Face to Face Meetings are always the BEST communication method. Why? You can judge body language, eye contact and emotional feedback.
Now that we are dealing with the COVID 19 Virus, online communication is essential to keep in contact with our colleagues and friends.
Online Communication by way of ZOOM and other platforms, can be daunting at the start. A lot of people would not have seen themselves on screen before. They may not have heard their voice before either.
I tell people to “Be Yourself! And think of Zooming etc., as like talking to your colleagues in your lounge/sitting room.
When meeting with your colleagues online, there are several aspects to be aware of. Bear in mind that the meeting a group online, people may tend to lose attention.
What I Suggest
Online Meetings, when well-structured and well communicated, will become extremely effective and beneficial to employees and their organisation.
