Impactful Online Meetings

Join us for tips on making your online meetings impactful, as Emil Kresl from UT Austin shares concepts to ensure rewarding and productive virtual meetings.

Working remotely can be logistically and psychologically difficult. Virtual meetings seem to be taking an especially heavy toll. There are, however, ways to use the virtual environment to our professional advantage. During this event you will learn the value of three principles for virtual meetings:

o Explicit expectations and intentions

o Creating a structure for engagement

o Accommodating participants

The intended outcome of this event is to provide participants with the concepts to help ensure that virtual meetings are rewarding and productive.
