What do you need to do to prepare for your calls on Zoom and screen time?

What do you need to do to prepare for your calls on Zoom and screen time?

At the very least, you should visit a mirror to see how you will look on screen. Secondly, you should take a look at the last recorded call to see how you perceive your contribution and behavior on screen. You might just be a bit mortified by it.

At the bare minimum, make sure your background serves the meeting outcomes well. Check the sounds levels – people do not need to see your eyes darting all over trying to find the tools that can be used for the call. Act interested; smile; react; congratulate; ask questions; contribute. You might also want to ask the meeting host if there are any housekeeping suggestions as the meeting starts. The host often has many other things on their mind and offering to help is always remembered and most often appreciated.

And finally, take notes. Many people think they can always go back and watch the recording. Trust me, most people do not have the time to go back and watch. With your notes, you can let people know from the call how you appreciate what they contributed. You will be clear on your responsibilities discussed during the call. Always get back to the host and ask if they need anything else. Follow up can be key to how you are perceived. Thanking people for their work ALWAYS feels good on both sides.
