A few virtual tips and best practices…
Is there really such a thing as virtual etiquette? If not, professional norms should exist for every virtual meeting, event, class, etc. Here are a few virtual tips and best practices to be mindful of the next to you go virtual:
Avoid typing while in attendance or at least silence your keyboard.
Always dress for the unexpected. You never know whether you will have to appear on camera.
Avoid having distracting or location photos and/or objects in the background.
Only unmute when asked or when required.
Speak clearly and at an appropriate volume.
Try not to eat during your gatherings, especially when your camera is on.
Try to stay seated and attentive, unless absolutely necessary. You never know when you will be called upon to give input or answer a question.
