I'm looking for tips on how to excel when you're the one person virtually located on a team.
We have a 12-person team that is being completely replaced. I'm in the US and the rest of the team is being hired and will be in India. I have about 30 years experience with the company and the rest of the team will be new.
I'm feeling nervous about how to build a relationship with my boss-to-be and how to excel in his eyes. I assume that I'll deliver all of my tasks, and I see lots of potential improvements to be made. But between time zones that have maybe an hour of overlap at around 5:30 AM and the rest of the team that is together all of the time and also has constant visibility and access to the Lead, what tips do you have to keep from being the overlooked team member when it's time for an annual performance ranking.
