Ever feel like the meaning behind your words just wasn’t received, or was totally misconstrued?
We interact constantly through multiple devices with various people and must produce results. Often, device choice and use sends unintended messages about us. How we behave when engaging with others causes assumptions about our capabilities. Most often, these are unconscious.
Technology helps us extend our reach, but often at the cost of bad decisions, incorrect work, and damaged relationships. To thrive in a digital milieu, we must fathom the electronic equivalent to the body language we know: signs that someone is not engaged, overwhelmed, frustrated, confused, or simply not interested or capable.
INSTRUCTOR: Stefanie Heiter, Principal of Bridging Distance, is among the nation’s leading thinkers in the human side of virtual work. She provides expertise in such areas as leadership and team development for those located in the same place and virtually. Her efforts enable people to create productive relationships across distance, while pulling them out of the email and meeting insanity, giving them back valuable time and focus.
Our research shows that people are more likely to perceive negative than positive intent, and those with good virtual work skills are exponentially more satisfied at work. Happier people are more productive. Solid digital habits give back valuable time, immeasurably compensating for any added effort.
The process begins with a confidential online assessment completed by each individual prior to the session. This affords each participant the chance to digest the results and monitor electronic behaviors. This interactive training has participants analyzing their own and others digital habits through key model ‘lenses’. These insights have the purpose of creating standards and protocols. The bottom line results will exceed the cost of the training.
