Project teams are an effective and efficient way to manage change. The challenge of project leadership, even under the best of circumstances, substantially increases when leading a geographically dispersed and culturally diverse team in the virtual environment. The virtuous leading of the virtual project must match the demands of the transformational leader as to trustworthiness, broadband communication, and professional ethics. Empathy for cross-cultural issues, savvy with cyberspace, and the leveraging of technology to deal with change resistance are essential leadership skills.
