I See and Hear What You’re Saying

The subtle and not-so-subtle differences in how we communicate through body language can make or break your next communication. It’s common to misinterpret body language clues when processing them through faulty filters.

Cultural nuances, gender biases, language barriers and social customs all contribute to roadblocks in understanding each other.

Combine that with poor listening skills and it’s a wonder anyone ever communicates. When you accurately read body language and brush-up your listening skills, you will be more successful in all business and personal exchanges.

For business professionals, the question is how to maximize your ability to read what others are thinking and react appropriately to both their words and their actions.

Sharpen your observation and listening skills in this workshop.

You Will Learn

• Powerful tips to read others body language accurately.
• Ways to modify your silent signals to improve communication.
• Discover that feet don’t lie
• Practice the Wonder Woman to feel your power and reduce stress.
• Listening techniques that improve focus.
• Silence and attention pay dividends.
• Questions to use to confirm communication.
