Though connecting virtually is increasingly common, it is nonetheless challenging. Without in-person interactions and a sense of shared space, "meeting" has taken on an entirely new meaning: coming together online. This is why it is essential to learn new methods as a moderator.

Our coaches will help you meet the challenges of the digital world and create productive online meetings, from small team check-ins to industry conferences. We will show you how to solve conflicts with conscious communication, even at a distance. Our training covers collaborative online tools, project management software, online security, and preparation and follow-up for meetings. We can also lead sessions for you or help you during the organizational phase of large gatherings.

When thinking about improving one’s ability to organize and run meetings, typical questions that come up include:

  • How do I organize activities?
  • How do I make sure that I am well understood?
  • How can I let everyone have their say?
  • What rules can be applied so that only one person speaks at a time?
  • How can you resolve conflicts online with conscious communication?
  • What should I watch out for when setting up online appointments?
  • What crucial elements does an invitation to a meeting need to contain?
  • How do you make sure your meetings, files, and participant materials are secure?
  • What techniques apply especially for large meetings?
  • How do you agree on an agenda?
  • What are the most effective ways to start and end an online meeting?
  • How should one plan breaks?
  • What should one definitely avoid at online meetings?
  • How can I avoid misunderstandings during online meetings?
  • How do I avoid burnout or fatigue online?
  • What models exist to work collaboratively during a meeting?
  • How can I ask for feedback?

Clemens Lode

Hello! My name is Clemens and I am based in Düsseldorf, Germany. I’m an author of books on philosophy, science, and project management, and coach people to publish their books and improve their approach to leadership.

I like visiting the gym, learning to sing, observing animals, and creating videos on science and philosophy. I enjoy learning from nature and love the idea of optimizing systems.

In my youth, I was an active chess player reaching the national championship in Germany, and an active pen&paper player leading groups of adventurers on mental journeys. These activities align with my calm approach to moderating meetings, leading meetups, and focusing on details. My personality type in socionics is IEE/ENFp.
