Course description

Effective Virtual Communication for Remote Workers – an interactive and engaging remote-learning course, plus e-learning

Remote working has many advantages for both employees and organisations, but it also comes with its own unique set of challenges.

Without sharing office space, you and your colleagues must find new ways to meet, share ideas and collaborate. Lacking the opportunity to pick up on cues like body language, facial expression and tone puts a heavier burden on written communication – and can mean more misunderstandings and bad feeling. And an absence of in-person interaction can lead to remote workers feeling disconnected, disengaged and isolated.

Thriving in the virtual environment
But with a new skill set, effective workflows and an understanding of how to make the most of available tools, you and your colleagues can thrive in your virtual workplace. This half-day intensive session will equip you with the key skills and techniques you need.

Live online training
This course is run remotely, using the latest web technology. That means you can attend from anywhere. All you need is a computer, a headset and stable internet access.

Learning online is always going to be different from learning in person. So Emphasis Training have carefully designed their remote sessions with these differences in mind, to ensure you still get the same level of interactivity as in their face-to-face training.

Suitability - Who should attend?

This course will benefit anyone who does most or all of their work remotely via online tools.

And because this is remote training, you can attend no matter where you are.

Outcome / Qualification etc.

After completing this training, you'll understand how to make the most of the virtual workplace. You will know how to collaborate and communicate with colleagues and clients effectively and with confidence.

As part of the preparation, Emphasis will ask you to fill in an analysis exercise which identifies your social style. The insights that this questionnaire reveals will help you understand and support your own drivers and needs at work, as well as to relate better to your colleagues.

Training Course Content

After this session, you'll know how to:

  • understand virtual-communication etiquette and tone
  • establish your message and choose the right channel to share it
  • communicate key messages clearly
  • inform, update and persuade with your writing

  • run engaging online meetings and collaborate online

You will also have a year's access to the comprehensive e-learning package The complete business writer (usually £150) included with the training.

Doug was a great presenter – explained things well and led by example. Use of polls and breakouts was great for engagement.
