Body language during virtual meetings

With the pandemic and lockdown in full effect, the world of work has completely changed. As companies scramble to protect employees from the spreading coronavirus with travel restrictions and remote work arrangements, there’s a distinct possibility that in-person meetings with teams, customers, or suppliers may be canceled for unknown periods. Everything is now online, including those virtual meetings you find yourself attending several times a day, every day. Although you are not actively seeing these people face to face, it is still important that your body language is correct and that you are professionally communicating with others.

55% of communication is visual, 38% is vocal and only 7% is the words you use. However true you believe this to be, there is no doubt that your body language is an extremely important part of how you communicate with your fellow team members.

Body language provides us with important visual clues to what people are saying. From small clues like facial expressions or your stance, how tense or not your body is, to your gestures, your body language adds a great deal of meaning to your words.

Virtual teams meet face-to-face less often, so there is less chance to portray body language and you need to be more sensitive to written and spoken cues. This means that you have to use other means for identifying emotions and asking whether or not people are all on board.
