Double the engagement and productivity of your next online meeting with this comprehensive e-book from a skilled facilitator.
Here’s a few tell-tale signs that your online meetings may be in need of a service.
- We are still frustrated with other’s unfamiliarity with online meeting platforms – (it’s never us!)
- We feel drained afterwards.
- We feel rushed and want more time to explore discussion points.
For most of us it still feels slightly surreal to be working online, often still at home, some of us in the midst of lockdown. But decisions must still be made, projects completed, services delivered, and programs developed.
As a facilitator, I help organisations have the meetings, workshops and forums to achieve these outcomes. Over the past few months, all of these have been online. Despite several months to adjust, the same problems and mistakes persist.
Some of the problems with online meetings are easier to fix than others. My book Hum does that. If you would like help with the harder ones, my Get Humming program can help. It’s a multi-layered program to make online meetings more engaging and productive, and improve online meeting culture and practices. If this sounds like it would be of value to you, let’s make a time to talk to see if it would be a good fit.
I hope you find some valuable information in Hum. Please feel free to share it with anyone who you think would find it useful.
- Adjusting to new technology
The book runs through 24 problems in these four areas, recommending handy fixes. There is also a handout of tips to share with participants and a template for a bingo energiser.
