Battling Zoom Fatigue
Advice for battling Zoom fatigue from business psychologist Stuart Duff, a partner at Pearn Kandola
Mr Duff says that companies should try to make video meetings less structured, and that more time should be built in for allowing informal chit-chat. When it does come down to formal meetings by video, he helps his clients to be more assertive.
From the same BBC article, advice from business psychologist Jess Baker:
“Being prepared enables you to feel more confident,” she says. “Prepare for each call as you would for a meeting with your manager [in person]. Then make eye contact with the camera and regardless of how many people are on the call, just imagine it’s just one person that you are speaking directly to. This may feel silly to you at first but your audience will be impressed.”
