How do you build trust in a remote ecosystem?

Do you have any specified procedures, implemented habits, ad-hock actions that increase the sense of trust and togetherness in your remote environment?

    If you are talking from a management position, I actually don't think trust should be built at all! It needs to be granted by default and then revoked if extremely necessary. Other than that I think everything is a problem of visibility. People just need to write more about the things they've been working on.

    Togetherness is a lot harder, I appreciate tips on that as well, I have tried being more personal on my previous job but that only got me more distant from my coworkers. Now that I'm managing a team what I'm trying is encouraging people to solve a problem together so they interact more.

      Great suggestions. I think interaction is a great way to get to know each other, especially when solving a problem. You get to know everyone's expertise.
      I'll say important is to keep team members talking and questioning assumptions - of course within the limited. You could talk until the cows come home, but work also needs to get done :-)

    What kind of trust do you mean? What's the problem you're having that you want to address?

    Would it help if you implemented one of the flavors of Agile framework? (unless you did, and it's not helping, then we can discuss why)

    For my team, it's simply having team calls on a regular basis (weekly in our case).

    Builds both trust and a sense of comradery.
