Product Details

Virtual meetings are here to stay. However, do you sometimes wonder if anyone is paying attention or simply exhausted from all the virtual meetings we attend these days? As a meeting leader, do you fear that virtual meetings may seem to some like a license to multitask? What happens if someone sits back and tunes out? Have you ever presented an idea in a virtual meeting, paused for a reaction, and then heard, “I’m not sure I followed you,” which might as well mean, “I was shampooing my cat and didn’t realize I would be called on.” It does not have to be this way. With the right preparation and strategy, virtual meetings provide teams with a safe, effective, and efficient way to get things done.

Who Should Attend
Current and future managers and team leads with responsibilities for coordinating the efforts of remote or hybrid teams or individuals; Human Resources professionals serving as advisors to current and future remote team managers.
