If I’m at a meeting and I’m not doing any of the following;

  • Presenting
  • Answering questions or contributing to the conversation
  • Typing questions into the chat
  • Keeping myself off of video

Then I ask myself why am I here?  Maybe it’s an odd one where nothing was directed my way or maybe, I just don’t need to be there?

The common thread against all four of those bullet points is engagement, interaction, and intent.  If I am not needed, that is a function of the meeting, if I am choosing not to be to be a part of the meeting but am there, that is on me, and that is where I need to decide whether I truly need to be there.
