With vast portions of the professional world working from home, many of us are getting well acquainted with the video call. But such meetings can feel exhausting, INSEAD’s Gianpiero Petriglieri and Clemson University’s Marissa Shuffler explain to BBC Worklife. We may feel like we’re performing for an audience. There may be nagging delays or freezes that make natural interaction tough. And, in many cases, we can watch ourselves while talking to others. What might help? Propose non-video calls or other ways to collaborate, devote some meetings to non-work talk, and turn self-view off.
