Moving Toward Better Communication: The Body Doesn't Lie

Moving Toward Better Communication:  The Body Doesn't Lie

Popular science confirms that 93% of daily communication is non-verbal.  When we interact with others, we continuously give and receive wordless signals.  If you want to become a better communicator and collaborator, it’s important to gain awareness not only of the body language and non-verbal cues of others, but also of your own.  Participants will be led through fun and engaging exercises that increase the skill of interpreting non-verbal cues.  There are no tricks.  This cannot be faked.  Real people, effectively communicating honest and original messages, are critical to creating successful and innovative collaborations.

“I cannot express in words the impact of your program yesterday afternoon…this event will be difficult to surpass!”
