The Nonverbal Advantage - Secrets and Science of Nonverbal Body Language at Work


Carol Kinsey Goman, Ph.D.

Did you know that within the first few seconds of meeting people, they have already formulated their first impressions of you?

Did you know that when your body language is out of alignment with your verbal message people believe what they see and not what you say?

Did you know that your clients and colleagues are constantly telling you what they think and feel – but that it often has nothing to do with the words they use?

Nonverbal communication is more powerful and primitive than verbal expression. The tiniest gesture, like the way people stand or enter a room, speaks volumes about their confidence, self-worth and credibility. And the way you sit, stand or look at others reveals more about your true intent than you may realize.

Evidence from psychology, neurobiology, medicine, sociology, criminology, anthropology, and communication studies has given new credence to nonverbal communication. Our brains are "hard-wired" to respond to nonverbal signals – but that response is almost always subconscious.

This visual, entertaining and interactive session shows how to take an innate (but latent) talent and turn it into a powerful professional skill. You’ll learn:

* How to gain the "seven second advantage" and make a positive first impression.

• The two sets of nonverbal signals that leaders need to project.

* The role of body language in projecting trust and credibility.

* How to decode the silent signals of resistance, interest, and deception.

* The impact of body language in cross-cultural communication.

* * Five tips to more accurately read other people’s body language.
