Are you missing those creative and unplanned moments of inspiration and creativity -- the things you can't plan for?

Are you longing for the magic of human interaction and collaboration?

Are you fatigued with zoom calls and just can't stand the thought of one more dreaded zoom meeting?

In this day of living on zoom all day long there are some common mistakes made, like:

- Assuming your team members will build trust on their own over time or that remote work cannot be as 'connective' as being in the room together
- Hosting remote team meetings as "walk-ons" with little or no preparation
- Jumping right into the work of a meeting without setting the stage for success first
- Interpreting silence as agreement and agreement as decision-making
- Assuming that because the technology works for you, it's working for everyone else
- You may be making these mistakes without even realizing it.
- Facilitating virtual meetings is more than sharing your screen. It takes real skill and practice.

It is possible to feel connected, collaborative and engaged…and be online!

Join me for an exploration of the key's to facilitating virtually and how to create connection, meaningful collaboration and even – unplanned magic!

We will cover the following ways to lead your remote team more effectively:
- The five cornerstones of the mindset of facilitation
- The two, most important actions, that will change the nature of your online collaboration
- How to build connection and trust virtually
