The ways in which people communicate are changing rapidly. In the digital workplace,Â electronic exchanges â€“text messages, Facebook posts, tweets, video chats, blog commentaries and email messagesâ€”are being used to convey information as much as, or more than, in-person discussions, phone calls, and written correspondence. These newer kinds of communication allow people to interact with others quickly and easily, and to share news efficiently with more people than ever before. Yet, as with all things new, there is a learning curve. It takes time to understand how to use the new tools politely. A breach of etiquette (even committed in innocence) can result in loss of business or a job offer. This seminar will help participants interact effectively with colleagues, bosses and clients whether they are using their Smartphones to text a colleague or their computer to tweet followers or email clients.
The following topics will be discussed: Smartphones, Texting, The Big Three: LinkedIn, Twitter and Facebook, Blogs, Skype and Email. The seminar is interactive. Participants take the social media quiz and engage in small group exercises.
