Women in Leadership Hosting Digital Communication Talk With Erica Dhawan Feb. 10
Are you undermining your own presentations or even emails and texts, without knowing it?
The Women in Leadership Initiative is pleased to bring leadership expert, global speaker and author Erica Dhawan to the University for a talk on body language in the digital era.
All faculty, staff and students are invited to Dhawan’s talk on Friday, Feb. 10, from 2 to 3 p.m. in the Joyce Hergenhan Auditorium in Newhouse 3. Registration is required. To attend, complete this brief survey by Feb. 6:
Dhawan combines cutting-edge research with engaging storytelling to decode the new signals and cues that have replaced traditional body language across genders, generations and cultures. She investigates a wide array of exchanges from large conferences and video meetings to daily emails, texts, IMs and conference calls and offers insights and solutions to increase clarity and build trust.
Audience members will learn new rules and nuances of digital body language, the new requirement to innovate faster and further together.
From Dhawan’s presentation, participants will:
- better understand their collaboration style and what digital body language signals they are broadcasting (even unintended ones);
- create cultures of maniacal clarity in email, phone, IM, text, video mediums and even live meetings in the new normal; and
- develop a collaboration strategy to produce the highest-performing teams and relationships.
Dhawan is an internationally recognized leading authority, speaker and advisor on 21st-century teamwork, collaboration and innovation. Named as one of the top 50 management thinkers in the world by Thinkers50, she is the author of two bestselling books, “Get Big Things Done: The Power of Connectional Intelligence” and “Digital Body Language: How to Build Trust and Connection, No Matter the Distance.”
As we continue to experience an increasingly digital world where work practices are changing at a blistering pace, Dhawan shares innovative strategies to unlock the collective power of teams, build a culture of trust across any distance and create authentic engagement to ensure competitiveness. Rated No. 1 on the Top Women Keynote Speakers list, Erica frequently appears in the Harvard Business Review, Fast Company and The Wall Street Journal. Dhawan speaks on global stages ranging from the World Economic Forum at Davos, to the U.S. Army, to companies such as Coca-Cola, FedEx, Goldman Sachs, Walmart and Cisco. She holds degrees from Harvard University, MIT Sloan and The Wharton School.
