Watch On-Camera Connection: Building Trust and Rapport Digitally
Whether you're connecting with coworkers or clients, managing up or down or sideways, dealing with difficult people, or pitching your company for funding, your on-camera presence has never been more important. In this workshop, Vital Voice Training co-founders, Casey and Julie, took participants through the elements of building trust and authenticity across digital platforms. Key recommendations included:
  • Make sure you have proper lighting, particularly in front of you-- avoid backlighting!
  • Don't focus on "proper" posture: make your "butt big" and take up space
  • Use physical cues (i.e. shifting position, lifting hand) or using peoples' names to prevent interruptions
  • Focus on your ideal intention and outcome for your interaction in order to build trust and lead toward compromise
