Raising Your RQ (Remote Quotient)

We are now living in an exclusively virtual world. This happened fast, and many people are uncomfortable using digital platforms. They may feel exposed and awkward on videoconferences, fail to engage fully on conference calls, or feel disconnected, disoriented, and often depressed while working from home.

In addition, the current volume of communication through familiar channels—phone and email contact—has increased exponentially but not necessarily advantageously. This dynamic seminar, delivered conversationally to encourage participation by Raleigh Mayer, the Gravitas Guru and senior fellow at the Logos Institute for Crisis Management and Executive Leadership, outlines the neuroscience involved in virtual engagement, as well as physical and psychological implications, the importance of performance when communicating with stakeholders, and the impact of organization and tone of content. We are living and working in a virtual world: We must master the culture. Register today!


For one fee of $50 (EBAA Member) or $150 (Non-Member), the entire organization may attend the webinar. After registration, a confirmation email will be sent with a discount code. The contact person who purchased the session should send the discount code to other staff members who may wish to attend the session. The discount code will allow staff to attend remotely for free. 

Note: if an organization has multiple locations, additional registrations must be purchased for each location.

CEU Information

A new CEU process has been implemented. If an individual views the session through their own eyeLEARN account, they simply need to complete the survey on their account to claim credit for the session. If a group of people view the session together in a conference room, then each person should complete the survey listed in the confirmation email to claim CEU credit. 

Important: Whether through eyeLEARN or the survey in the confirmation email, each attendee must complete their own survey to claim credit for the session.
