Breaking Down the Distance Barrier in Your Communications
Why does it feel so hard to build relationships and connections with colleagues who work from home or in a different office? If we’re being honest here, a lot of it has to do with the fact that you aren’t seeing them in the office on a day-to-day basis. You don’t bump into them in the hallway and have those water-cooler conversations. You often don’t “see” what they are doing, thinking or how they are reacting to what you are saying. So how do you build a strong and engaging relationship with your distanced employee, team or manager?
In this session, we will discuss what barriers you face in your distanced communications and how to overcome them. You’ll learn key best practices that you can put in to practice immediately to improve your distanced communications so you can work more effectively regardless of where you and your colleagues are located.
