Non-verbal Communication for Scientists and Researchers

Learn what people are saying with their non-verbal communication and learn how to be more aware of what you are saying without saying a word.

About this course

Sometimes, what you say without words speaks volumes…

Before we engage with others, we often consider what we want to say, but we rarely think about our body language and non-verbal communication. Research shows that our non-verbal communication has a significant impact on what people understand, the impression we make, and how successful we are getting our message across.

This workshop can be run as a half- or full-day learning event and is designed to help participants  understand what non-verbal communication is, how to recognize it, how to control it, and how to use it to build rapport, validate customers, and be more persuasive in all aspects of their lives.

In this interactive workshop, you will learn to:

  • Understand the range of non-verbal behaviours that we call ‘body language’
  • Understand the nuances of handshakes and touch
  • Understand how your personal style influences your body language
  • Match body language to words
  • Know how to read facial expressions
  • Interpret common gestures
  • Interpret eye contact
  • Understand power poses
  • Become aware of the differences in body language across cultures
