#036 - Meeting Madness: The Organizational and People Impact of Meeting Overload (with Lauren Sergy)
It’s been 28 months of virtual and hybrid meetings, and for many companies, not much has changed. We attend more meetings than ever, yet aside from the convenience, few people rave about the quality of virtual meetings.
But it doesn’t have to be this way!
In this episode of The Working Well Podcast, I’m joined by communication expert Lauren Sergy to look at how virtual and hybrid meetings impact our energy, relationships, and ability to communicate well in the workplace.
We touch on everything from the neuroscience of video conferencing, to the responsibilities of leaders and organizations in shaping communications in this new world of virtual and hybrid work. Of course, all of this comes back to impact the overall wellbeing and performance of people and teams.
