We are all used to working in teams – both in the workplace and at home – but the ability to coordinate and collaborate with others is becoming more and more important as we enter the workplace of the future.
In the new world of work, many teams will be virtual and highly fluid. The key to team productivity, success and team satisfaction, is collaboration. Effective collaboration is achieved when the output of the team is greater than any individual member could achieve on their own. Although there are many factors that impact collaboration, trust is by far the most important, and trust needs reliability and consistency to develop.
