Recently, I had one of my newsletter subscribers, Sahar, reach out with a question:
'Hi Lorri, what is the best approach to participating in a conference call especially if they're too many participants on the call and all (most) want to weigh in their opinion?"
Thank you, Sahar, for your question! It’s a challenge I too have seen many times in my career, and have experienced first hand the example of an unwieldy teleconference call.
Mastering the art of the teleconference is particularly important if we are going to support a 'work from anywhere' policy at work. Teleconferences are a pillar of communications for distributed teams so it is absolutely essential that we get really good at them!
