In today’s world we talk a lot about agility, a term which is becoming overused. When writing EVC last year I chose to use instead the term nimble. Being nimble as a virtual facilitator could mean:
- Having a back up plan just in case the platform you were going to use is switched last minute
- Being comfortable with change (as it will inevitably happen)
- Being flexible to adjust the game plan depending on the needs of the group
- Knowing your materials and having a big picture overview so you know what can be adjusted. If there were 2-3 things for people to take away from the call what would they be?
What are some other things that we can do to be nimble?
One of the most important things I find with my work is to really know my material (or the roadmap of elements), know the platform as much as I can, and be present for what the group wants. The more we can encourage engagement and interactivity the more it becomes the group’s/team’s call, which usually is a good thing.
Make a list of half a dozen things you can do to enhance your “nimble factor”.
