UPDATE: Watch the impressions follow up video on here.

On the recent podcast video below, we unboxed the Eye to Eye Cam 3 and we delved into the significance of maintaining eye contact during online mediations. In this digital era, where virtual interactions have become a norm, understanding the nuances of non-verbal communication is crucial. Here are some points on why conflict resolution professionals should remember to take seriously where they look when working with parties in conflict:

  1. Eye contact builds trust, improves understanding, and fosters a sense of connection, even through a screen.
  2. Mediators can simulate eye contact in a virtual environment and overcome the virtual barrier of their screens. With simple camera positioning and lighting, mediators can help their parties feel they’re being heard and listened to.
  3. Maintaining eye contact makes your communication more effective. It enhances listener engagement and ensures your message is conveyed clearly. In other words, it makes you seem present despite the physical distance.
  4. Common problems like “Zoom screen fatigue” and distractions already make one not want to stare at a screen a day. Any tool that can help focus one’s eye to their counterpart on a screen will go a long way to mitigating these problems.

Whether you’re a seasoned mediator or just starting out, we all need to improve our virtual communication skills. Take stock in how you communicate online and help your clients and parties get the benefit seeing your eyes.
