Team leaders, project managers and others who chair virtual meetings through any type of communication technology.
Group size: up to 12 participants
Facilitating effective virtual meetings is a skill that can be learnt. Poorly run virtual meetings often result in lower quality decisions, less motivation, lower engagement and even frustration or conflict. The skilled remote leader knows how to chair and create an engaging, pleasant setting for a meeting where participants contribute, feel engaged and the task is accomplished.
Managed well, you know that virtual meetings can be both effective and highly economical. You can meet and work at any time with colleagues globally, saving significantly in travel, time and accommodation costs.
Overcome your fear of virtual meetings Executives everywhere fear virtual meetings. Managing the video conference suite with a mind of its own – or the crashing software platform – is not much fun. And no one wants to look technically inexpert in front of colleagues and clients. So how can you be clear and engaging when you don’t know if people are listening, or checking their emails? Indeed – are they even there? Fear of losing colleagues’ attention is another common fear, alongside managing the participant who keeps on talking.
“The virtual training classroom training was a wonderful learning journey with an extraordinary group of professional colleagues, led by the very competent staff at Nomadic. You demonstrated what you taught us; you walked the walk. I came into the training with some anxiety around learning the WebEx technology and grasping the distinctions of virtual meetings and I left with a new confidence in my abilities moving forward.”
