How to Lead Great Virtual Meetings

  • Prepare A Solid Plan: What you'll do before, at the start, during, and at end for results.
  • Engage Participants: Maximize interactivity, participation and collaboration.
  • Trouble Shoot: Ensure your right technology, anticipate pitfalls and manage well.

Who this is for.

You don't have to be a professional facilitator to help your virtual team collaborate and succeed online, but you will benefit greatly from learning and adopting their tools and practices. This five-module online course will empower any meeting leader with the foundational skills, practical methods, valuable tips, and proven frameworks to lead great virtual meetings.

Lead like the pros. Get their results.


Right Technology

Getting your technology right for the work is essential: Right functionality; right tech roles; right pre- and -post meeting practices and right use during sessions.


Efficient Process

Systematically structure your recurring virtual meetings for optimal functioning with standard formats, agendas and templates.


Run A Great Meeting

Plan and lead each meeting for excellence and engagement. Prepare participants beforehand. Engage well with questions and interactivity tools. End with clarity.


Facilitate Larger Meetings

Open unstructured discussion is the default meeting mode. This doesn't work in larger groups. Apply virtual meeting toolbox options to engage everyone.


Adopt Professional Strategies

Attend to 5 dimensions of great meetings: Attention. Interaction. Information. Organization and Energy. Pro-actively anticipate common problems.
