Business as Unusual? Eighteen Observations on eDiscovery Business Confidence in the Summer of 2020
Two things that I want to say about this:
1. Getting there early is an opportunity to have small talk, and maybe even a laugh or two, something the we are all lacking in the work from home world, and which science is now telling us is making us feel more alone, even as we sit on video conferences on and off all day long. When we go from call to call talking business only and getting off as quickly as possible, that is Zoom fatigue. If you have a few laughs together? Totally different.
2. Also, don’t sleep on being the one to send the follow up notes, and meeting wrap ups. Yeah it’s a pain, it means you have to take notes and pay attention. You know what else it means? When the next meeting starts, you are now the keeper of the notes, and probably running the meeting to kick it off. Now you don’t have to find a way to interject politely, you have the floor. Additionally, if you are running the meeting, be aware of who is talking, and who isn’t. Who looks like they want to say something, and isn’t getting a chance. Don’t setup your screen to show you the large image of who is talking and small screens of everyone else. That only drags your attention away from the group, and the people not talking. Don’t leave them behind.
