The big theme this week has been on ‘Zoom fatigue’.
It’s rather unfair to point the finger at Zoom - obviously all video hosting platforms are involved!
We have seen a massive increase of use of these tools in this digital space to help us stay connected and collaborative in our work and personal lives. But they are draining us of energy and many of us are feeling their burden rather than benefit.
There is some interesting data around how we misinterpret others on these types of calls. And we face frustrations when the technology doesn’t work perfectly.
However, we desperately need these solutions to keep us connected and our economy turning. Learning to limit your use of these devices is one solution. This group however, have created a silent Zoom retreat - which puts an interesting spin on something that would normally be full of noise.
