Ok, I WFH 100% of the time and before the pandemic we handled all of our Zoom meetings with the audio feature. When Corporate sent everyone to remote work they put in place a rule that employees needed to use the video conferencing option in Zoom.
This week I had a colleague (Male) tell me I’m to serious and need to smile more on video conferences.... I am not presenting and in most am there to listen and gain insight on what is going on in different areas of the company. This colleague is someone I have know for awhile and has helped me in my career so I am not sure if this is a gender thing or how I should take the comment.
My response was to ask them how I should look during the call when I am listening and taking notes, any thoughts or advice?
