FIX your VIDEO conference ‘look’ – NOW
Whatever can be seen
will be seen, and will form an impression
and a potential for loss or gain.
This point is contained in this week’s video clip that focuses on Key message one, of the Art of Communication through Video Conferencing, Series#1. Namely:
Make sure you set up the environment for a professional video conference.
Here is the 1:50 minute CLIP for you to view.
The four Key messages of the series are these:
ONE: Make sure you set up the environment for a professional video conference
TWO: Increase the energy certainty in your face, body and voice when you speak
THRE: Use an Open-Middle-Close speaking structure
FOUR: Be assertive in checking if your messages are understood.
Own the Conversation
Over the next seven days, consider what you could do to enhance what people see through a screen, of you and your office.
Perhaps place your camera at eye level or organise the background of your office to be non-distracting or ensure you dress as you would for a face to face meeting.
p.s. In the current environment, some of you may have upcoming job interviews. Here is a 2:28 minute CLIP on how to answer the first question in a job interview.
The clip is from my Confident Personal Communication video learning series.
From my field experience with clients, nailing the first job interview question – all things being equal – can be the difference between you winning the position and coming in second.
