I attended an online forum of leaders this week and it was really impressive to see how energetic and driven the main facilitator was.
During the 1-hour session we adhered to a tight agenda and managed to get through it all in the allocated time. I left the session thinking about how tough it can be to generate that energy online and also read the energy in the room when online.
When I facilitate I often start an online session quite gently and then try to build the energy as the session progresses and when training face to face I usually go in with all guns blazing to lift it from the start. Maintaining the energy and moderating it appropriately in sessions online is not an easy thing to do!
How are you tapping into the energy of online sessions?
