Verbal and Non-verbal Best Practices

It’s been said over and over that what matters isn’t what you say so much as how you say it.  And perhaps more importantly, it’s understood that not only how you say something, but the total package of non-verbal cues that accompany your message, is the thing that sells an idea through (or kills it!).

In business, our reputations matter greatly. Being able to project a confident, intelligent and resourceful attitude in and out of the office can contribute greatly to one’s ability to sell concepts, products and services internally and externally. A huge part of such confidence comes from being able to quickly interpret verbal communication as well as non-verbal communication like body language, facial expression, and movement.

 

If you’ve mastered the art of reading verbal and non-verbal communication, consider taking your skills to the next level. Being confident in the art of verbal and non-verbal communications is an increasingly important skill, and strong teachers of the skill are needed in tech-friendly cities all over the world.  We offer such a course, as part of our “Become a Corporate Trainer: A Training for Trainers Who Care About Soft Skills”, taking place in Taipei, Taiwan, September 12 – 16, 2018.  The course covers not only verbal and non-verbal best practices, but also covers international business etiquette and ways to build a brand that has impact. This new course is part of the International Soft Skills Testing Accreditation, or ISSTA, which provides a universal standard of professional soft skills in all industries.

Some folks excel at reading verbal signals; others are stronger at the non-verbal. Helping clients determine where their strengths lie and where they need to improve will help them in everything they do in life!

 

So, tell us, what do you think is the most important non-verbal trait to observe at an industry conference? We’d love to know your thoughts!

Teach Others How to Dine Like a Lady?

At some point, we’ve all been there. Sitting at a business luncheon, someone places their arms on the table, rattles all the plates and silverware and makes a loud spectacle of eating their meal. Viewing such a scene in the film “Pretty Woman” would be hysterical.. but in real life, sitting at such a table – where you’re trying to focus on business and relationship building – is less than ideal.

 

We all learn how to do things differently.  Our parents, mentors, and teachers show us how to eat, talk, drive a car, and be present in the world. In this age of hyper-competitive business, norms have been developed to allow participants to socialize while working at the same time. Workers, younger and older, crave proper training for different situations so that they stand out for the right reasons, and not the wrong ones!

If you’ve mastered the art of formal dining, consider taking your skills to the next level. Being confident in the art of formal business dining is an increasingly important skill, and well-equipped teachers are needed in tech-friendly cities all over the world.  We offer such a course, as part of our “Become a Corporate Trainer: A Training for Trainers Who Care About Soft Skills”, taking place in Taipei, Taiwan, September 12 – 16, 2018.  The course covers not only formal business dining, but it also covers international business etiquette and ways to build a brand that has impact.
