 How To: Great Online Meetings

The day to day reality of global cooperation, virtual teams and remote management is the online meeting. Just the pinging of the “has joined the meeting” chorus is enough to drive anyone crazy. So what is the answer? Less is much, much more: less of these meetings and keep them as short as possible. Like most meetings you get out what you put in, but the  key is to act as if people really are sitting in the room ……..

  • Start in the way that sets a good mood in the room.

  • Act as you would if they were in the room:  chat about real life, talk about the weather, ask people how they are – GIVE OF YOURSELF!

  • Show rather than tell  – use interesting slides, infographics and pictures.

  • Compensate for not being able to see everyone’s body language, habits and mood by listening hard and asking questions.

  • Let people know on chat a couple of minutes before you call on them to speak.

  • Remember the 1:2:3 FACT: FIX: FEEL rule for  online meetings where there is a challenge or conflict to discuss.

         For all the facts you mention, spend twice as long talking about the fix and     three times as long talking about how people feel about it .

  • Stand up if you are running the meeting. Your higher energy levels will be felt.
