What is Engagement?
In a meeting context, engagement describes the attention level of attendees and how much they participate in the meeting's activities. A participant's engagement is easiest to see when they are speaking or actively working in a group activity. People listening attentively may also be highly engaged.
Often it is easier to detect when a participant is disengaged. Signs of disengagement include multitasking, interrupting or holding side conversations, reading reports or email during the meeting, not speaking up when the opportunity arises and sleeping. Well-designed and led meetings make it easy for participants to stay engaged.
