How to run a better virtual meeting

Have you heard of Parkinson’s Law? Parkinson's idea is that work expands to fill the time available for its completion. Essentially, if you give someone a week to complete a two-hour task, it will end up taking a week to complete the task.

This idea is worth thinking about in your online meetings. If you schedule a video conference call to last an hour to discuss something that could be agreed in half the time, the likelihood is that you will still take the full hour to discuss it.

We all feel energised after an effective meeting, so keep your team productivity high by running better meetings. Schedule meetings that match the topics you need to cover, no longer. Start with a clear agenda and finish with action points for attendees.
