Our next live Civil Engineering Collective training session will focus on maximizing engagement and effectiveness through virtual interactions. Something that must be top of mind for all professionals today, especially those in the civil engineering world, who work on complex projects with many moving parts.
Let’s be honest, we’re not getting away from remote work any time soon, and most likely, we’ll never go back to as much office time as we used to have pre-COVID-19. With most great teams, when the rules of the game change, they adjust and continue in their winning ways. One way that your team members can adjust is to become superstars in terms of their virtual work productivity.
One of the biggest areas for improvement in this arena is virtual meeting productivity. I’ve been involved in many virtual meetings over the past six months, and it is clear to me that the person leading the meeting has the most impact on the productivity of that meeting. More specifically, their preparation prior to the meeting, which I believe has the most impact on meeting productivity.
