The Digital Body Language Workshop

Session length: 45 minutes

2019-06-10T13:00:00-04:00 Monday, June 10th 13:00 EDT

When your client replies “fine!” are they actually fine… or are they angry? Do you wait hours to get clarification on a vague e-mail? Did that weekend text message from your colleague irritate you? We are communicating faster and more often than ever before. We feel like we’re connected – but are we really?  We save time using email, right? But then we end up using all of that ‘saved’ time to clarify what we meant in the first place. In person, we can clarify context immediately. We rely on body language and tone to grasp the real meaning. With our digital walls up, we lose subtext and nuance.

We all leave a digital impression on each other. If someone doesn’t text back for hours or even days, do you think they are being rude? Is using an emoji or LOL unprofessional, or creating a human connection with your team? What impression does your boss, client, or colleague think of that kind of behavior? Whether your team works on separate floors, buildings or even countries, they have to connect online in order to collaborate.These new misunderstandings are happening all day, every day. They’re reducing your client engagement, morale, and coaching performance each time.

In this workshop, you will learn new rules and nuances of creating human connection in digital communication, led by collaboration expert Erica Dhawan.

Key Learning Takeaways

  1. Understand your digital communication style and what signals you are broadcasting (even if you don’t intend to!).
  2. Reduce the confusion and frustration that comes with communication across all our various mediums, like email, phone, IM, text, apps and even live meetings.
  3. Develop a digital communication strategy to create the highest performing relationships.
  4. Understand and use digital subtext to create real intellectual and emotional connection, no matter the distance.
