Ever wonder if your text message or email was interpreted the right way? I do.
Over 11 years working remotely, and communication continues to be a challenge at times. Without seeing facial expressions, body language, or hearing tone of voice, there’s a lot of room for misinterpretation.
Check out this video for specific examples of how to communicate with clear emotional intent to build trust with your clients, employees and business partners:
Our company has been working remotely for the last 10 years, and one of the biggest challenges we have faced during this time is communicating with clear emotional intent. Without seeing facial expressions, body language, or hearing tone of voice, there’s a lot of room for misinterpretation.
To combat this, we suggest:
- Using Emojis and Gifs to help convey the emotional intent, so that the right message comes across.
- Saying things like “Ok, happy to follow up.”, instead of just “Ok.”
- Using descriptive words and humor when appropriate.
