The pandemic caused the greatest office exodus of all time. For many employees, this meant joining virtual meetings or working from home, when they hadn’t before. As a result, companies were challenged to find new ways to connect remote teams. They were also challenged to use more video and different messaging tools.
The good news is that most employees are happy with the change. According to Pew Research, 65% of teleworkers who use remote technologies such as video conferencing or instant messaging think online tools are a good substitute for in-person contact.
Conversely, 20% of leaders reported they felt less effective at leading virtual teams. Further, 15% felt their ability to show empathy had diminished, which is normally a skill where leaders rate themselves well. But this drop shows leaders are much less sure of themselves when they are put to the test, especially virtually. Demonstrating empathy on a video call takes much more finesse than doing it in person!
In this hands on session, you’ll discover strategies (and science) to overcome fear and position yourself as an invaluable leader. Join us and Micky Lazic from Own The Room where you will learn to:
- Master the magic formula to gain respect,
- Forge stronger relationships, and
- Increase your influence during any meeting, presentation, or interview.
