Leading Online-Meetings and Web-Conferences as a Discussion Leader 

New! Facilitate Online Meetings Professionally

The virtual meeting has become an integral part of our daily work. New techniques and skills are required from team and project leaders in order to lead and facilitate virtual meetings professionally. Teams must learn to exchange ideas in web conferences in a goal-oriented manner and to achieve sustainable results.
Online meetings follow different rules and require different approaches than face-to-face (F2F) meetings. Learning by doing is possible, but is not optimal. If virtual work meetings are poorly facilitated and unproductive, employees will participate disinterestedly and unfocused, or remain isolated and demotivated. The impact on employee motivation and the success of a meeting is immense.
You will learn:

  • Practical tools for interactive motivational online meetings for national and international working groups, so that colleagues and business partners actively participate and every meeting adds value to the collaboration.
  • Participants can try out and apply various techniques and methods in a protected space. Leaders and professionals will move with greater confidence in the virtual space and create more lively meetings, making more effective use of online time.
