Setting the Tone: Communication on Digital Platforms
Sloane Haines (Florida State)

Texting, social media posts, emails and even memes are all ways people communicate these days. But talking through text allows things to get lost in translation as there’s no body language, facial expression or tone. And when there are character limitations, how can you tell the full story in 280 characters or less?  In this webinar, we focus on Gamma Phi Beta’s member competency of communication. Specifically, focusing on how to have a thoughtful, engaging conversation in this ever-changing digital age.

Assertive not Aggressive
Ann Kerian (North Dakota)

When people converse in clear, honest and direct ways and respect the feelings and thoughts of others, the communication becomes the foundation for strong and healthy relationships that can withstand conflict and problems. Assertive communication is a skill that can be learned, but for many people, it takes practice. There are specific communication techniques that enhance managing the challenges of working with and living with others. Join March's Confident Women of Character Series webinar to continue building upon Gamma Phi Beta's member competency of communication.

February: Communication Required: How to Present Your Ideas Powerfully and Inspire Others to Action
Ashley Lang (Northern Iowa) 

Gamma Phi Beta’s member competency of communication discusses being prepared, thoughtful, engaged and reflective. We need to be prepared by knowing ourselves, thoughtful with how others think, feel, get inspired and act, engaged in motivating and influencing others and reflective in taking meaning from each day.

This all begins with how we send and receive messages. Communication is required in life. Spend some time intentionally exploring how you can make your communication clear and relevant to your audience.
