With very few exceptions, attaching a numerical rating to an individual's performance is fraught with difficulty for… Continue

How To Build Trust When Your Team’s Members Don’t Know Each Other



In many (most?) larger organizations,  cross-functional teams are formed whose members are in different locations (sometimes in different states and even in different countries) and know little (if anything) about each other.
