In recent weeks, in various parts of the world, working from home has become a new reality for many… and video conferencing is not always easy. Children appear, the dog barks, there’s background noise… it happens to all of us.
From both our side and that of clients, there have been embarrassing moments and avoidable mistakes. That’s why we’ve gathered some tips for having successful video calls from home.
1. Choose the right environment. Consider what’s around you, including the background. It’s better to have a smooth wall and avoid windows that provide too much backlight. If you’re using a laptop, place it in a stable location. Subtle camera movements can be distracting.
2. Invite anyone, anytime. Video conferencing doesn’t always have to be scheduled; if you’re in the middle of a lengthy email conversation, you can set up a meeting instantly and invite people to join.

In this new normality, video calls have become the primary form of communication for intergroup and group meetings in every organization. There’s a wide range of experience and preparation, so we’ve put together these tips.
3. Share only what you want to share. It often happens during screen sharing that someone accidentally minimizes the window, revealing their emails, open #WhatsApp, or cluttered desktop. To avoid this, pay attention to presentation options, select only the window you want to show, not the entire view of your screen.
4. Be real. We all have a life outside of work. Depending on the culture of your workplace, it may be okay (even encouraged) to show a bit of your “real” life, such as letting your child greet the camera or having lunch if you’ve been on back-to-back calls all day. Showing a bit of your life can foster deeper connections with your coworkers and even create empathy for whatever you’re dealing with outside of work.
5. How do I see everyone? For #GoogleMeets, there’s a Chrome extension called “Grid View” that allows you to see everyone, and you can even put your camera on if you want to see yourself as just another participant.
