If you think you can slack off during Zoom meetings at work, guess again. Digital body language is the new subtext of our new form of visual digital communication.
Erica Dhawan, who wroteDigital Body Language: How to Build Trust and Connection No Matter the Distance, spoke toTodayand shared tips on how to be more effective during your teleconference calls.
Erica stresses that camera angle is important so that viewers aren’t looking up your nose or down on your forehead. She also encourages nodding and smiling during the meeting to show that you are engaged. And, perhaps the hardest tip, she suggests that you turn off the self-view so you stay focused on the speaker and the topic.
