Let’s face it: we miss going into the office. We miss seeing our colleagues, standing casually by their desks to brainstorm an idea or even sitting with them in the dreaded conference room during team meetings. COVID-19 and sheltering-in-place has taught us: we need our work relationships.
But how can we continue to build and maintain relationships in the absence of face-to-face communication?
This webinar will focus on understanding our basic interpersonal needs of inclusion, affection and control, and cover how to effectively communicate our needs to others, as well as understand and accommodate others’ interpersonal needs, and how to best create immediacy and connection over screens in personal and professional contexts.
In this webinar, you will:
1. Assess your need for affection, control and inclusion in professional communications.
2. Consider the interpersonal needs of those in your professional network.
3. Determine the impact of social distancing and remote work on your ability to meet your own needs and those of others.
4. Create a Communication Action Plan and Interpersonal Thrive Map.
