The good news is there are a few simple actions you can take to create meeting expectations for your entire team, as well as to hold them accountable to deliver on those expectations.

For this course you will work with your team to create a set of meeting expectations that will apply to any meeting happening within your team. In addition, you will learn to implement a simple method that builds accountability for performing those expectations.

  • Understand why web-based meetings are sometimes painful and ineffective

Planning a Virtual Meeting

While there are a number of components required for successful meetings, planning in advance is definitely one of the most critical. Getting clear on why you™re meeting, knowing what you want to accomplish, and selecting the web meeting tools you wi™ll use, are all essential planning components that will impact your ability to facilitate a successful meeting.

Therefore, when you take the time to plan your meeting and share a detailed agenda with participants, you wi™ll find your meetings are more effective, efficient and engaging for everyone involved.

For this course, you will build your capability to plan for meetings and create a meaningful agenda. As a result, everyone will know what to expect and what to prepare for before the meeting even begins.

By completing this course, you will:

  • Know what is required to lead successful virtual meetings

Leading a Virtual Meeting

There is a difference between running and leading a meeting. People who œrun meetings tend to focus on individual agenda items and be more concerned about keeping track of time, and it™s not uncommon for them to look to others to help guide the group along. As a result, these meetings tend to get off track, not be engaging, and experience various levels of participation and diminished quality.

On the other hand, when a person moves from running a meeting to œleading a meeting, a whole new experience is created. When a person decides to take control and lead a meeting, participants are prepared for the meeting, are actively engaged, and as a result contribute at a higher level. When meetings are led versus œrun they stay on track and things get done.

For this course you will work on building your skills to lead effective and productive virtual meetings. By using a simple process you can be sure you are doing the right things to increase collaboration and participation, while making sure great work gets done.

By completing this course, you will:

  • Have the skills required to lead successful virtual meetings

Subject Matter Expert

Vado offers 350+ employee soft skill and management development e-learning courses that is “changing the face of learning” with course design that includes the following elements:

Development Happens on the Job. Research shows that 70% of development happens on the job, and Vado is the only off the shelf e-learning courseware provider that helps the learner apply on the job through step by step instructions.

Chucked Learning. Some call it granular, others call it chunked, microlearning or learning bursts . They mean the same thing – learners want short learning courses. Study after study shows that taking in information in small bite sized chunks leads to increased learner retention. The market has been recognizing this trend toward shorter and shorter learning courses and have shortened e-learning courses from 4 hours to 1 hour to 30 minutes. Our learning content takes this trend to the next step to meet the demands of learners.

Video. In their personal life, employees learn new information by watching videos and they have come to expect that on the job. All of Vado’s courses start with a short instructional video. And the videos are in high definition for a better learner experience.

Optimized for the mobile learner. Mobile means two things: technology and the learner experience. Vado’s learning content is optimized for both meanings. From a technology standpoint, all 300+ courses are viewable from all hand held devices. From a learner experience perspective, small bite sized videos fit the mobile learners’ requirement of not having to complete long courses on their hand held device.
