LEADING ENGAGING VIRTUAL MEETINGS:
an online course for leaders, facilitator, and trainers

REGISTRATION IS OPEN FOR THE SEPTEMBER 2020 COHORT!

Lame virtual meetings were acceptable when we were first grounded by COVID.  Now that we are getting used to virtual meetings, it’s time to make them amazing.

Meetings are critical to collaborative work. Meetings are where teams define new problems, explore new approaches, brainstorm ideas, and share creative insights to real problems. At least, that’s what happens in effective meetings.

Ineffective meetings are plagued by distracted participants and disengaged team members. They are boring, pointless, and no one wants to be there.

As a leader, you need to be able to facilitate effective, engaging online meetings. There are critical differences to facilitating online versus in person.

In this course, you will learn how to lead effective, engaging online meetings that result in engaged employees, real problems being solved, and meaningful interactions between participants.

Who

Leading Engaging Virtual Meetings is for executives, team leaders, managers, facilitators, and trainers. The course is for anyone who facilitates online meetings and wants to become more comfortable and improve their results.

You’ll learn how to:

  • Use technology to your advantage
  • Design engaging meetings that get results
  • Delivery with ease so it feels (almost) like you are in-person

What’s Included (in all levels)

  • Instructional videos focused on foundational aspects of effective online meetings
  • Self-paced lessons spread out over 4 weeks (with 6 months additional access). Watch anytime you want.
  • Three live, interactive sessions with your instructor, Dr. Amy Climer (recordings provided)
  • Private forum with other participants – a place to ask questions and share ideas and insights. 
  • Support from the learning community
  • Immediate application to the meetings you are leading

Optional (in the Plus or Premium Levels)

  • 30 minute tech session: work with Amy to get everything just right. Help with lighting options, audio settings, adding the external monitor, etc.

Amy Climer is one of the best professionals we’ve had the opportunity to work with. She recently facilitated a webinar on managing change for our Graduate Student Leadership Institute. Amy was diligent in preparing: from asking great questions about all aspects of the presentation (right down to the layout of the room) to exploring ways to make sure the webinar was engaging. Her delivery was phenomenal and provided a seamless learning experience for all participants. Students remarked that the presentation was thorough while remaining accessible and provided them with actionable takeaways. Amy really set the bar for what we’ve come to expect from webinars. She continues to be the gold standard for us and we look forward to continuing to work with her.

VIRTUAL MEETING MENTORING

Do you want direct feedback on a virtual meeting or presentation? Amy will give you direct feedback on your content, delivery, and engagement. She will offer specific advice and ideas to help you design, develop, and deliver an engaging meeting, webinar, or other online learning session. This can be for you or your entire team.

Working with Amy on our organization’s online presence has been a game-changer. She is a consummate coach and teacher who has brought our team’s skill set, confidence and professionalism to a whole other level. She is the Gandalf of leadership development in this new frontier of online facilitation! She is a jewel!

How it Works

Once you purchase the session, Amy will send you a link to her calendar. You can select a time that works for you and a Zoom link will automatically be created. If you’d prefer to use another platform (e.g. WebEx, MS Teams) just let Amy know.

During the session, you present a portion of your program and Amy will share what’s working well, areas to refine, and ideas to increase engagement. The session can be recorded so you don’t have to worry about taking notes.

You are welcome to purchase additional sessions, if needed.
