“How can I stop people from multi-tasking during my meetings?”

It’s one of the most common questions we hear, and for good reason. Studies show that that 69% of attendees in your virtual meetings are actually working on something else.* Heck, some of them could even be taking a nap.

multi-tasking

In today’s increasingly virtual workplace, fewer meetings are held face to face, and you have no idea who’s doing what on the other end. And as much as we might hope for a technical solution to the problem, there is no software in the world that can ever tell you whether someone is really paying attention during those long stretches in a meeting.

Wouldn’t it be great if you could be confident that everyone on a call is really listening, engaged and ready to participate?

Learning simple meeting facilitation techniques puts this power in your hands.

We’re proud to sponsor a complimentary webinar next week- taught by the #1 facilitation company in the US - to help you get equipped with practical virtual meeting facilitation techniques.

You’ll learn from a master facilitator how to:

  • Prepare your virtual meeting "room"
  • Keep your participants involved - not multi-tasking
  • Manage common dysfunctions in virtual meetings
  • Focus your meeting with virtual engagement strategies
  • And much more...
