Overview of the webinar

Interpersonal communication skills can be challenging to develop, and they take conscious effort and ongoing practice to improve. During the chaos, crisis, and turmoil our team communications skills can be tested and if not focused on, can lead to negativity, distrust, misunderstandings, conflict, and increased stress.

Strong, effective interpersonal communication skills can create a sense of stability and predictability, lower stress and anxiety, and build trust and creativity.

This webinar highlights the interpersonal communication skills that are needed today during these times of uncertainty and change so that we can develop a productive, collaborative and healthy work environment.

Participants will develop the skills, tools, and strategies to interact in a respectful and successful way with their teams. It will address insights into dealing with interpersonal conflict and managing communication during times of change.

Why should you attend?

Many of our teams were having difficulty coping with stress long before COVID-19 came along. Now we are seeing that this stress is heightened even further, and our team communication skills may be breaking down.

It’s not about more meetings.

Communication is more than just the volume of messages that we are sending out during a crisis. We know that many of our remote workers are feeling overwhelmed with the volume of emails and meetings during this pandemic, yet are feeling uninformed, left behind, or isolated.

The key is to recognize what effective communication looks like, and how to deliver and connect during times of crisis and physical distancing.
