I know it sounds strange, but a lot of time and group energy is wasted in determining who goes next during a meeting. This is especially true for virtual Forum meetings.
The alternative to having the moderator continuously call out the name of the person who’s turn is next is to create a Speaking Order ahead of time.
The moderator just has to pick who goes first, and then the rest of the group can use the guide to know who’s next.
I know this idea seems simple, but it’s all about time and energy management in virtual meetings, so little things like this matter.
