Michael, what a great read and how helpful as many of our managers are remote from their teams.  I would strongly agree that setting clear expectations, utilizing technology and keeping communication key will make for effective management.  Additionally although teams are remote they can still take part in team building activities.  Such as manager requesting each team member to give them three fun facts about themselves.  The manager can then create a spreadsheet to share with the team and see how well team members know each other. This will generate virtual conversation and hopefully bring each other closer together.  Another way to utilize technology would be to participate in a video conferencing vs. phone conferencing to be able to see each other as non verbal communication (facial expressions) are important parts of communicatio and keep the team more engaged.

Thank you for sharing.
