Preparing to Manage an Online Meeting


Thursday, May 7, 2020, 6:00pm to 7:30pm


Online via Zoom

According to The Muse, we spend a lot of time in meetings: middle managers spend about 35% of their time in meetings, and upper management can spend up to 50%. Time is money, so meetings should be well planned. In part 1 of this 3-part series, Jill Slye, instructor at Harvard University Extension School, will discuss how to define a meeting's objectives to learn if a meeting is necessary, and establishing meeting structure. This includes:

  • How to structure the meeting

  • How to set the tone and culture

  • How to set ground rules and expectations for technology

Please note: Participants must be able to connect to the workshop with video and audio using Zoom. This workshop provides no technical training. We highly recommend you take the Introduction to Zoom workshop with the Harvard Ed Portal as a pre-requisite.
