“Meetings via phone can be as effective, or even more effective, than in person meetings,” says Poland. “Just because the meetings are held over the phone doesn’t mean they should be treated any differently than an in-person meeting. Send an agenda ahead of time, come up with talking points, assign certain items to team members, take roll call when the meeting begins to ensure everyone is present and follow-up via email with a meeting summary.
