Communication, Collaboration and Engagement for the New World Virtual

Why should I take this virtual course?

The world that is shaping up for the post COVID-19 Pandemic is going to be different than the one we left behind. While the writing had been on the wall for a long time (not referring to the outbreak of a Pandemic, we are now entering into times that require us to introduce efficiencies and collaboration that will help reduce waste and get accustomed to the new way of doing business – with heavier focus on working remotely.

This session takes participants through a series of concepts and idea that will help them improve their ability to engage and collaborate their distributed teams, while maintaining and even improving productivity and value-creation. The session also allows participants to apply their learning toward improving their communication with their teams – by introducing pointed and focused communication techniques that reduce waste and improve performance. These communication techniques focus on sharpening the message, delivering communication to the relevant party, and reducing blasting and off-target communication.

The concepts introduce here are significantly overdue in the need to apply them and there is no better time than a crisis to force us to improve the way we do things.
