With so many businesses moving their operations online, many leaders are struggling to find a balance in hybrid environments. The remote experience has a learning curve and things become even more complicated when you combine it with in-person activity.
Four tips for engaging meetings in a hybrid environment:
- Send out a pre-meeting email where everyone can access all meeting materials.
- Give everyone a chance to voice questions or concerns.
- As much as possible make sure everyone can see and hear each other, and encourage a friendly, professional discourse.
- Encourage everyone to participate and make an effort to make the remote employees feel included.
Hybrid work environments can be challenging, however, when you have the right tools in place, you can change your meetings from chaotic to connected.
