Video conferencing means to conduct a conference between two or more participants in different areas by using computer networks to transmit audio and video data. It is a technology used in modern offices to enhance communication because it’s cost effective and time-efficient. Furthermore, it improves communication between participants through facial and body language, an important component in understanding one another.
To fully take advantage of video conferencing, you need to know how EZTalks works and basic knowledge for body language, which helps you send correct message that you intend to send and ensures the conference a success. Here are the 10 most important body languages tips for your reference while videoconferencing.
1. Avoid Crossing of Arms
A study done by Allan and Barbara Pease showed that, a person remembers thirty eight percent of what they hear when their hands are not crossed compared to when the arms are crossed. This is an important tip to consider because a crossed arm can be interpreted to mean a crossed mind and that you are not paying attention to what is being discussed.
2. Lean your back in slightly
In most cases, sitting back in your chair may look okay, but if you do that in a video conferencing, it will send the message that you are not interested in what the speaker is presenting. Lean back but not completely in an intentional way.
