The article, How to Combat Virtual Meeting Fatigue (MIT Sloan Management Review, 30 Mar 2021) asks what exactly makes virtual meetings so draining, and what can leaders do to improve them. It concludes
“There is no one-size-fits-all approach to reducing virtual meeting fatigue or to eliminating “bad” meetings. Be willing to adapt and grow. Experiment with different meeting strategies or platforms. Adjust as needs change or evolve. Rely on meeting best practices and develop a tailored response to make sure your next virtual meeting energizes rather than drains. While navigating a paradox of sometimes contradictory preferences, leaders can still make a difference. Find out what matters to your people and then deliver.“
