Digital Body Language
Have you ever heard of the term “Digital Body Language?”
Before the COVID-19 pandemic, body language was commonly understood as physical gestures and nonverbal ways of communicating. For example, leaders could gauge engagement and check for team understanding by observing how their employees were sitting, where they were looking, and their facial expressions. However, with the shift to communicating and connecting over online platforms such as Google Meet, Zoom, Skype, and Microsoft Teams, we all became foreigners to a new language of nonverbal communication, digital body language.
