Digital Tools: Tool the F up by identifying the right tool to conduct team events from all the digital tools available.
Ensure upfront that all participants have access and understand how to use each tool.
Setting aside time to build team tool literacy will increase session efficiency and effectiveness.
Remote Team Alliance: Establish the working agreement and environment for the team.
Address the basic rules of remote events such as the use of digital tools to facilitate the event. Otherwise, agree on the rules of the event at the beginning of the session.
Understand the power imbalance created by hybrid remote/onsite events. Hybrid remote/onsite events are not recommended, go fully remote instead.
Facilitation: Keep events short, sharp and on point.
Create a clear agenda, reduce the session length to no more than 2-hours and promote asynchronous options to contain audience numbers.
Include frequent breaks and activities that re-engage participants.
