Working remote seems to be the new normal, and it is time to face some of the challenges that come with it. Like relationship building.
I've heard people say variations on, "you can't get to know people unless you see them face to face!" Or, "the best ideas happen if you're in the same room!"
And well.. I disagree. Emphatically! I've been building relationships with colleagues and customers from afar for 6 years, and I'm here to say: it can be done. It's just another skill that you needed to practice and develop.
In this talk we'll:
- Discuss tips and tricks to building relationships over zoom
- Exercise some new muscles for distance EQ
- Shed light on what you've already learned in the last few years of remote work
- Cover strategies to help build your team spirit when you can't get together in the same place
