Remote Work and Successful Communication at your Nonprofit

As your nonprofit teams continue to work from home, you might find a communication breakdown - perhaps feeling like you are in the game of telephone. We developed a whitepaper with tips you and your nonprofit teams can implement to help overcome the lack of nonverbal communication that tends to cause conflict while working from home.


Are you familiar with the differences between verbal and nonverbal communication?
VERBAL COMMUNICATION is the information and words you use, and this makes up one-third of the message received
NONVERBAL COMMUNICATION is the tone of voice and body language, and this makes up two-thirds of the message received


One of the best ways our customers overcome these difficulties, especially in this last year, is utilizing Microsoft Teams. Everyone on staff can collaborate on their donor data (from finance to development and beyond), creating the whole picture of their donor since StratusLIVE 365 CRM fully integrates with Teams. They can easily chat with one another via text, voice, or video call to generate an effective development plan while viewing personal dashboards, constituent records, and more. 


Platforms like Microsoft Teams, Zoom, Slack, or the like are on the rise in this All - Digital world. Putting processes in place to help your nonprofit function more efficiently will ensure the success of your organization. 


Check out our whitepaper on Navigating Successful Communications with Remote Working Teams for some suggestions you can make to overcome the lack of in-person nonverbal communication cues.
