Many people may think that hiring a virtual team is risky. Can everyone really work together productively towards the end goal without meeting or being in the same location?
As Virtual Assistants, it’s a question many of our potential clients ask. Managing a virtual team is no different than managing staff which are office based. All that is needed are clear directions and everyone can easily work towards the same goal.
I came across composer and conductor Eric Whitacre not so long ago and he probably takes the idea of a virtual team to the extremes.
Eric Whitacre conducts virtual choirs. His latest performance “Cloudburst” brought together in real time 32 singers from around the world to join in with an onstage choir.
If he can get everyone to sing from the same hymn sheet, there’s nothing stopping anyone to do the same!
