Meetings have long ranked as one of the people’s least favorite things about their jobs. Now, that they are attending hour after hour of virtual meetings, the flaws and weaknesses of the meeting format are only exaggerated.
In this session, we’ll review the fundamentals of good meeting practices that apply to both in-person and virtual meetings. In addition, we’ll focus on the elements that are specific to running a successful virtual meeting.
Managers, team leaders, facilitators, human resources—anyone who is responsible for facilitating or attending meetings.
It’s hard to keep your attention during a virtual meeting, and it is exhausting. In a virtual meeting, people have to work harder to process non-verbal cues like facial expressions, the tone and pitch of the voice, and body language. The natural interaction that occurs when people are attending a “live” meeting is stifled in the virtual environment. The result: people are disengaged and tempted to multi-task.
