 External reference - Steve Tooke's report of the [CucumberPro](https://cucumber.io/pro) team's use of Remote Mobbing. Includes how they discovered the need and specific tactics they use to make it work for them.
 
 As a comment on that post, [Carlos Ble](https://disqus.com/by/carlosble/) describes how they use a Wacom tablet to "remote" the use of a whiteboard, and their preferences for screen sharing apps.

 There is an old saying in software (so not that old), that "latitude hurts but longitude kills". I've been working with distributed teams (agile and otherwise) for 17 years and I can easily say this is true. Having [[team members in different time zones|async]] in the United States is a mild difficulty. Having a team split between Chicago and Hyderabad is close to impossible (never stops people from trying).
 
 In order to work effectively with a team in software you must have constant and deep communication. Even with the best tools at your disposal (Slack, Hangouts etc), having literally ZERO common work hours that aren't a pain for one party or another makes communication a major problem. Eventually one side or the other is waiting 12 hours for someone else to respond to something.

+# Making Space
+
+In peer facilitation, we often talk about the space we each take up in the room. We fill that space with our physical presence, how we lay out our materials or tools in front of us, how and how often we use our voices.
+
+As a facilitator, it's our job to keep the space balanced. To make sure that that person isn't hiding behind their laptop, that other person isn't lost in their phone, this person over here doesn't keep talking over the other voices in the room.
+
+Most agile teams don't have the luxury of a facilitator who will help balance all these things, and so that responsibility falls upon everyone.
+
+- How do we help others understand the space they take up in a room?
+- How do we solicit input from the quite ones amongst us?
+- How do we manage disagreement and conflict?
+
+These things are all part of what I like to develop as a Safe Space Agreement.
+
+What makes a space safe?
+
+- There is an expectation of equality and respect
+- There is no judgement of others, no shaming
+- There is no place for abuse or violence (raised voices are violent, talking over people is violent, shaming others is violent)
+
+When a space is safe, it allows key qualities to emerge in our conversations that espouse our deeply held agile values.
+
+- Courage
+- Collaboration
+- Kindness
+- Kind Honesty (not brutal honesty, which can be a silencing technique)
+
+Sometimes we do this when introducing retrospectives to a team, but it is something that should be brought to every engagement among team members.
