Now it seems like everybody is online doing video conference calls and holding more meetings from home than we ever did while in the office.
I have heard more than several people comment that they didn’t talk this much to their co-workers when they were sitting just down the hall from them, and now it is Zoom after Zoom after Zoom! And I know that there are other video conferencing platforms, but it is funny how Zoom has gone from being just the name of a company to being a verb. “I will zoom with the team this afternoon” or “Let’s zoom”.
After having sat through more than my fair share of meetings in person and online, I just had to come to you with my Top 10 Tips For More Effective Video Conferencing Meetings.
And all I can say is that some things just must be said. So understand I am going to bring you some tough love here. Man up! Get dressed! Come ready! Turn on your video camera! Turn off your cell phone notifications! Stop peaking at your email inbox & be present! Did I mention, get dressed?!
Some of us are taking too much liberty with the working from home thing and being more casual than the law allows. Let’s not neglect the little things that help you get your day off to a productive start.
Be intentional about what you are doing and how you show up for your day and the people who are depending on you!
I love working from home and the flexibility that it provides me. But I also respect the fact that it requires discipline to set boundaries for yourself and your loved ones. Sometimes that is easier to do than others. Sometimes that means you are putting in way more hours than you would have if you were in a set office environment because it is too easy to just continue working on that inspired idea. And other times, that means that you are drawn to your kitchen to make a sandwich.
At the end of the day, you still have to get the job done. Be a star!
