About Nonverbal communication
Every single person has a unique nonverbal brand; all your nonverbal expressions that tell people exactly what to think of you. You portray this brand in person, on the phone, and even in your online profile. And people listen. With their ears and eyes. From the very first impression onwards. Your nonverbal signals make up an enormous part of your interaction. Not being aware of it is like ignoring a huge communication potential!
Understand your body language
Your hand gestures, body posture, and facial expressions are far more important than you might think. Before you speak a single word, others have determined how credible, confident and trustworthy you are. And when your words and body language don’t match, people believe what they see, not what they hear.
Your ability to read the nonverbal communication of yourself and others accurately is the foundation for building great relationships. This way you can tune into the emotions you feel and see and really connect to others. An essential skill in your personal and professional life.
We are here to guide you through the intriguing world of nonverbal communication so you can use this knowledge to your full advantage!
