Maximising virtual tools

0.25 CPD Units Online
Today, a majority of our communication is mediated by technology, which of course is definitely true when working within a virtual team. As you know, when you work virtually, technology is an integrated part of getting work done, including how we talk to and interact with each other. Therefore, it’s essential you and your team clearly know what technology is available to you, as well as know how to use it. Of course actually using it is helpful too. As a leader, your role in the use of technology is essential. As Wayne mentioned in the Introduction video, the number one reason technology is successfully adopted or not, is due to whether the team’s leader actively uses the technology. So what you do matters, and it matters a lot. 

By completing this course, you will increase your ability to use the tools available to manage others remotely.

Nonverbal communication

0.25 CPD Units Online
Good communication is the foundation of any relationship, including our professional relationships. It’s certainly true we communicate all day long, both with and without words. In fact, the majority of messages we give are nonverbal. This includes our body language, facial expressions, gestures, and eye contact. In any work situation, the ability to understand and use nonverbal communication is a necessary skill. It can help you build relationships with others, express your thoughts clearly, and help you navigate difficult or challenging situations.

This course will help you begin to strengthen your nonverbal actions by evaluating ten communication events. This evaluation period will give you an idea of what you’re doing well and what you need to improve. In addition, by paying attention to your nonverbal behaviours, you’ll be more conscious of what you’re doing, and as a result will naturally start to develop your capabilities. By completing this course, you will be able to monitor and improve your nonverbal communication actions.

Notional estates

1.5 CPD Unit Videocast    
The notional estate provisions of the Succession Act confer powers on the Court that enable it to nullify attempts by a deceased to frustrate family provision claims. They have been in force for over 33 years, yet there remains a need for guidance as to the way a potential notional estate claim can be evaluated.

This presentation examines the legislation and the way it has been applied. The objective is to facilitate a better understanding of the provisions and their likely application, especially in novel or seldom trodden circumstances.
