Quarantine emotional-outreach update: at the end of most zoom/teams/webex calls— when Ive been seeing peoples faces and smiling and having a nice enough time—I have to fight the urge to say “I miss you” or even “I love you” as Im signing off. (Not clients, just work people, but that’s bad enough)
Is it just me or have you also noticed that during the endless back to back zoom/teams meetings, people drift away and not take down action points?
Why are companies switching from Skype to Teams or Zoom? Educate me pls I don’t understand.
Any of your firms do virtual gifts or corporate appreciation for your teams? We want to do something for our hard working team that is spread out over the nation but not make it an event where we’re stuck doing over zoom. Ideally something like wine delivery just to show appreciation
Some context: I just joined a new firm and new project within the past couple weeks but have a week of PTO planned for next week. A coworker was sharing screen over Zoom with me yesterday and I inadvertently saw his open Teams chat with my manager. In the Teams chat I could see not great things being said about me getting stuck on problems at work and already being in a PTO state of mind. Do you think it’s worth bringing up to manager as someone that’s legitimately trying their best to ramp
Just wanted to take everyone’s “temperature.” How are your teams forecasting the demand for travel when this is done? Are clients saying they’re fine with zoom now? Or are partners going to...
What tools/platforms mare you using for your virtual instructor-led classes? Any dedicated to vILT platforms beyond zoom/teams and the other usual suspects?
I'm looking for Bluetooth wireless headset for taking zoom, teams call which has great noise cancellation features (voice) and is compatible with laptop without any USB dongle. Have gone through so many reviews, but didn't help. What are you using folks?
How many different video conferencing apps do you have ? Zoom, Skype, ring central, google meet, Microsoft teams, slack, gotomeeting, Amazon chime is what I have so far. I don’t want any more 😩
I have major Teams/Zoom fatigue — I’m an extrovert but can’t stand being on calls anymore. It’s to the point where I feel absolutely miserable every time I’m in a meeting… I find myself always impatiently counting down the clock and being so checked out during the conversations. Anyone else experiencing this? I know meetings are a necessary evil, and I need to work to survive… so I need to overcome this. But I’m at a total loss.
Is there a tool I can use to record and transcribe meeting/calls (google meet, zoom, teams)?
Does anyone have tips, tricks or words of advice for facilitating an effective & engaging creative review meetings? I’m a Creative Account Manager at an in house agency. Zoom creative reviews with our clients will start next week. My participation is ensuring creatives on, setting up the meeting and then creative presenting their work (fairly straightforward). Do you meet with your creative teams before the presentation? What are some core “dos and donts “?
Is your Microsoft Teams/Zoom Etiquette slipping? We’ve all been working in our sweats and leggings for almost a year - have you changed how you attend and/or lead meetings with your team?
Now that we all have live chats going during Zoom/Teams client presentations, presenting has become a horrible improv game of trying to casually incorporate the things everyone is typing in chat.
5wks pregnant and wondering — when did people tell their teams they were pregnant? I’m mindful that we’re “always on” during COVID, and I’m thinking about dr appts and what to do if/when morning sickness shows up, since I’m on zoom ~6hrs/day... but it’s also so painfully early. Would love to hear how other moms have handled! Did this allow you to create better boundaries for things like protecting your sleep and stress?
Does Adobe Connect give you the option to have a background image when you have your camera on—like Teams and Zoom?
Hi everyone! I realised my linkedin profile is super bland, this has mainly happened as my role kept evolving so much that I've now lost track of how to capture the information well and come under the radar of headhunters or sourcers. Anyone who is great with wording and knows how to build a linkedin profile, willing to help please DM. We can set up teams or zoom call and amend capture a great or atleast reasonably better looking linkedin profile with some headhunters success rate. ;)
Regular tips and strategies to keep meeting facilitation fresh? I host a lot of meetings every week with my teams and I’d love a way to keep up on new ways to engage people (mostly over zoom). Any great orgs or circles that share this kind of content?

What’s the correlation between compensation & happiness? I have never been a very happy person (depressed from time to time) and my comp is only 150k. What compensation do I need to reach so that I can become immediately happy? 200k, 300k, 500k?
+500k homeless ppl in the US, yet ppl care more about refugees from other countries being admitted to the system to receive US govt assistance. Why aren't we this passionate about our own citizens?
Best life lesson I learned from Deloitte: don’t ever, EVER sign a contract that demands you return the sign on bonus if you leave within a year. I thought to myself, “I would never leave a company within a year”, but I grossly underestimated how much I could hate a job.
What time do you fish: A) wake up for Monday morning flights B) depart C) arrive at client site ?

Without saying your age, what is something you remember from your childhood that a younger person would not understand?
