A "communities of practice" is a group of people who share a craft or profession. It's a way to share experiences, learn and develop competence together as a collective. CoP's are not new, but advances in technology allow people to form them online. In this podcast, I will discuss the four ways I've seen remote teams form CoPs.

What's special about Jerry Koch-Gonzalez's meetings is that they are sociocratic. How often have you been part of a call where one person in the group hardly had any chance to speak? Their ideas and experiences are lost for the group if we don't make sure everyone can speak. "No one ignored" is the essence of Sociocracy and it ensures both effectiveness and equivalence of voices in a meeting. For more stories, visit www.CollaborationSuperpowers.com.

We can really focus and get a lot done in our productive workspaces, but we have to be careful about not holing up for days and isolating ourselves from the outside world. We all have different needs when it comes to being social. Some people, like me, love working on our own. Others like the buzz of being around others in a coffee shop or coworking space. Regardless of our preferences, remote workers need to be actively focused on getting enough social activity. For more stories, visit www.CollaborationSuperpowers.com.

Telepresence technology has two main challenges for global companies to consider. The first is the cost and time investment to implement. The equipment can be expensive and there must be a fast, stable internet connection for the quality to be sufficient. It also takes time to learn and adopt new etiquettes when working with virtual colleagues. The second challenge is the security risk of having a remote controlled robot roaming around your office or warehouse streaming information online. In this episode, we explore the downsides of using telepresence technology on remote teams. For more information visit www.CollaborationSuperpowers.com.
