What are the best remote team collaboration practices?

Teamwork ​requires cooperation, and cooperation leads to effective collaboration. To collaborate well you need to: respect the rights of others, be a ‘team player’, be cooperative, be assertive, and exhibit polite and considerate behavior.  

Good video etiquette is also essential for good remote collaboration.​ When you’re working remotely, the most real-time collaboration will be done via video conferencing. Make sure that you are doing what you can to make each video call as valuable as possible! ​

Be on time​, it cannot be stressed how important this is. If you are running late or can’t make the meeting, reach out and let someone know.  

Make sure your camera works and is positioned appropriately so that your whole face can be seen. Test your equipment before the meeting to make sure that everything works properly. Mute yourself when you are not speaking. 

Make sure you are seated in a well-lit room and there is no loud or otherwise distracting noise in the background. Remember to pay attention.
