Definition:Ghost Meetings refer to virtual gatherings or online conferences where participants join but remain passive or unengaged throughout the session. The term is derived from the idea that attendees are present in body (or virtually) but are essentially "ghosts" in terms of their lack of active participation.
Attendees are present in the virtual meeting space but rarely contribute to discussions or share insights.
Ghost meetings are marked by a lack of engagement tools used by participants, such as chat messages, reactions, or raising hands.
The majority of attendees remain passive, leading to one-way communication and a missed opportunity for collective brainstorming or problem-solving.
Participants may have conflicting priorities, leading them to multitask or remain inactive during the meeting.
Technical difficulties or unfamiliarity with virtual platforms can contribute to disengagement.
Meetings lacking a clear agenda, defined goals, or interactive elements are more prone to becoming ghost meetings.
Ghost meetings can negatively impact team dynamics, reducing the sense of collaboration and camaraderie.
