Communicate With Impact: Our Key to Moving Forward
Early Eagle Rate:
Effective communication has always been the key to all healthy relationships.
Then, Covid-19 happened. It dramatically changed our way of living and working. It altered the majority of our interactions with other people. When we communicate via video, we lose the benefit of seeing certain aspects of body language. When we wear masks, we lose the ability to interpret critical facial expressions, plus, our own ability to convey emotion through facial expression.
As we adjust to the new situation, and urgency becomes the new norm, we need to stop comparing how we communicate now to how we used to communicate; it’s not going to help us move forward.
We must stay aware that communication will adapt the messages but use the same channels and best practices as before.
In this program therefore, you will strengthen your ability to communicate with appropriate impact in different settings - public and private, in person and on virtual communication platforms, and through routine or especially difficult interactions. As you discover and sharpen your authentic voice, you will gain a keener ability to get your message across.
You will continue to maintain healthy, meaningful relationships.
