James was a member of an E-Team, a group of individuals working together from geographically diverse areas over the internet. James found that working in a virtual environment was particularly easy for him, as his shyness often left him hesitant to share his ideas out loud. He and his team members were highly skilled in their fields, but lived hundreds of miles apart. Rather than having them relocate, their company decided to have them work from home and collaborate electronically. At first it was difficult getting the team familiar with one another, but a high level of trust and strong communication skills helped everyone feel comfortable with each other and find their rhythm in the team.
