-Time: Employees wait on managers for meetings, interviews, and more. (What's the longest time you've waited for a higher up?)

-Faster replies = improved credibility and reliability
External Factors with Customers
-Environment: With a well-designed area, expressions on customers can increase positively. This influences gestures, attitudes and their experience!

-Time: The longer a guest spends time at the business, employees have more time to understand and interpret nonverbal communication to cater to needs!

-Faster Service = Better Business
-Different cultures use different forms of nonverbal communication and interpret it differently. (Eye contact can be interpreted differently)

Kinesics with Coworkers
-Body Positioning (Know what type of message you are sending, and how it can be interpreted)

-Eye Contact

-Monitoring use of Gestures (Does everyone remember what Illustrators are?)

Individual Factors with Customers
-Tone of voice affects how warm, and receptive you are! (Smile when speaking on the phone)

-Making physical contact with your customers (A touch on the shoulder, may result in a better tip! Experiences anyone?)

-Dress to impress your guest! (So are uniforms better than this new trend we are heading in as professional-casual?)
Thank You! :)
