Take 3, Scene 20: Developing Trust with Global Teams

On this episode of Take 3, Kevin Boyle and Paul Doman join us to talk about the challenges and rewards of building trust with globally-distributed teams. We talk about their experience with different teams spread across the world, and how the trust they help build between team members strengthened the team completely.

Many teams at 3Pillar have members in our multiple office locations in the USA, Romania, and India. These teams face the expected challenges of figuring out when to meet across timezones and keeping their work in sync with each other. But the onset of these globally distributed teams always brings across the challenge – how do the members learn trust each other when they can’t even work in the same room together?
