Remote working of course has its hurdles and I still believe that today nothing totally replaces being in-person with others. That said, it has countless advantages and because of technology, it can be just as productive as being together.
Video conferencing is a savior but can be a big time suck / distraction. That said, even in-person meetings can and usually are the same. So, the same rules apply for video meetings. Say hello, then keep them short and focused. Agendas help. Set the meeting for half as long as you think you’ll need.
Our team also tries to book an hour every couple of days to open our video conferencing and work together while on mute. People can ask questions as they have them or the call can be silent the whole time. Just nice to replicate the feeling of being together, without having it open all day & being too wasteful on bandwidth. It works for us, but it might not work for everyone.
