FREE Webinar – Conducting Effective Remote Meetings

WHEN: October 7th @ 11am (EST)
TO REGISTER: email chris@qualitysupportgroup.com

ABSTRACT:
Bringing your team together to discuss and decide how to address urgent day-to-day work issues, while also planning for the longer-term, was already challenging enough in our pre-COVID-19 workplaces, when we could often meet onsite and in-person.

In our ‘new normal’ work setting the need for effective planning and execution is even greater; and the barriers to achieve useful meeting outcomes have never been more complex.

In this one-hour live webinar we will cover the ‘principles and the practicals’ of preparing and conducting effective online/remote planning meetings.

Our emphasis will be on addressing and reducing the real barriers of ‘remoteness.’  Teams that used to be effective planning units can regain their discipline and effectiveness.

Everyone needs to adjust their on-site & in-person meeting and planning mindset, to the new normal of online and remote.  Team leaders need to update their meeting facilitation skills to be effective in an online setting; and team members need to adjust their meeting skills to contribute effective to remote planning.

This webinar will help you prepare yourself, your team and your remote & online planning meetings to overcome the barriers; take advantage of the opportunities, and, ultimately, succeed in our ‘new normal’ workplaces!
