Join Dave Crenshaw for an in-depth discussion in this video Stay engaged in video meetings, part of Time Management Tips Weekly.
- Do you use video conferencing in your workplace?…Many people do,…yet also many people report that it's distracting…and it's hard to actually have a productive meeting…because of everything that's going on on the screen.…I find that there are two places…where we need to get the most from a video conference.…One is how we prepare…and the other is what we do during the conference itself.…First, in the prepare part,…we want to test the platform that we're going to use.…
We want to test the equipment we will be using,…both video and audio.…We also want to send clear instructions…to everyone in advance…about how to log in and access the platform.…We also want to make sure that we're sitting…in a chair and in a place where we are comfortable.…You may be sitting there for a while…and you want to make sure…that you're relaxed and able to focus.…Also, shut down any programs that are running…perhaps in the background…that might access data.…
This can actually gum up the flow…of the video conference…and make it harder to see people.…
