Virtual communication has clearly many advantages including increased productivity, reduced business costs and a better work/life balance for your working teams. Obviously, a large number of organizations start or are already working remotely, so the need for effective virtual communication skills has become increasingly evident. According to 2016 Gallup data, 43% of workers spend at least some time working in a different location than their coworkers and a whopping 31% spend between 80-100% of their time working remotely.
However, virtual communication also entails numerous challenges and obstacles which are often neglected in light of the benefits.
In this virtual training workshop, we will discuss and experiment on essential communication skills, enhanced with all needed “add-ons” for effective virtual communication between remote co-workers and remote teams. Some of the aspects we will deal with include:
- Why communication matters?
- Communication Process (Berlo’s SMCR model)
- Principles of effective communication
- Communication Sub-Skills
- Communication Rule
- Communication VS Virtual Communication
- Tips for effective Communication & Virtual Communication
- Communication barriers in Face-to-Face and Virtual environment
- Five Problems with Virtual Communication & What to Do About It
- Virtual meetings checklist
The workshop is held live through e-platform. We utilize the features of the platform and we deliver the workshop as “live” as possible.
