Vulnerability is the antidote to distance.
Teams are meant to work closely with each other. As a team experiences the ups and downs of their journey, they should develop dynamic relationships that allow for vulnerability. Vulnerability happens when people know us well enough to see through the personas we all tend to present in place of who we are deep down inside. Teams that seem distant from each other probably lack the vulnerability to function as a team. They are more like a group of individuals that work separately towards mutual benefit.
