Studies show that over 50% of workforces are feeling incompetent, excluded and/or stressed because of their lack of knowledge or inability to communicate with their team, remotely. The biggest stress, frustration, and barrier for moving forward is not having the support, the tools ,and the ‘know how’. In order to move forward while ‘isolated’, basic communication and collaboration skills through Zoom, GoToMeeting and other virtual platforms has become an essential skill. This fun, interactive 2-part workshop will include everything you need to know to use these technologies, to once again communicate and lead your team with confidence and ease!
