What you’ll learn to do: Discuss the importance of technology and various methods of communication available
Both personal and professional communications are becoming increasingly dependent on technology. Everything from ordering dinner from your favorite Thai place to showing samples to far-away colleagues to running a credit card transaction depends on internet and phone communication.
Technology can also generate strong emotion in people: fear, frustration, fascination. In this module, you will learn how to calm the emotion and refocus people on the work at hand.
There are, of course, also considerations about the technology itself: Which platform or application do you choose? How do you use it? How do you make sure the conversation goes smoothly and productively for all involved?
