7 Ways Asynchronous Communication Builds Trust
by Najette Fellache
An asynchronous meeting is the coming together of worker bees at different times to plan and share ideas for a particular objective. Each participant joins in at their own time and makes their contribution. For effective communication to happen, it must build trust in the platform and between participants. Weet, a video messaging platform, facilitates asynchronous communication. The numerous users resemble worker bees, and their combined contributions are equated to the buzz of a hive.
Asynchronous communication builds trust in the following ways:
1. Injects humanity and empathy
A Weet video message allows participants to add their emotions to their contributions. Facial expressions make the busy bees more at ease as they communicate. Weet has an inbuilt functionality that enables users to add emojis to their communication. Besides, participants can use screencasts and add their emotions as part of the conversation. Weet facilitates emotional buzz with the presence of video and comments.
2. Improves clarity and understanding
Asynchronous communication allows individuals to ask queries, and request clarification which goes a long way to build trust among worker bees. As users buzz, Weet facilitates the users to define the course of action in a matter.
3. Bridges the gap between phone and emails
These two forms of communication were previously the most trusted forms of communication. However, asynchronous communication has a more personal touch, which improves communication. The ability of the worker bees to have an app that integrates emails into a video conversation contributes to the reliability of the conversation.
4. Improves relationships
Asynchronous communication enables participants to be at ease with each other, which significantly goes a long way in fostering meaningful and positive relationships. Also, participants get to share personal experiences, and in the process, people who may never meet physically get to have the opportunity to interact with each other.
5. Rallies a communication culture
A company may have employees spread across different time zones and geographical locations, which can be a challenge when communicating with each other. Weet builds synergies and improves productivity. In most companies, it’s the executives who talk down to their employees, but Weet enables the conversation to be all-inclusive at all department levels.
6. Facilitates quick decision making
The ability to incorporate collaborative work effort with documentation facilitates faster and timely decision making. The quality of a decision is based on having effective communication that is not rushed. An asynchronous Weet enables you to have an opportunity to investigate various options. More so, a decision teams arrive to will be communicated faster (to the desired audience) than any other mode.
7. Communication is all-inclusive
When more people are part of the conversation, it becomes meaningful and productive. When the discussion is exhaustive, the degree of trust significantly raises. Participants can give the input with no coercion which builds more trust.
In conclusion, a video response allows an opportunity to ask questions and add more to the facts and potential work that will be key to securing a contract or a pitch. Besides, Weet enables people within the same group to have different conversations simultaneously.
