Getting Results in Virtual Meetings
We are in meetings all the time! As we spend more and more of our time in virtual meetings, the skills we use to make meetings effective don’t always work. We need new approaches to achieve the same results. In this session, we will tackle the three things leaders do that make virtual meetings less effective therefore, less valuable.
Meetings are less valuable when leaders:
- Allow their virtual audience to consistently multi-task
- Let the audience hide and not participate
- Drone on and on or let several audience members do the same
