If you lead a team that typically meets face-to-face, you likely have norms for how folks act. For example, are folks expected to show up on time? Do people work on email and texting during the meeting, or do they stay engaged? Work to continue these norms online.
With a few groups we’re part of, we’ve noticed that nobody engages in “chit chat” before the meeting starts. We’d rarely see that in a face-to-face meeting with friendly colleagues. As a meeting leader, you can model behaviors like this that you’d like to see.
We’ve developed some checklists for fostering a healthy online culture and specific practices for leaders.
