How to Keep the Workplace Civil?

    Good Morning,

    I do not always know what my colleagues are dealing with behind the frame on video calls.  (They could be facing personal issues at home, yet wearing a public face during work hours to get the job done.)

    In consideration of this unknown, do you have an approach to being cordial with your fellow coworkers in virtual work meetings? 

    Your thoughts are most appreciated.

    In my opinion, familiarity with the processes and methods of body language knowledge can be effective in guiding the type of sessions and making the most of it.
    Creating a culture and awareness of these practices can be as effective in guiding the type of meetings to achieve the goal as in face-to-face meetings.
