18 Tips to Setup Your Remote Sessions


25th March 2020 by Steve Holyer

For Trainers, Coaches, Facilitators, Leaders, and other guides: Here are 18 tips to help you setup engaging high bandwidth, high interaction remote experiences. From our article Remote Now.


Remember, whatever happens is the only thing that could.

Decide where to build your experience based on bandwidth and interactivity.

Find out what’s expected and needed.

Design your alliances. Consider what's possible and available.

Use video conferencing that works & stays out of the way.

You only need a few simple tools.

Ask yourself, “What's the simplest thing that could possibly work?”

Ask yourself, “How can I do less and get the same result (or better)?”

Find a friend and practice using your tools (and your process) together. Have fun while you do it.

Learn the moves and the counts. Write the moves down and memorise them. Throw out your notes (when your space demands it). Then dance gracefully in the flow.

Work together in a pair or team.

If you're working with other guides, create working agreements.

Revisit your working agreements often. Remember to inspect and adapt.

Look for ways to get the same outcomes online.

Old favourite activities may not spark joy online. If they don't spark joy online, thank them for their service to you, and let them go.

Hold the space you’re in.

Put the people first. Then interactions, processes, and tools. In that order.

These tips are based on our story of creating high bandwidth, high interactivity remote events here on CoachingCocktails.com.
