5 Fatal Flaws of Virtual Meetings and How to Avoid Them
Fatal Flaw #1: You Don’t Have a Backup Plan
We all know how fickle technology can be, and virtual meetings rely far more heavily on technology than in-person meetings. If your technology fails during a virtual meeting, it can completely derail your meeting’s purpose and leave participants in a sour mood when the meeting runs longer than budgeted.
Though you can’t anticipate technical failure, you can have a backup plan. Before the meeting begins, let your participants know what Plan B is in the case of a technological blunder. That way, if things go south, everyone will know exactly what to do so the meeting can get back on track in no time.
