My guest on ControlTalk Now this week is Tom Joslin. Tom is one of the control pros with a newer smart building control vendor, 75F.
75F is a leading provider of building automation solutions that are designed to optimize energy consumption, improve indoor air quality, and enhance occupant comfort in commercial buildings. Using a vertically integrated and IoT-based wireless system, 75F's technology can analyze and control existing HVAC equipment and systems to achieve greater efficiency and cost savings. With sophisticated algorithms running in the cloud, the system can make micro-adjustments every 60 seconds to ensure optimal performance, and each customer site receives roughly 150,000 individual decisions each day. With a focus on sustainability, affordability, and customer satisfaction, 75F is revolutionizing the way businesses manage their buildings and reduce their carbon footprint.
In addition to my interview with Tom, I explain another nonverbal communication technique, mirroring. Mirroring is a subconscious behavior that is used to establish rapport and influence others. In essence, it involves adopting another person's posture, breathing patterns, and speed of speaking. Mirroring can help to build trust and strengthen relationships when used judiciously. I discuss how mirroring works in this episode.
