Here’s a news flash. It is absolutely critical to keep your virtual team meetings productive. Conference calls are indispensable for managing virtual teams and moving complex projects along.

Use these guiding questions as you plan your next virtual team meeting:

  • Is the facilitator (and that could be you) able to keep things moving? Do you have a few prepared ice breakers and readily available examples of virtual team games to engage your remote team?
  • What are the Context Communication best practices you plan to implement during this meeting?
  • Do you have a virtual team meeting agenda – and was it distributed?
  • Do ground rules structured in terms of priority exist and does the entire team know them?

Consider these questions to facilitate your meeting:

  • What is your Team Code etiquette for running this virtual team meeting effectively?
  • What are the kinds of questions that new team members participating in their first call might have such as the history of ongoing conversation, individuals responsible for and having knowledge about certain agenda items and team specific shorthand or acronyms?
  • Do we have the right technology to keep our meetings running smoothly? And, are team members trained appropriately?
  • How do we handle Silent Riders? They are team members who don’t participate, due to language issues or lack of engagement.
  • What’s the best way to debrief and evaluate the meeting?
  • How do we ensure best practices and greatest ideas are incorporated before the next call?

It is up to you the virtual team meeting facilitator to create the best agenda and context for meeting attendees to connect the dots to the bigger picture and drive your team’s success.
