EEMCS Workshop: Effective Digital Communication

Fellow students that don’t listen, an idea that is ignored or a load of criticism: influence in conversations does not come by itself. Especially in digital meetings, where distractions from social media, roommates and the coffee machine are more available than ever. How do you keep a grip on your digital meeting?

In this workshop, we apply the most important psychological insights of communication to the new reality of daily digital meetings. On the basis of Nobel Prize winning research of Daniel Kahneman, you learn how to make more impact in conversations. After inventorising the most occurring problems in Shell, we prepare an interactive session in which participants learn the basics in the right conversation techniques. Possible items in the program are:

  • The laws of brain-friendly communication
  • The art of persuasion
  • Attention giving and attention grabbing
  • The danger of the negativity bias
  • Effective reaction strategies for every situation
