The world of video calls in the professional setting is upon us!
Please keep these tips in mind as you prepare for your Motivo Video Calls.
If nothing else, follow the main rule of thumb: If you wouldn’t do it in-person, don’t do it on a video call.
While these are the practical rules of online video etiquette, we also asked Motivo supervisor, Valerie K. Rogers LPC-S (Texas), to share her best advice when it comes to tele-supervision. Check out what Valerie has learned works below:
One of the things that really helped me was having an agenda. Although you may not get through everything you have on the agenda, it still serves as a great way to stay organized and on task.
After reviewing the agenda, I use pre-made slideshow explain supervision expectations for both my supervisees and myself.
If you are not already accustomed to using a video platform, I suggest setting up a test video session to familiarize yourself with all of the features, like screenshare, document uploading and toggling.
If you are working with a group, I recommend having an icebreaker so the participants can all become better acquainted, as well as ease some of the nerves and anxiety they may have about their meeting.
I often give supervisees homework assignments and make recommendations for resources and books I think would be helpful. I work in a collaborative approach, so I also always welcome their feedback and questions.
I hope you find these tips, tools, and tricks to be useful!
