Body Language in the New Normal – How to leave a lasting impression
Body language and non-verbal gestures are the first things we notice when we meet someone in person, but what about in the virtual world? Is it the same? According to the European Commission, in 2019, only 5.4% of employees in the EU worked from home. However, in March 2020, this number had drastically increased, with most non-essential workers forced to work from home as the EU was in lockdown. This meant a new world of virtual meetings and conducting business remotely. However, aside from the technology issues, many people did not know how to conduct themselves in the virtual business world. And today, we are returning to in-person meetings after 18 months of being behind the camera, so how are we adapting? As we transition to this “blended” business world, we need to be aware of out body language and we give off? In this episode, we speak with one of Europe’s premier body language experts about how you can leave a lasting impression in virtual meetings and in the new normal.
