Nonverbal skills are of the utmost importance in the workplace, where a single inappropriate stare can send an employee packing. Drawing on over fifty years of industrial organizational psychology research, we’ve come to a number of definitive conclusions. First, your handshake is crucial. Second, nuanced body language can effectively sabotage the competition. Third, there is a lot more behind nailing a presentation than how pretty your powerpoint is!

Exhibiting a mastery of nonverbal communication skills can be vital to your career. From meetings to interviews, we will discuss various situations, common mistakes, and how to best solve them. When should you nod your head? What should you do with your hands? Is it necessary for a woman to cross her legs? What’s the perfect amount of eye contact?

“Are we on the same wavelength?” It’s the question you’ve asked hundreds of times, and we’ve finally got your answer! Studies show that nonverbal communication plays a crucial part in establishing rapport with your colleagues, friends, and potential suitors. It’s the little things that count: for example, matching another’s gestures, or expressing empathy through specific eyebrow movements. It’s those small details that help foster and maintain long-lasting emotional connections.
You might have a hard time believing that you lie every single day, but studies show that people tell 2-3 lies every 10 minutes.
