Language of Leadership – Beyond Words!

Wait. What did you just say? We don’t just talk with words – we talk with our whole bodies. And sometimes we have no idea what we just communicated.

As leaders – it’s essential that we connect with others and congruently communicate so that our message is understood and acted on.

Learning the fine art of nonverbal communication will help raise your EQ (Emotional Intelligence) by building your self-awareness and self-management.  You’ll get the “whole story” by connecting what other people say with their nonverbal body language.  And you’ll be able to build rapport with anyone – even in high pressure situations – so that they are more receptive to your message.

Join us for this hands-on, science-based course to learn & practice non-verbal communication skills essential for effective leadership.  This workshop is ideal for anyone who wants to be a more effective influencer by making sure their nonverbal language matches their words.
