Webinar: Digital Body Language: Coaching for Collaboration

Businesswoman at home having a zoom call with team
August 19, 2021 - 1:00pm to 2:00pm

Email replies that show up a week later. Video chats full of “oops... sorry no you go” and “can you hear me?!” Ambiguous text-messages. Is it any wonder communication takes us so much time and effort to figure out? How did we lose our innate capacity to understand each other? Humans rely on body language to connect and build trust, but with most of our communication happening from behind a screen, traditional body language signals are no longer visible - or are they?

In this webinar,  IOC thought leader Erica Dhawan combines cutting-edge research with engaging storytelling to decode the new signals and cues that have replaced traditional body language across genders, generations, and cultures. In person, we lean in, uncross our arms, smile, nod, and make eye contact to show we listen and care. Online, reading carefully is the new listening. Writing clearly is the new empathy. And a phone or video call is worth a thousand emails. Author of the new book DIGITAL BODY LANGUAGE, Erica will supercharge your coaching process and client interactions with science-backed rules that foster connection, build trust and drive innovation.  You will learn:

  • The digital body language signals you may be broadcasting (even if you don't intend to!)
  • How to effectively communicate across email, phone, IM, text, video, and even live meetings
  • Develop coaching strategies that foster deeper relationships, both in-person and online
  • End useless meetings, missed deadlines, and digital misunderstandings
