The Art of Body Language


Course introduction

Body language is an unconscious non-verbal communication that relies on body movements like facial expressions, eye contact, tone of voice and gestures. When we think of communication, most of us think almost at once of words or talk. Communication is much more than mere words; we must remember that words are no more than symbols which make possible the transmission of meanings.  About 50% of what we mean and what others say is displayed in body language, which makes it very important to understand the interpretation of body language correctly. 

To be effective, you must utilize communication skills that involve hearing verbal messages, perceiving nonverbal messages, and responding verbally and nonverbally to heard and perceived messages. To ensure that these communication skills become an integral part of your techniques, you must practice them frequently. It is an effective tool to communicate with others and also pick up the signals and signs that are being displayed by them.
