Chris Hester will be giving a TCUK19 workshop on “Jack Denies, Ten Implies: The Power of Nonverbal Communication”.
Nowadays, we are so mindful about the words we speak that we forget what our physical presence is saying. Recognizing our nonverbal communication is particularly important for those of us who participate in video calls. Do our facial expressions and gestures support our words? How can we use others’ nonverbal cues to inform what we need to say or do?
In this workshop, we’ll discuss the rhetoric and types of nonverbal communication, as well as learn techniques for identifying and improving our nonverbal communication skills. Participants will discover how nonverbal communication can facilitate productive conversations and form stronger connections.
