The ability to decipher the difference between engagement and disengagement can ultimately determine the extent to which any human interaction will succeed or fail.

Research has shown that 93 percent of communication is non-verbal.

Intentional and strategic employment of our own non-verbal communication skills ensure that our gestures and body language align with our spoken words, thus creating congruence and generating trustworthiness.

This virtual classroom seminar will explore how the ability to accurately interpret nonverbal cues such as facial expression, body language and tone of voice can help us gain a deeper understanding of others’ motivations and perspectives, and thus improve communication and organisational relationships.

This live and interactive session will cover the following:

  • Relationship between facial expression and emotional effect
