Inefficient meetings aren’t just annoyances; they’re roadblocks to productivity and profitability, especially in a virtual setting.
Our global research study on virtual collaboration found that while running effective virtual meetings is a high priority, many virtual team leaders have never been trained on best practices. Instead, leaders are expected to figure it out for themselves. Unfortunately, this isn’t working — 49 percent of company stakeholders in our virtual study reported their virtual team leaders were not performing at a high level.
The good news is that by following a few best practices, team leaders can facilitate high-impact virtual meetings and keep people engaged.
We offer instructor-led online training or self-directed e-learning programs to help leaders become proficient at hosting effective virtual meetings.
