Knowledge creates <br />

Online Conversation Skills are a future topic

During the pandemic many people started to see online communication with a fresh view. Suddenly it was more than a emergency solution and scenarios took place online that were not accepted online before.

  • But what are the success factors of communicatively challenging online settings?
  • Where are the real added values of online communication?
  • In which cases and under which conditions is “online” more than just an emergency solution?
  • What competences does a good online moderator / online mediator need and how can they be learned?

Are you looking for an expert for a research project on the topic of live online communication – especially on soft skill competences and empathic services such as mediation/ conflict resolution/ negotiation/ coaching and taking into account intercultural aspects?
