What is Synchronous Communication?
Synchronous communication happens when people interact in real-time. Most meetings include a dedicated time for synchronous communication.
Other examples of synchronous, or "real-time" communication include:
- Phone calls
- Bumping into someone and talking to them
- Dinner conversations
- Talking to your kids while driving them around
- Texting back-and-forth with your partner
- And any other time you spend in active conversation with other people.
