Pivoting to an almost full time arsenal of online engagement with clients and colleagues demands that we lift our game as communicators. Learning the art of engaging effectively, articulately and with purpose requires basic forward planning. Read the zoom room. Be concise. Be mindful of the body language you exude (eye rolls can be captured!). And don’t shy away from being personable – smile & nod in acknowledgement to those who speak with you. Perhaps an unintended consequence of deploying video conferencing so prolifically will be a more concerted effort to make eye contact and listen reflexively better than we’ve had to before.
