9 Essential Tips For More Effective Hybrid And Virtual Meetings

Lorraine is a LinkedIn Learning Instructor for 2 popular meeting courses (30,000+ learners!)

Working from home isn’t going anywhere—and neither are meetings. There’s always going to be a need for teams to gather in one room.

But now that some employees are joining those rooms virtually, it’s time to rethink the status quo as more meetings with less impact continue to get added to our calendars, leading to problems like Zoom fatigue and burnout.

In fact, we have 250% more meetings every day than we did before the pandemic. We’re also spending more than half of our standard workweek in meetings, for a whopping total of 21.5 hours. It’s costing companies billions and leading to unhappy employees — a recipe for disaster.

Join Lorraine as she shares strategies for making your virtual and hybrid meetings more engaging, collaborative, and productive.

In this virtual session you’ll learn:

  • How to drive engagement and create a productive meeting
  • Ways to ensure all voices are heard and included in the meeting
  • What you need to properly plan and prepare for your hybrid meeting
