The Explainer: Running Effective Remote Meetings

Remote meetings have different challenges than in-person ones. New Explainers on Tuesday — Subscribe now: https://www.youtube.com/user/HarvardBusiness See also: The Explainer: Balancing Execution and Adaptation: https://youtu.be/M1kSIerx-Fg Why do remote teams demand new collaboration skills? What’s missing from our texts, emails, conference calls, and other digital communications? Body language. Even when we’re co-located, the tone of a text or the formality of an email is left wide open to interpretation, to the point that even our closest friends get confused. These misinterpretations create an anxiety that can become costly, affecting morale, engagement, productivity, and innovation. Remote communication can distort the normal pace of our conversations. The delay between our messages can often postpone or hide emotional reactions to our comments. Lacking an immediate response, we can become distracted, second-guess ourselves, or even grow frustrated with our teams. To perform at the highest levels, remote teams have to find new and better ways to operate. ——————————————————————— At Harvard Business Review, we believe in management.
