We’ve all had 12 months of “you’re on mute”…. a year of partners, kids and cats camera bombing us.
We did the Zoom wave, we had the Zoom laughs, we saw the Zoom lows.
We’ve all struggled to find the right head space for training when we’re sat in our kitchens.
We’ve all had meetings with someone sat on (or in some cases IN) their beds.
Now, as we start to think about getting back to normal… and fingers crossed it’s for good this time… we need to start setting some guidelines.
So before you join a session with us… THINK… MINT!
- Have Breakfast First – we’re all busy! But you wouldn’t sit in a face to face training session with toast and cereal. OK maybe you would, but we would prefer it if you didn’t.
- Arrive On Time – whether it’s a MINTie or an external trainer delivering a session, it’s just good manners to arrive on time. For future session, we won’t be allowing anyone onto calls after five minutes, unless pre-arranged. It also looks bad in our recorded replay videos when the trainer has to stop to welcome someone 20 minutes in.
- Wear Pants – ok, most of us do! But by this we mean try and dress appropriately as you would for a face to face session. It’s good for your MINDSet to get up and get dressed.
- Camera ON, Mic OFF – when you join a call, it’s best to keep yourself on mute to avoid background noise and interference. And because we’re a small group of like-minded folk who know each other (or want to get to know each other), we’d prefer it if everyone kept their cameras on, just so we know you’re there and you’re engaged.
- Plan For The Full Session – if you’re not sure if a training session is right for you, please find out more before joining. There’s nothing worse than a trainer seeing people leave a session part way through. And if you’re taking part in accountability sessions, please hang around and hear what everyone else has to say – accountability is a group effort and we have seen some members join a session, say their bit and leave. We’d rather you didn’t do this.
That’s all for now! If you have any feedback on these rules, please let us know.
