Expat Academy GloMo Training - Effective Communication Skills

GloMo Training – Effective Communication Skills

Communication is a given.  We don’t think about how we do it, and never really notice it till it all goes wrong.  But the way you communicate with other people has a huge impact not only on how they view you, but on your ability to get things done.  Whether it’s just being a good listener as an assignee opens up about their life challenges, influencing a business leader or dealing with emotional responses, a good communicator has a huge advantage.

According to the Harvard Business Review, managers can spend up to 50% of their working week in meetings.  In the US, there are 25 million meetings per day at an estimated cost of $37 billion in lost productivity.  Of all the meetings that we attend, the most unproductive are the virtual meetings.  Connection issues, multitasking, distractions, and poor facilitation mean that the time we would have spent travelling to a face to face meeting would have been more efficient than attending the virtual conference.  How can we reclaim that time and boost meeting efficiency?  This session will give you the skills to improve your meeting skills, whether as a facilitator/chair or as a participant.

Delivered virtually in a 90-minute session, you will be able to practice the skills you learn during the session.  You will explore how to:

  • Adjust your meeting skills for the virtual environment
  • Increase engagement and ensure best use of the time
  • Flex your communication style to your virtual audience
