“How can I stop wasting time in useless & unproductive meetings?”
“My remote team members are terrible at virtual meetings.”
“Everyone is multitasking and not participating, and when they do take part they talk over each other and generally don’t get much done…”
“How can I stop having useless meetings and start having productive meetings?”
If there’s one questions we hear over and over again at The Remote Leadership Institute, it’s about virtual meetings…and more specifically, how to make them more effective.
Any meeting, especially a virtual meeting, has its challenges. A dog barks at a teammate’s home office, and suddenly the entire group is sharing stories about their pets. Before you know it, 10 minutes have gone by. Or an agenda item sparks a conversation that quickly veers off track, leaving everyone lost and unfocused on priority items. Even brainstorming sessions can be bogged down as people attempt to resolve every problem as it comes up during the discussion.
And the reality is meetings are a fact of life. Because when led and run properly, meetings are one of the most effective ways to get people together to discuss issues, solve problems and come up with new ideas. They can also be great for team building and improving professional relationships.
But unless you’ve had proper training in how to prepare, lead and get the best results from them, how do you know you’ll get tangible results?
