Expert Body Language Tips to Help You Read the Room

Speaker: Melinda Marcus, Certified Master Instructor in Nonverbal Communications and author of “Read the Zoom”

According to research, at least 60% of communication is nonverbal, yet most people are only focused consciously on the verbal communications. This program will use photos and video examples of nonverbal signals that will give leaders a major advantage when meeting in-person or virtually.

Key Takeaways:

  • Uncover what people are really thinking and feeling by reading their nonverbals
  • Pick up subtle changes in relationship dynamics among people in your meeting
  • Recognize unspoken objections before they stop you
  • Fast-track trusting business relationships by building empathy
  • Recognize nonverbal signals associated with hidden agendas or deception
  • Pick up positive signals that tell you when to ask for the decision 
  • Leverage pro tips on how to have more influence in virtual meetings
