++ Next session April 7 ++
With the Coronavirus sweeping the world, many organisations are asking their staff to work from home for extended periods of time.
Managers need to find ways of making their team meetings engaging, but it’s not as simple as applying the standard meeting format to an online space. When everyone is behind a screen, interpersonal dynamics change. It’s easier to hide and feel less connected, which fosters boredom and apathy over time.
Thankfully, there are a number of very easy techniques and exercises that can create the feeling of being in the room, even when you’re far away.
This is a Facilitated Online Workshop, so come prepared to participate! In this two-hour workshop we'll go through the fundamentals of a great online meeting. We’ll then practice using this methodology and reflect as we go along, so the methodology works for your organisation.
Some of the topics we will cover in this session:
- Basic online facilitation techniques
- How to use Zoom (an online conferencing tool) well
- Establishing a good online meeting culture
- Tips and practices for creating a positive and energizing atmosphere
