How To Build Relationships Over Video Conferencing

on September 19, 2014

Technology is in a wonderful position to disrupt the way we build and maintain relationships. Video Conferencing is a perfect example of how we can accomplish this while meeting some important business objectives including more regular face-to-face interaction with all of our important business stakeholders.

For most businesses large and small, they recognize the difficulty that can come with trying to stay connected.

Beyond just with employees that may be located in different geographic locations, but also to partners and customers, all of whom you may only see face to face a couple of times a year (if that).

However, like it does for some many things, technology is in a wonderful position to disrupt the way we build and maintain relationships. Video Conferencing is a perfect example of how we can accomplish this while meeting some important business objectives including more regular face-to-face interaction with all of our important business stakeholders.

So how does one build a better relationship over video conferencing?

In a recent article shared by the team at Cisco, they discuss this very topic. How does telepresence techology become a powerful tool in building stronger relationships?

From their perspective the strongest bonds are built on frequency. With video people can almost instantly connect and form deeper more meaningful relationships when video conferencing is used.  This mirrors what many regular video users say about how the technology empowers better relationships.

Has your organization considered utilizing video to build more frequent and meaningful interactions between employees, customers and partners?
