How to Build Performance and Relationships
From the book... “When you conduct a meeting where, as workers say, their role is “to look at a PowerPoint and listen as [you] talk,” you show an unwillingness to share ownership of how the conversation unfolds. You imply inflexibility. That inflexibility suggests a reluctance to being influenced. If you are reluctant about being influenced, they see any contribution they might make as futile."“In her book, Making Virtual Work, Dr. Betty Johnson captures the thorn in many of our sides—video meetings—that have become all too common and too mundane. From the start of her section “Humans, not cameras, create the problems with video meetings,” and throughout her book, she provides strong evidence on how to get our virtual meetings unstuck.”
