Mastering Slack & Zoom

Odds are that you’re only using 20 percent of their robust features—and not particularly well. Let me help.

The Problem

You’ve got an important presentation or interview. For years, you have felt confident doing either in person.

Unfortunately, these are not normal times.

You’ll have to do the interview or give the presentation virtually—and you don’t know if you should alter your approach, much less how.

To be sure, moving to a remote format presents some challenges. Maybe you have seen firsthand how others fiddle with their settings, come off as amateurs, and lose their audiences from the start.

At the same time, though, it also presents a significant opportunity to distinguish yourself or your company from the competition. Put differently, you want to be as professional, polished, and über-prepared for your Zoom meetings as possible.

And the same holds true for Slack. Maybe you’re using it as E-Mail 2.0. If you are and think that you’re missing out on many valuable features, then trust your instincts. 

The Solution: Personalized coaching from the author of both Slack For Dummies and Zoom For Dummies

I coach professionals and executives on how to get the most out of these tools. Specifically, I do the following:

  • Walk through the tools’ essential settings and features
  • Serve as a honest sounding board
  • Offer specific recommendations on how to present or interview more effectively
  • Maximize the chance that the event goes well
  • Simulate the audience for their group communications, meetings, presentations, or interviews
  • Record our sessions so my clients can watch them at their leisure.
  • And much more

The great playwright George Bernard Shaw once famously said, “The single biggest problem in communication is the illusion that it has taken place.”

Good point.
