Best Practice: Sending meeting pre-reads
TLDR: Experiment with sending meeting pre-reads for working group and large team meetings (the works) to promote asynchronous work.
Why: In seeking to both share and digest knowledge, empowering teammates with context prior to a meeting can make the Zoom-time more collaborative and productive (and even fun?)
Share a pre-read Guru Card (including a private Card or a Knowledge Alert if there is a timely, required action other than digesting knowledge like filling out a form).
Experiment with Loom to provide context (this is especially helpful when asking for feedback on long form documents)
Include in your calendar invitation as well
Send at least 24 hours in advance of the meeting
Be mindful of how long it will take your audience to digest and take action on the knowledge. Include that time-frame in your communication
