The pandemic has accelerated remote work for many organizations, and this has led a lot of people to have “ZOOM fatigue.” It’s important to set up your schedule in a way that allows you to bring as much of yourself to all of your meetings and each virtual interaction. In this episode of the Intentional Greatness® podcast, Sue shares how she organizes her schedule to preserve energy, allowing her best self to show up on calls.Maintaining Engagement
People are capable of sitting down and watching a five-hour Superbowl game, but often struggle to sit through an hour-long meeting. Leaders must learn how to facilitate meetings in a way that keeps the audience engaged. People participate differently in larger meetings, so using techniques like asking questions and using rooms to put people in smaller groups to have a more intimate conversation is key.Creating Connection
Leaders are struggling to keep the water cooler conversation alive in a remote work setting. People are busy, which causes leaders to be hesitant to put another meeting on the calendar, even if it is for fun. The most respectful way for leaders to connect with their employees is to ask them what works best. Some may want an informal one-on-one meeting, while others may prefer to have a monthly virtual happy hour. The key is to ask, and know that it is okay for someone to change their mind.
