Fostering Team Collaboration from a Distance

Online team meetings done right

Throughout this series of virtual workshops, participants apply the principles of The Orderly Conversation to their own real-life virtual team meetings.

Participants in this workshop about running better virtual team meetings will learn to

  • Engage meeting attendees in a comfortable, business-focused conversation
  • 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
  • Deliver content effectively in the virtual space
  • Address questions, concerns, and pushback with confidence
  • Manage disengaged, emotional, and hostile attendees
  • Keep the meeting on track
  • Encourage participation while controlling the process
  • Use webinar tools and technology judiciously, including video, for maximum engagement
  • Close the meeting, set appropriate next steps, and assign responsibilities
  • Get the business of the meeting done effectively and efficiently

Additional Post-Workshop Skill-Reinforcement Option

In addition to the skill-reinforcement resources included in eCoach, consider this option:

Manager Support Program: Managers play a critical role in helping employees apply what they learn in class to the situations they face outside of it. To help managers support the learning, and when appropriate to do so, we provide guidance for setting expectations prior to the workshop and providing support after.

Communication Training Yields Business Results

We believe that business communication training must focus on business results: making work easier, employees more successful, workplaces more cooperative, and goals more attainable.

Getting Business Done and 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 to your team and company.

Workshop Tailoring

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

Blended Learning

We believe in a blended learning approach. eCoach is how we do it.
