The Magic Behind The Nonverbal
Just like any good magician, we can learn to shape what others see. When communicating there are two conversations going on and the nonverbal components can mesmerize or destroy the show. This interactive program exposes the secrets of effective nonverbal communication and teaches you the skills to implement those tricks to improve your leadership.
What Do People See, When They See You?
Your body is always talking. Telling stories of interest, disinterest, excitement, boredom, anger, confidence and a range of emotions. Do you know how to adjust your posture to reinforce the message you want others to receive? It’s more than words, people’s “vibe” of you is often informed by your body.
What Are Others Trying to Tell You?
We all know that words don’t always match our true feelings. Body language can help us decode the message others are really trying to send. It is a useful tool for listening with our eyes, as well as our ears, in order to best understand our friends, family, coworkers, and clients.
Spellbound is ideal for anyone wanting to understand various body language situations, tendencies, and responses in order to strengthen interpersonal communication.
