Transcript of Nonverbal Communication

Wordless signals given in the course of our interactions - facial expressions, eye contact, hand gestures, posture, tone, etc.
Why does it matter?
93% of communication is non-verbal

55% body language

38% tone of voice
The 5 Possibilties:
Repetition: You can repeat or mirror the message you are making verbally

Contradiction: You can contradict the message you are trying to convey

Substitution: You can substitute a message

Compliment: You can drive home the verbal point you are intending to make

Accenting: You can punctuate your verbal message
How do we put this in context?
OLs - Your energy and nonverbal communication determines the initial(and often lasting) impression held by incoming students

RAs - Your body language indicates to residents your level of approachability, engagement and authority

We can't be the listeners we want to be if no one will approach us.
