  • Prepare for Anything to Happen! Gremlins are in the System! +

    Screen shot 2012 03 20 at 16.10.17It's Monday morning and you know what that means? Your virtual platforms service provider did a system update, your phone bridge software installed a bug fix, and none of your workshop participants checked their computer system before the program. Sound familiar? It's what we call gremlins in the system!

    Virtual training gremlins are pesky. Sometimes they appear without warning, but most of the time we can anticipate them and plan for them. We have to be doubly prepared. It could be Monday, Tuesday or the first virtual program of the week. So what do we recommend before that initial virtual program of the week?

    Plan more time and patience

    If you typically login 30 minutes prior to participants, plan on a logging in a full hour before the program starts. If you know there were software upgrades, make it longer. There may be new add-ins that have to be installed. The closer to show, the more rattled your nerves will be. You want to be able to make time for a calming breath before you start.

  • Are You Conducting a Lot of Virtual Meetings? Yes You Are! +

    Virtual call

    Recently I asked a group I was working with whether they had a lot of virtual meetings. The answers I got were mixed. Some said they were using screen-sharing tools, a few used more elaborate collaboration platforms, and others said no they weren't leading virtual meetings. Then I asked a different question. How many of you are on conference calls regularly? After a group groan, everyone's hand shot up.

    Remember, if you can't see the other person you are talking to, it's a virtual meeting. Why would we need to talk about this? We all know how to talk on the phone.

    We used to use the phone primarily to clarify issues, get answers to questions, or schedule an in-person meeting. Now, we need to resolve conflict, collaborate on projects, make decisions, and close deals. That means we need to get better at communicating in the virtual environment.
