Communication burnout

Communication burnout

f you’re feeling burned out in your virtual meetings, chances are your colleagues, team, and bosses are feeling it, too.

You can try to pep talk your way out of it, but if you aren’t feeling engaged yourself, it is probably a futile strategy to energize your team. You must put your oxygen mask on first before helping others, as they say.

Take time back

When possible, if you know the goals of the meeting have been accomplished, and it is five, 10, or 15 minutes before the scheduled end, don’t feel obligated to use the entire time for the sake of using the entire time. Wrap up early when possible.

It is a great way to acknowledge the meeting accomplished its purpose and allow the participants time for productivity or recharging.

Get better at scheduling breaks

  • Be sure to give yourself at least 10 minutes in between meetings. Meetings will occasionally run over the allotted time. With a 10-minute buffer, you can avoid both being late to the next meeting and the associated stress of anticipating being late.
  • If you are running on time, you can take those 10-minute intervals to walk away from your screen, give your eyes a break.
  • It is also important to block off time specifically for responding to emails, attending to any work that doesn’t involve a live meeting or simply regrouping.

Strive for variety

While routine can be comforting, strive for variety when it comes to your communication, especially in a virtual setting. One way to achieve this is with the camera function in your meetings. There can be a striking difference when interactions usually held on-camera move to audio-only.

Communication is subtly looser and less adulterated. Likewise, interactions that are typically held using just audio can gain clarity and nuance when the cameras are turned on because you can recognize the nonverbal communication of the other participants.

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!

Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.
