We have all been part of virtual meetings that seem to be impersonal. We do get to see faces and hear voices but there is still a space between being in the same room and in the same Zoom.

It can help to begin your meetings with a personal touch. If we meet without connecting, then we are not building our teams up. Instead, we are slowly tearing them down by ignoring their humanity. As you start your next meeting, throw one of these trivia questions out to make that connection. Your team will start accessing the creative part of the brain immediately and may help to create a more productive meeting!
