Overcoming Techziety

With the upsurge of the virtual world, we tend to often worry whether we'll be able to connect to the meeting, gadget malfunction, or if you will be able to integrate the message you want to send through a virtual meeting.

If you're experiencing this, try these:

  1. Have a back up plan ready. If you have a presentation, print out your report or send everyone a copy in advance;
  2. Invest in technology, it will be worth it;
  3. Allow yourself to rest; and
  4. Remember that it's not the end of the world.

Why Zoom Calls Drain Us
  • Video calls require more focus than face-to-face chatting. We have to pay more attention to process the non-verbal cues like tone, pitch, body language and facial expressions. There is also a feeling of dissonance when the minds are together but the bodies are physically apart.
  • One finds it harder to relax in a conversation, as even a slight delay (silence) makes us feel that the other person is not friendly or focused enough. 

Just being invited to the party is not enough. Many companies inadvertently make remote employees feel like second-class citizens. When organizing company events, they do not consider the logistical problems their remote employees face, such as plane tickets and hotel costs.

Some companies who do remember to host remote workers do not always include them properly. Videoconferencing means virtual employees can watch everyone having a good time, but they can't participate and will still feel excluded.
