Nuts and Bolts of Image
This module raises awareness of an essential business skill and its powerful role in interpersonal relations. Attendees learn the most-effective visual messages, the resulting interpretations, and the psychology behind them.
Nonverbal Messaging Made Easy
We speak loudly with our body, but unfortunately, most nonverbal cues are sent unwittingly. Research shows that no less than 55% of interpersonal interaction is nonverbal! This session brings attention to our physical communication – the very first language we ever learned. Though many of us have forgotten its power, the nonverbal remains our most reliable form of communication. When used with skill and awareness, it has the immense potential to reinforce our verbal message with strength and clarity.
Professional Wardrobe in a Casual World
It has become increasingly difficult to dress appropriately for the modern workplace. One employer’s norm, is another’s faux pas. In this module, various levels of workplace dress are defined and visually presented. We discuss how to communicate a personal brand with “message dressing,” and the practicalities of building an effective, transitional wardrobe on any budget. Participants learn what to wear to the office versus what to wear to a client meeting – making the distinction between professional casual and undeniably professional attire. Instead of telling your group what to do, I show them with a fun, hands-on demonstration using real garments (no fashion police allowed!)
