Putting face-to-face meetings one-on-one into online formats leads to overexertion and boredom. But there are enough possibilities to make virtual meetings interactive and lively. Some of them do not even require the use of additional tools, such as Miro - the interactive board with its countless visualization options. A variety of activation tasks can be used in between, such as face gymnastics or to “dance the alphabet”. Additionally, presentations can easily be made more appealing without much effort, by using tangible objects and different visualization options. Simple queries with covered cameras, which are revealed in case of a positive answer, or the comment function, which allow interactions on split screens, or splitting larger groups in small break-out groups are just ta view of countless options. Further examples for energizers can be found here.

We use a number of different formats in our online settings in order to make meetings varied and active and are always open to new ideas and developments.

The corona pandemic has changed a lot in our everyday work. We work from home and sit in front of the computer many hours a day. We have found new formats to successfully implement workshops and meetings in online settings (more on this in another blog post). Despite all the helpful tools such as ZOOM and Miro, it is still challenging to design creative processes in the virtual space as successfully as face to face. For some tasks it is essential that people come together, see each other, and can informally exchange ideas during breaks. In addition, as is well known, exercise - especially walking - helps to promote creativity.

So why not move joint work processes outside? Why not combine walks or even hikes together of a team with workshop tasks? Fresh air is good for our brain performance and enables safe cooperation in pandemic times and exercise helps us and our teams to find creative, innovative and solution-oriented ideas.

The guest is the king. As in the guest house, so also in the meeting room or conference room. So we try to make it as pleasant as possible for our guests and to support them even better in their process of working out their goals. Sure, a nice room, maybe flowers, good air, pleasant atmosphere, comfortable seating. But there is more! You should also feel welcome and in good hands and not feel uneasy from uncomfortable or difficult questions. Or even being entrusted with complicated tasks before you have really gotten to know the others in the room. The art of good hosting is not that easy, especially when we have limited time and are supposed to achieve a certain goal.

So that our guests still feel comfortable and are happy to contribute, it takes more than a good concept and a nice room. Above all, you need an appreciative attitude, respectful interaction and openness to new things, such as in a good conversation or an invitation.
