5 Benefits of Working with Virtual Teams
“All children are artists. The problem is how to remain an artist once he grows up.”
Do you ever see children playing around and sharing their ideas with other children as they build an imaginative and seemingly fun world of their own, and then you wonder, would we ever be able to replicate the world they created throughout our lives?
Everyone has their artistic potential. This potential may be observed more in children because they are free from the shackles of heavy responsibilities. This is why, as we grow older and as our responsibilities pile up, we slowly lose our flare for creativity.
But what if you have the option of working your way through life like the artistic child we once were? A career that transports us to a virtual world where you get to play around with a variety of ideas and share it around to the world that you built. This is just some of the many ways to describe what it is like being able to work virtually. Let’s take a deeper dive into the advantages of working virtually!
1. Play with Ideas
As a kid, we loved spaces that were both enjoyable and beneficial to our imaginations, like a playground.
Our eyes would always sparkle at the sight of one. Well, with such an open environment and with your playmates all having fun, it is understandable for kids to feel carefree in one. This feeling also translates to when we work remotely because freedom in many aspects is its key takeaway. Freedom in managing your own time, in building and customizing your own work environment, and freedom in being able to choose who you want to connect with both inside and outside of the company. Aside from this, you also have less, if not zero, restrictions when coming up with ideas and executing it. The virtual setup cuts the worries of a company with a small or an insufficient budget and the restrictions of physical activities amidst a pandemic. Through this, you are free to play around with your ideas and let your creative juices overflow to the world without worrying about the barriers of physicality.
2. Share your Passion
With playmates coming from different backgrounds, you become more open to the differences of every individual that it broadens your mind and creates more space for out-of-the-box ideas.
It also makes you more enthusiastic in sharing your very own differences so others can also create ideas not just familiar to you, but also unique to you. With a wider array of diverse ideas, you get a virtual team empowered and not restricted by their creativity and passion as they are encouraged to think of more innovative and productive ideas. Alongside such an engaged team, you get the best quality outputs because during the brainstorming, everybody from the team shares their ideas that come from different backgrounds, and with this, they share a piece of their passion in their projects.
3. Create your World
With a virtual team fueled by their passion, you have the ability to paint the town with the colors you desire as your works transcend throughout the world you choose to create.
The freedom that virtual work entails allows flexibility to take place. This aspect benefits not just young professionals starting out in the field but also experienced executives. It’s not too late for a healthy change of work lifestyle. Through a career that takes place virtually, you have the flexibility to create your own world. The flexibility of customizing your work environment gives you a sense of personal touch while working. This trivial detail lets you know that you are not being caged to your career. You are not counting the days, or even hours, of when work is going to end until you can finally reach home. Because as you work, you will always feel (and literally be) at home.
4. Do More!
Because of the overall flexibility of remote work, you have the privilege of time to be able to do more than usual.
You could be doing something as minute as sleeping or something beneficial to your growth such as developing your talents. Time management is the key to being able to do more than usual. Through a remote setup, virtual teams won’t limit your time and potential. If anything, it might even boost it. As long as you can manage your time well, you can spare a hefty amount of time for the things that you love to do. And if you are good enough in doing so, you might even be able to not just allocate time for your respective tasks, but also combine it. Personally, as a person who likes to write, I get to easily combine this personal hobby of mine with work, proof of that is what you are reading now. You not only get to have that work-life balance, but you can also develop both.
5. Build Connection
With a virtual setting, the opportunities and ideas you could bring to the table are limitless.
This is also reinforced by the fact that you have access to a global talent pool and their resources. You get to choose who, what, and where you want to connect with through your work. Build relationships and connections not just within the field of your work, but also to your audience. Virtual outputs in virtual work have the power to transcend even the farthest places of the world, so remember to always go back to why we create in the first place. Always contribute to a greater cause, so you not just build a better world in your virtual work, but this can also go beyond our physical world.
The amount of times the word ‘you’ has been mentioned does not only make it seem redundant. But it is also a constant reminder to all working individuals that you are the captain of your own ship, you can either have the capability to implement or shift to a remote setup where the advantages, like the opportunities, are limitless. Virtual work doesn’t just bring you convenience, but it can also bring you growth and development, not just with the employees, but with the company as well.
