QuickTalks: Jonas Ridderstrale: Engaging and Reenergizing your Team: Investing in Psychological Capital
To truly engage employees, you must tap into their emotional side in addition to their intellect. Intellectual capability is associated with only 28% of high performance; psychological factors explain more. Confidence, for example, explains 38%. Add hope, optimism, and resiliency and it becomes clear that psychological capital is as important as intellectual capital. The best employees possess not only high skill but also high will: skill + will. A different leadership style is needed to energize both skill and will. Pamper your employees as you do your customers.

QuickTalks: Lynda Gratton: Raising Performance and Collaboration in Virtual Teams
What it takes to be successful in a team that is co-located is not the same as what it takes to be successful in a virtual team. Virtual teams are more likely to be motivated and energized if they have a great task that pulls the team together. Second, after a virtual team has worked together for a while, relationships begin to break down. To counter this, face-to-face or video-enabled meetings should be scheduled from time to time, to pull the team together.
