Make the most of
YOUR VIRTUAL MEETINGS
Effective meetings can be a challenge even when everyone is in the same room. Too often people think that meetings are about just showing up but this approach can lead to a lot of wasted time and minimal results.
All too often we look at virtual meetings as our 'second-best' option. We like to meet in person because it's what we're used to doing so it doesn't require us to adapt ourselves to work in an unfamiliar space or platform. But, if used to their potential, virtual meetings can offer you many advantages:
Save money (travel)
Save time (commuting)
Enables multiple layers of communication available simultaneously (verbal, visual, textual)
Everyone has a whiteboard marker in their hand at all times
Eliminates uncertainty - share immediately rather than waiting for face-to-face opportunities
Faster, more informed decision making - immediate access to resources regardless of location
Ease of sharing (no projector required, no need to send or download files)
Immediate feedback and informed discussion on content and concepts
Empowers personal productivity decisions (e.g. where to work)
Improves virtual team cohesion/team building
