Virtual co-working sessions may range from one-hour sprints, to four-hour blocks to full day sessions.
Three considerations to making a virtual co-working session work include the following:
- A platform where you can all meet, see each other and converse for periods of time.
- Focus – collectively and individually. Consider these questions
- What’s bringing you together today?
- What’s the focus – is it to do something collectively or individually?
- What outcomes do you want?
- How do you want to break it down – meeting every hour for check ins? Meeting more frequently?
- Scheduled Checkpoints - A way to share and keep the momentum going throughout the day. I have found that virtual group and team sessions have been the seeds for some amazing new ideas and cross-pollination. Be sure to build in blocks where people are not only checking in around what they are doing, but also consider the value of building in some time for sharing of learning or insights.
- One-hour virtual sprints for planning on the team or individual level
- 30-minute brainstorming/innovation sessions geared to create new product and or service ideas
- Four-hour Get it Done sessions where groups of solopreneurs connect virtually to take focused action once a month on things on their list. Check ins are once an hour.
- Four to eight-hour Virtual Retreats, where each hour has a dedicated focus and theme to explore and/take action on. For example, an hour dedicated to creating a business plan, an hour to marketing approaches, an hour for project work).
