120 second Small Business Tips: call in to G2M

On this road trip we have been meeting with our distributed team for usual business purposes.  Typically, we launch a GoTo Meeting from our browser and talk over voip.  Since we are on the road, we have had meetings in some really unusual places: Starbucks, Sears auto center and even in the car.  One thing we have really enjoyed is the GoTo Meeting feature where you can create a call in number.  This way no matter if we are in front of our computer or not we can call in with our cell phone and be with the rest of our team on the call.

120 second Small Business Tips: Online Meetings

As part of our 120 second Small Business Tips today AJ talks about online meetings and the benefits of face to face (or face to screen) meetings as opposed to straight over the phone meetings.  We have been using GoTo Meeting for the past two years and love it, they make it extremely easy to create and launch meetings on the go.  I am particularly excited about their new feature, hd faces which is bringing video to GoTo Meeting.  Whatever service you use it is vital when you have a distributed team to have ability to collaborate and meet together on a daily basis.  What helps you stay connected to your distributed team?

Interview with Lisa Horner

AJ interviewed Lisa Horner of GoTo Meeting and talked about distributed workforces and workshifting as part of how you can empower employees within the enterprise.

Something that really stood out to me was the idea that when getting work done as a team it is imperative not to be location and space centric instead build a culture of trust.  Regardless of where people are you need to believe that you can build an intimate relationship with them.
