THE ART AND SCIENCE OF NONVERBAL COMMUNICATION
PRESENTED BY PETER DHU
"What you do speaks so loud that I cannot hear what you say.” – Ralph Waldo Emerson
What do I do with my hands? How should I stand? Should I use the lectern or walk across the stage? What is my facial expression saying about me?
These are the questions that I get asked all of the time.
Body language and non-verbal communication is one of the keys to effective leadership, effective communication and effective presentation skills. Without appropriate body language and other nonverbal communication, the best-crafted message may fall short or you may be seen as not genuine.
The ability to understand, interpret and use effective body language is a skill that will enhance your presentation skills, public speaking and career. Body language is a form of communication, and it needs to be understood and practiced like any other communication skills. Whether in training, facilitation, keynote speaking or everyday communication, it is essential to understand exactly what your own body is saying and communicating to others and what others nonverbal communication is saying to you.
In this workshop, you will learn to:
Read what your body is saying about you
Gesture with confidence and intelligence
Use eye contact appropriately
Use the platform or stage effectively when presenting
Look after your voice and create additional vocal variety and interest.
Demonstrate credibility and approachability and when to use each
Stand confidently and avoid distracting and superfluous gestures
Use the frozen hand gesture
Use breathing and pause to generate suspense and create impact
After this workshop you will have learned the skills of effective and appropriate body language that you can use every day to be a more effective communicator.
You will be able to use skillful and appropriate body language in everyday communications, meetings, and job interviews and of course, in your presentation and public speaking skills.
**This workshop can be customised to meet your organizational training needs and the key learning outcomes set to match your requirements. It can be delivered in a full-day or half-day format. Two or more of our different workshops can be combined to form a two-day masterclass.
