having a completely distributed team can make it very difficult for team members to get to know each other on a personal level
There is lots that gets missed from the chance encounters of in-person interactions.
I've found this to be a challenge when onboarding at a new company.
Many of the ways we happen to meet people in a normal office environment can go away, the chance encounters need to become intentional ones.
It can feel awkward reaching out to someone over slack to ask for something if you have never had any kind of casual conversation or interaction with them before.
