Meetings aren’t the favorite part of most people’s working days. In fact on the list of most people’s complaints about work, meetings are often high on the list. And there is a fast rising complaint that comes from a special type of the meeting – the remote or virtual meeting.
Take all of the challenges we already have with meetings, then use technology to allow people to “meet” at a distance, over the phone or internet, and you have a recipe for additional frustration, more challenges in engaging people and having people listen, and one more way to suck the productivity, passion and energy out of a team.
Enter Wayne Turmel. Wayne is an author, speaker and masterful trainer who has spent the last several years studying and helping people and organizations deal with the challenges of remote and virtual work. And whether you are part of a project team spread across the globe or lead a team of people who live close but tele-commute, he might be your new best friend.
We are collaborating with Wayne to bring his valuable and successful webinar – Leading Effective Virtual Meetings – to you on January 29 at Noon ET.
