Leading Effective Virtual Meetings

Fundamental skills for beginners  

This foundation-level virtual workshop provides participants with the skills and tools necessary to lead effective online meetings.

Learning Objectives

During the workshop, which takes place over 2 two-hour sessions, participants will work on a real-life upcoming meeting. Like all Turpin sessions, this one is interactive and provides experiential learning opportunities for all participants. While this workshop is highly tailored for each client and the virtual platform that they use, all participants will learn to

  • Engage meeting attendees in the conversation
  • Speak with confidence
  • Frame the meeting using a simple organizational strategy so that attendees understand the meeting’s (1) purpose, (2) direction, and (3) context
  • Create the conditions for a fruitful exchange of ideas and facilitate the interaction
  • Answer questions with confidence
  • Keep the meeting on track
  • Set appropriate next steps
  • Use virtual interactive tools and technology judiciously
  • Get the business of the meeting done effectively and efficiently

Getting Business Done & Growing Leadership Capability
Everything we do is designed to help people get business done and grow their capabilities. While a particular workshop may focus on a specific business goal—closing a deal, making a decision, learning something new, or gaining alignment—every workshop is designed to help the participants be more comfortable, effective, and confident communicators. When employees communicate more effectively, leadership capability increases, and careers advance. This brings positive results for your team and company.

Skill Reinforcement
Participants receive reusable job aids and reference materials to help them apply what they learn in class to the situations they face outside of it.

During the tailoring process, Turpin modifies the workshop to meet the specific needs of the business and each individual attending the training.

Intended For
This is a foundation-level workshop and is ideal for first-time managers. No experience leading virtual meetings is necessary and not everyone needs to be at the same level. Often a wide range of skills and experience provides the richest learning environment.
