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 eight:

8.      Face-to-face business meetings allow for individual attendees to develop strong social relationships among themselves. There are higher levels of importance to shared activities when facilitated face-to-face. The social bonding and showing of commitment by being fully engaging in mutually meaningful experiences. We can all recall with great clarity whom we were with, and what we shared, when we experienced a meaningful interaction in a group setting. What special shared moments can you remember while attending a face-to-face meeting?

 

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.
