4 ways brokers can hold better virtual meetings
04/28/2015 | Author: Editorial Staff
If you’ve got busy agents all over the place, you may not be meeting with them as often as you’d like. Virtual meeting tools make it easy to stay in touch, but you know everyone multitasks during online meetings. Keep people’s attention with these four tips.
Send an agenda before the meeting. Build in time for updates and designate who should provide them. Leave time open to ask questions, but don’t make it a point to discuss each item in depth.
Use video as much as you can. It might take more legwork, but being able to see faces will result in fewer multitaskers and more attention on the meeting. Free tools like Google Hangouts and Skype work on multiple devices.
Create interaction between attendees. Get everyone involved in the meeting early with quick discussion prompts. For example, ask everyone to share one thing they learned from their last transaction in 30 seconds or less. (And don’t forget to add it to the agenda so people can prepare beforehand.)
Do more to discourage multitasking. Call on individuals throughout the meeting, or give people specific tasks, such as note taking.
