About the course

Engaging people for peak performance

By now, virtual meetings have become a standard way of doing business and communicating with the people you work with. But many virtual meetings are not as efficient and effective as they could be. Unclear purpose, information overload and lack of participant engagement are all common challenges when conducting meetings online.

This program provides tips and techniques for planning and executing virtual meetings that will engage people for peak performance. Clarify the meeting purpose and keep things focused on what is most important. Optimize platform options by using visual and audio inputs in an energizing way. Make efficient and effective use of meeting time. Encourage full involvement, and ensure that everyone’s voice gets heard.

The program can be taken on its own or as part of the Leading Self and Others in the New Workplace series, a 5-course survival kit of communication and leadership programs for skilling up in changing times.
