Nonverbal Communication: “The Hidden Message” *

In face-to-face communication, body language accounts for more than two thirds of the impact of your message. It is always more emotionally revealing and always more emotionally accurate than what we say. In this session, we will learn ways to enhance body language as well as how to understand the hidden messages sent by others. We will examine first impressions, consider how rapport is established, and look at projecting personal power. Learn how your appearance, posture, gesture, facial expression, eye contact, voice, touch and even smell impact your face-to-face communication. Special attention is given to gender differences and how they may account for misunderstanding.  

About the presenter: Bill Acheson is an expert in nonverbal communication. As a faculty member of the Department of Communication at the University of Pittsburgh for over 20 years and as a professional speaker since 1994, Bill has spoken to thousands of people across the United States about how to use body language to communicate more effectively.

Are you interested in the various mysteries of the mind, the fields of alternative and holistic healing, theories about the connections of body and spirit, or intriguing archaeological findings that don’t fit existing historical research? If you are enticed by those subjects and are interested in “alternative” ways of looking at the world, you should join Readings in Alternative Everything, our newest book discussion group. This group is facilitated by Richard Kajuth, former educational consultant and lifelong student of esoteric inquiry and Eastern philosophy.
