Stanford researchers have found that virtual meetings cause women more “Zoom fatigue” than their male counterparts.
Here are some strategies for decreasing Zoom Fatigue: Change your default display settings to turn off your camera and replace the still image with your professional headshot. Adjust your settings to log in as “audio-only.”Plan your calendar with “no virtual meeting days” to get a break or make a request through your organization.
Determine if a video meeting is necessary or if a standard call will suffice. Cap the amount of time to be on video calls per day or suggest guidelines for your organization to implement. Block out your calendar for mandatory breaks in between meetings to stretch, walk around or get outside.
Avoid distractions and multitasking by staying present. Don’t keep your email inbox open, close internet tabs and don’t engage in private chats to keep your focus. Take theStanford ZEF scale(or send it to your employees to take) to measure their fatigue and offer alternative options to help reduce it. headtopics.com
