Setup - Do you have good audio conferencing?
Whilst working remotely it is good practice to ensure you have a decent setup to have effective remote meetings. This includes:
- Good Microphone
- Conferencing software like Teams, Zoom or Skype
It is always better to have complicated discussions over a call rather than just using instant messaging.
It is also good to use your camera so that people can see your body language to better aid in gauging your feelings on a particular topic.
Other good practices are to use headphones and to keep your microphone on mute when not speaking .
Also don't forget this is also important for mental health, maintaining regular communication with your friends and colleagues.
