- Competency (lack of virtual facilitation skills)
As a virtual leader, you need to acquire and implement just a few simple, yet impactful virtual facilitator techniques to widen your managerial skills and command your meeting technology. This course is taught by co-founder Allison St. John, who is also a professional virtual facilitator for Fortune 500 companies.
It's time to master virtual meetings, with video, so that you can shift your team meeting culture.
