How to Connect with People in a Virtual World
Whether it’s a phone call that didn’t go as planned or a miscommunication over email, or an embarrassing moment on Zoom, we don’t bother to think deeply about what went wrong, we just shrug it off and keep going. We rely on technology to help us connect more than ever, especially now, but we’re doing it badly.
Although we know instinctively that talking with someone virtually is not the same as connecting in person, we don’t know how to compensate for the difference. But the cost in fractured relationships, missed opportunities, and lost connections is immense.
In this interactive ExecuNet Master Class session, communications expert Nick Morgan introduces research from neuroscience to help us understand why we lose so much meaning in virtual communications, and new guidelines for getting better at it. He starts by identifying the key problem—trying to replicate the experience of a face-to-face communication in the virtual world and assuming the same rules apply.
It's time to learn a new language for communicating successfully in the virtual world.
