Covid-19 has brought about significant changes to how we work together and many of the changes look likely to stay once the immediate public health crisis passes. This webinar will reflect on how our working environment has changed and explore what skills, and behaviours are needed to work and collaborate more effectively when working remotely. Alina and Eleanor will identify how different communication methods and technology (email, conference calls, video calls etc. ) impact communication and team dynamics. The session will also explore how we can be creative about communication and make the right communication choices.
