Center for Creative Leadership research with 141 virtual teams across the globe, from multiple industries and sectors, found that introducing a new perspective—polarity thinking™—helps teams to improve their performance over time. The polarity approach provides a shift in mindset, skillset, and practice that helps virtual teams manage the unsolvable tensions that are present—and even exacerbated—at a distance.
