More teams than ever before are working virtually, but this makes it harder for members to feel connect as a team. The fun, simple activities in this book are great icebreakers for team meetings and can be used for team building and trust building for any virtual collaboration. Your team can use Zoom, Microsoft Teams, or any video conferencing system, and the book explains the technical basics of virtual meetings, such as, audio, mic, speaker, and video camera capabilities, bandwidth, lighting, setting, and more. In addition, to the activities, the book teaches pivotal virtual team engagement tools such as The Participant Map, which helps leaders gauge interaction in real-time and ensure that all members are participating. Finally, the book will guide you through a debrief of your virtual team meeting and guide you thought a plan for improving future sessions.
