How can a professional social networking help you? This seminar gives you the tools and knowledge to effectively set up your profile for the biggest professional social networking site with over 100 million members. Start taking advantage of LinkedIn in order to network with other professionals in your field, find a job, and get answers to your questions. Conversing with colleagues, setting up user groups and sharing information are also covered, in addition to tried and tested ideas and best practice tips to help you get the most out of this tool.
Most people do not put the same effort into reading emails as they do into writing them. Or rather, most people do not put much effort into reading or writing emails. How many times have you regretted pushing the send button? Reading emails as they are intended to be read and without misinterpretation is not as easy as reading into emails. We all have our own filters, and reasons for or ways of interpreting what someone is saying. 50% of emails are misinterpreted! What is difficult about emails is that they lack the verbal and visual cues we are so dependent on when we communicate face-to-face.
This seminar covers: Your E-Style, how to identify the e-style of others, what helps to diffuse emotions triggered by the content of poorly phrased or quickly written emails, how to understand the real intent of the message, and how to craft more productive emails.
Learn about Social Networking using LinkedIn, Twitter, and Facebook. While these tools are still evolving in their format and how people use them, they can be an integral part of your networking efforts whether looking for new business or connecting with key people as you look for your next job. Learn about online etiquette in these networks, add-on applications for interfacing to them from your computer or mobile phone, and tips on time management, so they do not become a drain on your schedule.
