Four ways to create role clarity within virtual teams

• Ensure the team has clear expectations around its duties, responsibilities, and the tasks of each team member. Allow time to explain what tasks need to be completed and what the objectives are.
• Encourage team members to share information about their tasks and responsibilities to increase transparency across the team and provide team-level role clarity.
• Remember that providing role clarity isn’t a ‘one off thing’ – make sure to check in with your team occasionally to ensure that your expectations still match up.
• Be careful not to define roles too tightly. Consider defining objectives and responsibilities at the team-level and then encouraging team members to autonomously define their own roles
