ADSCI Announces a Proprietary Way to Make Virtual Meetings More Intellectually Intimate, More Personally Connecting, and More Actionably Productive than the "Real" Thing

It's not the mechanics, it's the dynamics - In our rush to replace same-space meetings "temporarily" with digital meetings, we may just be in danger of missing out on the real opportunity of the moment.

WESTPORT, Conn. - March 31, 2020 - PRLog -- After more  than 25 years helping clients achieve moments of genius, repeatedly and on demand, the last decade studying how people think together creatively in groups and the past four years deeply involved in "distance learning," I have come to understand that virtual collaborations offer possibilities we only hope for in same-space encounters.

What can make virtual meetings more conducive to extraordinary results?

The safety of digital solitude.
It's what makes it possible for the social media "you" to be less inhibited than the "in the flesh" you. Even as you are "out in the world" digitally, you are still physically in your home safe space.

Permission to think out loud. In the physical presence of others, we are less likely to express thoughts that are only partially formed. Exposing ourselves and others to ideas as they develop in a virtual environment can accelerate and precipitate their perfection and benefit from evolving collaborative input.

Access to collective native intelligence. With traditional barriers lowered, we are open to inserting more of our total personal experience into the conversation. In same-space meetings we tend to offer more self-limited, uni-dimensional, participation, and constrain it by task, title, or job function.

Enforcing Collegiality.  Virtual meetings have high potential for expanded and elevated input opportunities. A collegial atmosphere, where every attendee and every opinion is treated as equally valuable, opens the door to more, and more meaningful, contributions.

Orchestrating Omnilogues. Work at ensuring that as many opinions as participants are voiced and heard.

Practicing and Encouraging contributions in short bursts. In basketball, the more hands touch the ball, the quicker it gets to the basket. The briefer and more intuitive the thinking, the greater the clarity.
