Coaching Support for Organizing Virtual Work and Facilitating Virtual Meetings
In response to the coronavirus, organizations are shifting the way they work. It means more staff and volunteers are working remotely, and more meetings are taking place via conference calls or through online platforms such as Zoom or Skype. In response, ICL is offering leaders four hours of coaching time to help you navigate and implement changes related to virtual work and meetings, to support and guide staff, and to support you in working as effectively and as efficiently as possible.
Coaching session topics will be driven by your needs and action oriented. They may include such things as:
- Organizing virtual work and how to keep staff in touch with you and with each other
- Tips for facilitating virtual meetings
- Developing agendas for online meetings that support shared understanding, agreement, and commitment
- Identifying strategies for working collaboratively on long-term projects (internally or with partners) including using Basecamp and other tools
- Developing virtual educational programming to stay connected with members, volunteers, constituents, and visitors
- Being supportive and minimizing stress that staff may be experiencing as a result of changes
