  • Today’s Changing Work Environment
    • Informal and Spontaneous Communications
      • 92% of interactions are informal
      • 52% of interactions are unintended
    • Collaborative Teams Becoming More Widespread
      • 7 out of 10 people work virtually
      • 1 out of every 3 managers are in a different location than at least some members of their team
      • Close to a hundred million U.S. workers are expected to telework by 2010
    • Workers get 50%-70% of their information from other people, but now work with more people in more locations

  • Productivity Barriers in a Global Economy
    • Time it Takes to Build Trust in the Electronic Communication World
    Electronic Collaboration Will Drive 30 to 50% of Next Decade’s Productivity Time it Takes to Communicate a Message Electronically vs. Face-to-face Sources: Cisco Pearn Kandola-The Psychology of Effective Business Communications in Geographically Dispersed Teams 2006 4 Times Longer 2 Weeks
  • The Importance of Visual Interaction A Person Remembers…
    • Importance of Visual Traffic
      • 30% of brain’s cortex devoted to vision, 3% for hearing
      • More than 60% of communication is non-verbal
