Americas: How to Stop the Productivity Killers that Plague Virtual Meetings

In partnership with:

Nowadays, a lot of meeting planning is done through videoconferencing and other forms of virtual meetings. So you’re probably familiar with this scenario:

You log on to Google Hangouts and wait for your team to arrive. 

Bob’s face appears on screen, but you can’t hear his voice. Maria’s Wi-Fi connection isn’t stable, and she can’t hop on the phone because she’s traveling overseas. 

By the time Bob familiarizes himself with the mute button, it’s 10 minutes after the appointment time; Stefan is MIA because, being on Pacific Standard Time, he overslept and missed the 4 a.m. (his time) call.

When you reconvene that afternoon, Bob and Stefan immediately commandeer the conversation, while Maria listens quietly in the background. You can’t tell whether she agrees with what they’re saying or she’s just too polite to interrupt.

These are just some of the productivity killers that plague virtual meetings...
