Most people prefer face-to-face meetings. When you're in the same room, conversations tend to be more engaging and effective at building trust. The tone of a person's voice is easier to hear; eye contact, facial expressions, and body language are all visible; props like whiteboards and sticky notes can help you describe an idea visually.... The list goes on. When you make the switch to online work, these communication channels can be compromised. But, if you can master remote meetings, you'll be a better communicator overall. Plus, you'll be able to engage in a broader range of projects and professional networking.
