What will help to reduce the deal with the preference paradox in virtual meetings? (2/2)

  • Hold asynchronous meetings, such as by creating a shared Google Doc for employees to contribute to throughout the day.
  • Build in breaks during long meetings and in between back-to-back meetings. Encourage employees to get up, stretch, and walk around.
  • Implement meeting-free time blocks or days.
  • Moderate and facilitate virtual meetings more actively, moving topics along when needed and ensuring that everyone has an opportunity to contribute.
  • Turn off “self view,” if possible, on your meeting platform and make camera use optional for some meetings.

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!
