How to make the most out of remote meetings

Updated: Feb 5, 2021

I'm sure we've all had just about enough of this 'unprecedented time' of back to back remote meetings. Who else has found that they are now having double the amount of meetings they had when everyone was able to meet face to face, and feel about half as productive?

It's time to say enough! Just because you may not be seeing your colleagues or coworkers face to face does not mean that we need to be stuck in zoom meetings repeating "You're on mute Dave" and "Sorry, I just dropped out for a minute, can you repeat that" hour upon hour like some pandemic groundhog day hell....

Do we not remember how to just pick up the phone and have a chat about an issue with someone without it becoming a 2 hour saga with a cast of thousands?

Well I say let's take our time back. Let's attend meetings that have agendas, purposes and requirements to brainstorm to solve problems. Let's decline meetings that can be resolved by telephone chats and emails. Let's get back to investing our time in the activities we do that are going to reap the most benefits, for us and for our businesses.

And let's not forget to be thankful for the fact that we can now turn our cameras off when we need to hide our facial expressions.
