# Key Idea: Perform a "culture check"
# 关键概念:进行文化确认

Your virtual team will probably face geographical and cultural barriers. As the team leader, you can preempt cultural misunderstanding by asking your team members the right questions.
你的虚拟团队将可能面对地理和文化障碍。作为团队领导,你能通过询问团队成员正确合适的问题来预防文化误解。

If members of a virtual team are global or new to the group, it's useful to do a "culture check" to address the unique challenges that arise in virtual teams. Consider asking team members how they feel about the following:
如果虚拟团队的成员来自世界各地或新加入团队,进行文化确认对于应对虚拟团队的独特挑战有益有助于应对虚拟团队的独特挑战。请考虑询问团队成员怎样看待以下方面。

Working conditions: How much will team members be expected to travel? What resources will be available to them for getting their work done?
工作条件:团队成员将被期望进行多少旅行?什么资源将对他们开放以便使他们完成工作?

Hours of operation: How many hours per day or week are team members expected to work? How early or late are team members expected to be available for phone conferences?
工作时间:团队成员被期望每周或每天工作多少小时?团队成员被期望能够在多早或多晚参加电话会议?
For example, if the virtual team you're leading has a member in Taiwan and one in Germany, when can the team confer by phone so that some members aren't participating in phone conferences in the middle of the night (their time)?
例如,如果你带领的虚拟团队有一个成员在台湾和一个成员在德国,什么时候团队开电话会议能够使得一些成员不用在半夜(他们当地时间)参与?
Expectations about work during weekends or holidays, or overtime, may also vary. As the team leader, you need to carefully consider these questions and encourage team members to clarify expectations.
对于周末,节日或平时加班的看法也可能不尽相同。作为团队领导,你必需认真考虑这些问题,并且鼓励团队成员澄清看法阐明观点

Authority and delegation: Who will be responsible for making what types of decisions as the team does its work? Who has the authority to assign work to specific team members?
权威与委派授权与委托:在团队工作时,谁将负责做什么类型的决定?谁有权力对特定成员们分配工作?

Communication patterns: What are team members' assumptions about appropriate and acceptable communication—in particular, what is considered polite or impolite communication?
沟通方式:团队成员认为什么是合适且可接受的沟通——特别是,什么被认为是礼貌或不礼貌的沟通?
For instance, in some countries, a manager who does not maintain a proper distance and sharply defined role in his or her working relationships with subordinates loses respect. In such cultures, managers may not welcome shared decision making.
例如,在一些国家,一个不在与下属的工作关系中保持合适距离与明确定义的角色的经理会失去尊敬。在这样的国家里,经理们可能不欢迎分享决策权。

By clarifying these issues before starting its work, a virtual team can avoid misunderstandings and resentments later.
通过在开始工作前澄清这些问题,虚拟团队此后能够避免误解和仇恨愤慲
