In a post-COVID world virtual and hybrid (where some people are in the room and some are not) meetings are becoming the norm for team and customer collaboration – by MS Teams, Zoom, WebEx and a host of other platforms.

Jobs and whole industries that relied on face-to-face contact are redesigning their services and interactions to go virtual.

Unfortunately these virtual and hybrid meetings are often badly run and fail to create engagement and participation.

It doesn’t have to be this way. If you need to stand out in this new environment, then your ability to run engaging, inclusive and effective virtual and hybrid meetings will need to be a key part of your toolkit.

Read our book Leading remote and virtual teams: Managing yourself and others in remote and hybrid teams or when working from home – with practical tips on having fewer, better virtual meetings.
