Signing on to your first Sixty session can sometimes be tricky. We use Zoom's screen sharing software to facilitate our service. Here is a step-by-step guide to walk you through exactly how to start your first session:
- Zoom software downloaded before your session.
- Web Camera (recommended) — we like to see you, this helps us build rapport and judge your reactions.
- Microphone (required) — Sixty is built on the model of instantaneous feedback, so we need to hear what you have to say. Alternatively, you can use headphones with a built in mic. For example, most Sixty Experts use a Macintosh laptop with Apple headphones for the clarity in the sound and mic.
- Stable internet connection — screen-share takes a good amount of bandwidth, but more important than high speed is a stable connection via ethernet or strong WiFi signal.
