Product Details

As more and more people transition to remote working conditions where they need to effectively balance both personal and professional responsibilities, being able to switch their gears to “meeting mode” and then offer fully-present contributions to virtual work meetings does not happen easily. In addition, remote teams often find it challenging to build or sustain existing rapport with one another. As a result, your virtual meetings may struggle to encourage creativity and problem solving when your team members are dispersed and now rarely, if ever, get to meet face-to-face. A virtual ice breaker is a simple approach to get everyone warmed up for a meeting and wearing their meeting hats from home, to get conversations flowing, to break down barriers or shyness associated with being “online,” to energize a meeting, and to help team members learn more about each other. This session helps people . . .
