We all know how important are the first few minutes of a class with a new instructor; we know from research that the few seconds it takes for people to form an opinion about someone else is a critical baseline for how they will be evaluated. How does this research apply to webinars?
If our brains immediately take in a lot of verbal and non-verbal data to instantly make decisions about the likeness or not for an experience or a person, how can we use this knowledge when we do an online class?
The answer lies in a series of online experiential activities and behaviors, that culminates in the creation of an atmosphere where people feel valued, heard and acknowledged. The checklist here is an attempt to identify simple behaviors we can all do to create those winning first impressions online.
I hope this is helpful to you.
