What value(s) do we realize as an attendee from meeting face-to-face? Why is it important to meet face-to-face?

Psychologically there are a number of positive values about face-to-face meetings that cannot usually be achieved as well through other forms of communication. Here is part seven:

7.      Face-to-face business meetings allow for individual attendees to evaluate and judge the integrity, reliability, competencies and skill sets of other participants and leaders in ways that are not easily evaluated within computer or virtual methods. It is comparative human nature, people judge people. Do I fit in with this organization? Do we have similar values and standards? Are they worthy of my trust?

I NEED YOUR HELP! I am gathering information for a project which I am writing on the value of, and perception of, face-to-face group meetings. The focus is on the group dynamic of meetings and not on one-on-one, face-to-face sales presentations. During each part of this series, I will share a new positive feature about face-to-face meetings. I want to learn from you, the attendee, on what you achieve and receive from attending face-to-face meetings. I want your perception! Your thoughts! Your value!

Keep sending me all of your comments as they are all welcome. Please feel free to respond publicly here on the blog or privately to roger@reventllc.com.

I want to thank you in advance for your participation in assisting in creating a greater value to face-to-face meetings.
