Distance work has been forced upon all of us with the arrival of the pandemic. Managing meetings with staff working from home – although greatly facilitated by the range of technology tools at our disposal – has proved difficult for many managers. What has changed? During online meetings, team members tend to remain
silent, to be less committed, and to multitask. How can you as leaders fully engage team members, elicit their creativity, and raise their motivation level?

Impactful online meetings need not only to be designed totally differently from face-to-face meetings, but also to be facilitated in a different way. You will learn in this workshop how to develop a virtual mindset and will also acquire the necessary skills to make virtual collaboration effective.

Any manager who wants to revitalize their team and come across as a successful and competent leader.

Develop a virtual mindset and acquire the necessary skills to design and lead effective online meetings.
