Online and Hybrid Meeting Management Training

One of the main hybrid world challenges has become the ability to run inclusive effective meetings.  Many chairs are expressing frustration concerning attendee commitment too, and participation in, online meetings.  This is made even more difficult when running truly hybrid meetings where some are gathered in one location and others are dispersed online.  There are many published statistics that propose meeting disengagement is at an all time high.  Slido published their survey suggesting that 57% of people actively multitask during online meetings and, 44% said they become demotivated, while 42% confess that they take a look at the news of social media.  If these numbers were only half true, this would still be a new pandemic of disengagement.

Once people retreat into observer mode, it’s extremely hard to bring them back into full participation.  So this course is a total shake up on how you run meetings in order to establish connection and ensure full active participation in every meeting you run from this point forward.
