Leading Effective Virtual Meetings


Our Leading Effective Virtual Meetings virtual workshops provide professionals with the skills needed for today’s remote work environment.

Leaders and managers often find themselves involved in meetings full of tangents and disagreements that derail productivity. When those meetings take place virtually – by videoconference or by telephone – the ability to maintain focus, engagement, and cohesion among participants is challenged even more.

Our Leading Effective Virtual Meetings workshop is the solution.

In this virtual session, your participants learn skills for keeping folks engaged, reconciling divergent ideas and opinions among attendees, and helping ensuring the time spent together is productive. They also consider the benefits and challenges associated with the latest technological platforms, as well as the advantages that video and telephone each offer.

Participants engage in a variety of fun, yet practical exercises and case-studies, including role-play simulations that capture the challenges they face in their professional roles.

Like all of our virtual workshops, your Leading Effective Virtual Meetings workshop will be customized to meet the specific challenges faced by your organization and your staff. Our virtual workshops are hands-on and combine theory with practice, using a mixture of lecture and exercises to drive the learning.

The Practitioner Advantage


Each member of the Consensus team has more than fifteen years of field experience, working on behalf of clients as their negotiators and mediators. As practitioners, we routinely test and apply cutting edge strategies and theories as part of our various client situations, ranging from hostage situations to billion-dollar business transactions to political standoffs.

Accordingly, we are highly informed about the strengths inherent to different approaches and frameworks, and how various theoretical concepts would or would not apply to your contexts. Our practitioner experience translates into more concrete advice based on firsthand experience, a true understanding of how theories play out in the real world (and when popular ideas would fall short), and an ability to relate to professionals at all levels of seniority – including members of your C-suite.
