My business relies entirely on virtual meetings. I use them to meet with my staff. And all of my client meetings are virtual too.
In the beginning, I wondered if virtual meetings would be as effective as meeting in person. I worried about losing the sense of immediacy and close connection that come from face-to-face interaction. I wondered if virtual meetings would inspire the kind of follow-through I expect from in-person meetings.
But in more than three years of virtual meetings, I’ve learned that not only do they work well, but in most cases, they are more efficient and more effective.
