Karen Sobel-Lojeski of Stony Brook University, a veteran observer of technology-mediated interactions, has coined the phrase "Virtual distance" to describe what’s lost when human interactions are not properly enabled by machines. She recommends three key core competencies for successfully leading today’s virtual workforce, including the creation of foundational context for co-workers, the cultivation of community, and co-activating leaders who "put themselves aside at times, assert their authority at other times, but recruit others to lead at all times.”
