How to Communicate More Effectively in an Audio Conference Call
An Audio conference call brings a group together in a virtual conference room It’s an efficient way to collaborate, but there are some communications challenges in a voice-only environment. Use the tips below to communicate more effectively in an audio conference.
It’s hard to know who’s speaking at any given time, so get in the habit of announcing yourself and addressing others by name. For example, you might say, “Chris Peterson, here. I have feedback on…” or “Sandra, what do you think about…”
As the leader of the conference call, you are setting an example. By announcing yourself, you’re helping other attendees recognize who’s speaking as well as modeling the behavior you’d like them to adopt. As other attendees contribute to the conversation, they’ll be more likely to announce themselves, too.
Speak Clearly and Naturally on an Audio Conference Call
You might have a script or an outline to keep you on track, but it’s important to sound natural and authentic. It’s also important for other callers to be able to understand what you’re saying, so make sure to speak as clearly as possible. A few tips to help include:
- Use simple, easy-to-understand words rather than fancy ones, acronyms, or jargon. This is especially important on international audio conferences as many of your participants might not understand slang. For example, rather than saying “What’s the ballpark on this?” you could say, “What is the estimated cost?”
- Enunciate, focusing on all the syllables of your words. It’s common to mumble and drop syllables or sounds in speech, for instance, saying “goin’” rather than “going.” Without the benefit of visual cues, mumbled phrases and poorly enunciated words are much more difficult to decipher in an audio conference.
- Use a natural tone and volume. With today’s advanced telephone technologies, sound clarity is much improved — even with global calls. There’s no need to speak in a louder-than-normal voice. Pretend you’re speaking to someone in the same room.
- Sit up straight, or even stand, when speaking. This allows you to breathe properly and can help your voice to sound stronger and more clear. Even though no one will see you, consider using hand gestures as you speak as this can help you sound more confident.
