Kick ideas into action on a web conference

web conferencing for business

There’s a big project on the docket.

Trouble is, everyone works at home, or in satellite offices around the world. What’s a great way to get everyone together and go over the brief and start planning?

Web conferencing.

An at-the-ready web conferencing platform like OnConference Presents! lets you bring everyone together in one virtual “room.” Your telecommuters and team members in off-site locations can come together and participate in planning sessions and other critical meetings, avoiding the costs of paying everyone to travel to a central location.

They also get to return to their work stations right after the meeting, preventing further disruption in their work flow and productivity.

Get to work

Once you have everyone online and ready to go, it’s time to start brainstorming. You want to hear as many ideas as you can.

Ideas lead to innovation, and innovation leads to business success.

Here’s how to encourage everyone to offer input:

1. Ask.

Boy, that sounds simple, doesn’t it? It is. Too often, we get lost in the presentation we want to make, delivering the points in the brief and neglecting to let our team members show us the way.

A question like “does anyone have thoughts on how to approach this?” might spur your group into offering a plan of attack.

2. Target your experts

You hired your staff for a reason: they know what they’re doing and they’re talented. Unleash them and their ideas by asking them specifically for their thoughts.

When you come to a point where someone has a particular specialty, single him out and give him the floor. He may not only have some thoughts, but you are also giving him a quiet praise for his efforts and ability.

3. Go back in time

Try bringing up similar projects your team has completed and allow them to critique the plan, the process and the results. You may find they come up with ways to improve and streamline this next project.

4. Use the poll feature

You may have a shy voice or two on your team. Those individuals are a little hesitant to add their voice but they have ways to share their input.
