During this public health crisis, most
business activities have shifted to the virtual realm. Are we making the
best use of technology in our meetings? Have you ever been captive in a
virtual meeting that drags on seemingly forever? Have you ever experienced
a meeting where no one was engaged? Are people multi-tasking during the
meeting rather than giving it their full attention? Are people confused
by the technology? These virtual meeting patterns are common. They lead
to frustration, inefficiency and lost opportunities. The good news is that
there are skills and tools that can ensure the virtual meetings you lead are
enjoyable and productive for everyone. Additionally, the skills and
strategies can be applied to in-person meetings.
According to the Wharton Center for Applied
Research at the University of Pennsylvania, there are 55 million meetings a day
in the U.S., yet only 20% of leaders receive any training. The average
senior executive spends 23 hours each week in meetings. Sadly, senior and
middle managers report that a mere 56 percent of meetings are productive and
that a phone call or email could replace more than 25 percent of
meetings. When the resources that are involved in meetings each day are
considered alongside of these statistics, the financial drain to organizations
alone is devastating.
Whether the purpose of the meeting is for
problem-solving, sharing information, training, selling or some other
objective, setting and exceeding high expectations is important. The success of
both the business and your own credibility is at stake.
During this virtual workshop, participants
align their virtual presence with their in-person professional presence and
