Organizations today often communicate virtually with employees, suppliers, customers, and the community at large. At the same time, many do not have a formal overall philosophy around how to successfully communicate in a virtual environment.  There are some very basic tenets that, if used consistently, will improve virtual communication for the enterprise resulting in increased productivity, improved morale, and retention of key personnel.

In this session, you'll be introduced to a new perspective on communicating virtually and walk away with skills that will empower you to use a transformative approach to successfully communicating in a virtual environment.

Presenter Dawn Miller Sander spent 20+ years with AT&T in Sales and Management and mastered the art of leading a team of professionals in a virtual environment. From this experience, she developed tools and techniques to overcome the typical challenges of virtual communication such as mis-communication, conflict, and declining results. Dawn also is a practitioner of Conflict Transformation and earned her MA from Eastern Mennonite University’s Center for Justice and Peace Building. She will demonstrate conflict transformation tools, distinctions, and techniques that - when applied to communicating virtually - will result in clarity of communication and improved results.
