Leave it on so at least they can feel like they're building a human connection with you.Β

Always on, and flick off during screen shares.

It should match for the people attending the meeting, so either both on or both off, not half/half .

I like having camera on - gives a sense of who's listening and deeper facial expressions.Β

During large meetings I usually leave it off so I can vape in peace and doodle in my notepad. I keep it on during 1:1’s though

Respect each other to make sure discussion is quite transparent and right. Facial reactions show authenticity too

I go with the flow, if they have theirs off and don't turn on after the first minute or so, I turn it off

Crawling on the floor to avoid the zoom camera; just WFH things.
