Fatigue and collaboration remain challenges of virtual work. We recreated physical meetings in virtual space – but we did not establish the ‘ritual and routine’ that made in-person work more predictable and less taxing.
Stanford’s Glenn Fajardo and a group of researchers have found virtual meetings can be satisfying experiences with high-quality human connection – but only when given proper context or ritual.
Glenn joins you live to explain ritual and help your team create its OWN rituals to improve YOUR virtual workplace.
Glenn Fajardo is the co-author of the January 2021 “Rituals for Virtual Meetings: Creative Ways to Engage People and Strengthen Relationships” and a fellow at the Stanford University School of Design.
Glenn has spent the past five years teaching executive education classes at Stanford that emphasized how people can be creative together when they are far apart, including “Design Across Borders”, “Design Insider / Outsider” and “Long Distance Design”.
Glenn has been a student of virtual collaboration since 2008, working with teams across six continents engaged in social impact work. He was formerly the Director of the Global Network Co-Design Practice of TechSoup, and is trained in nuclear engineering and public policy.
