How to communicate effectively and connect meaningfully on Zoom

How to communicate effectively and connect meaningfully on Zoom
Wednesday, November 11, 2020, 5:30 pm – 6:30 pm

Communicating on Zoom has become a way of life for our entire planet. This workshop will address the unique challenges of communicating effectively on Zoom or on any other online platform. 

We’ll discuss how to communicate our ideas successfully, how to understand those of others accurately, and how to make meaningful connections while seeing our conversation partners only on screen.

We’ll look at three stages of online communication:

  1. Before: how we can prepare for a successful Zoom call. 

  1. During: what we can do during an online call to get our points across and to practice active listening. In this section, we’ll also discuss behaviors that help strengthen the personal connection among parties involved. 

  1. After: how should we follow up and what should we reiterate at this stage of our communication. 

This is a workshop aimed at strengthening a practical skill through as much active participation as an online
environment allows. Reserve your attendance today. (Zoom access codes will be sent to registrants.)
