Course description

Facilitating Inclusive Hybrid Meetings

Facilitating Inclusive Hybrid Meetings

As the future of work is rapidly changing, so too is the future of meetings. As companies embrace hybrid and remote models of working, collaborating with some meeting participants ‘in the room’ while others join remotely is becoming far more common.

But the fact is, hybrid or blended meetings are much harder to run than ‘all in the room’ or ‘all-remote’ meetings. Post-pandemic, it is clearly no longer acceptable to lead a meeting focused primarily on the in-room participants while the remote participants ‘suffer through’, hoping they have the opportunity to be heard.

With facilitation skills now considered a fundamental leadership competency, this half day workshop was designed to provide skills, tools and practice needed to lead equitable, inclusive hybrid meetings.

Fully engage the whole group

Even if the trainer is facilitating the session virtually, he was able to fully engage the whole group, both in-person and remote participants.
