You’ve been working late and you just finished a big report that you sent off to your boss. And you received a one word reply back - "Thanks (period)." How does that make you feel? 

More and more of our communication takes place online - but our online language is not something we’ve learned. It’s still a new medium.

Today, we talk about digital body language with author, Erica Dhawan . 

We want to hear from you. Do emojis belong in a work email? How can you make your best first impression, through zoom?!
