Got a virtual meeting in your future? Build accountability and collaboration by having each person come off mute, say their name and answer an icebreaker question.
Might sound like this: "Let’s go around the room and introduce ourselves. I will call on you in alphabetical order, then you can announce yourself and share with us where you are today and what color socks you are wearing.”
Then use the participant list and call on each person by name, let them speak, then call on the next person.
Tip: Giving each person the chance to speak and add some of their own personality (i.e. sock color, last show they binged, favorite thing about where they’re calling in from) will engage them right away and set the tone for a collaborative meeting.
Smile, Breathe, and Meet on. You got this!
