How to Practice Authentic Communication in a Virtual Space Through the Power of Listening

How to Practice Authentic Communication in a Virtual Space

On Demand

Duration: 30 minutes

About the Webinar

Being a good listener is vital to practicing authentic communication and ultimately, to a leader’s success. In today’s virtual world, merely showing up on camera or phone doesn’t inherently make you an active listener. Becoming a better listener in a virtual world allows leaders to improve their connection with team members and build relationships that result in more efficient and effective work. Join us as we uncover how to practice authentic communication – without ever leaving your home or office – by listening for facts, feelings, and values.

What You’ll Learn

In this webinar you’ll learn:

  • Specific actions to take – and avoid – in order to improve your listening skills while communicating virtually;
  • Tips for more authentic communication and avoiding misunderstandings and wasted time; and
  • How strong active listening skills can resolve conflicts, encourage innovation, promote inclusion, and more.

Foster authentic communication and build stronger listening skills, even if your people are collaborating virtually, with customized leadership development tailored to your organization’s unique context and culture.
