E-BOOK: Meeting Cookbook
Our way of meeting has changed. The world has grown and become smaller: a quick meeting with the salespeople in Shanghai and then a brainstorming meeting with the research department in Skövde.
Teams and Zoom have made digitization real and in the book you will learn how to make the most of the new opportunities. When is a digital meeting best, when is it better to have a physical meeting and in which cases are hybrid meetings preferable? But when technology no longer stands in the way, other challenges become all the more apparent. And suddenly cultural differences can have consequences. Because what happens when we have different ideas about what is right. How do we actually see hierarchy? When is it ok to interrupt someone else? And when can you say exactly what you really think?
