Opening your eyes is the hardest part — to the fact that the workplace is now virtual, that people are spread across office sites with some fully remote, but mostly, that a perspective change is required to succeed in this new reality.

Use an Assignment Brief to avoid wasting time and ensure you are on the same page from the beginning.

Hybrid & remote meetings require an intentional facilitation style to ensure people feel included and engaged. “Wayfinding” is a technique that we role model and teach. It means to deliberately set expectations with your participants during multiple milestones within the meeting – to lay out where you are headed and how you would like them to engage with you along the way.

Example: “I'm about to review 3 different topic areas. Each area will have 2 subpoints. I will pause at the end of each topic area to ask for input and questions – that’s when I would like you contribute by either raising your virtual hand or using the meeting chat box.”

Using “wayfinding” gives people the opportunity to formulate their questions or input so that they are ready when the time comes to chime in.

What techniques do you use to actively facilitate a hybrid or remote meeting?
