Reading the Tells: Learning How to Read Body Language
Jerry Balistreri, BS, MS, MEd, DTE

You are in deep conversation with a fellow co-worker, student or your boss. Suddenly, they begin to rub their chin. Are they agreeing with you, processing your conversation, signaling they are in control or do they just have an itch?

Nonverbal communication (NVC) has been studied in academia since the 1950’s. A pioneering study at UCLA indicated that up to ninety-three percent of communication effectiveness is determined by nonverbal cues. Even some of the latest research on “bullying” suggests that students would be less targeted by bullies if they could master three factors identified by researchers, all of which have to do with the ability to properly identify and react appropriately to non-verbal.

The understanding and application of nonverbal communication are useful for everyone, both professionally and personally. NVC goes hand-in-hand with the importance of mastering good communication skills for effectiveness in the workplace, school, home, personal relationships, during recreation, and virtually all aspects of life. So the question remains: despite the great importance placed on NVC, why is it the study of NVC is absent from public school education and only selectively available at the post-secondary level?

Take advantage of a unique opportunity to learn from Jerry Balistreri, a NVC expert who also brings his 25 years of experience in education into the discussion.

This powerful training seminar gives you practical techniques, tools, and strategies for understanding and using non-verbal communication for the highest impact and effectiveness. Become a highly respected, highly influential, and highly successful communicator! Whether you are a teacher, counselor, nurse, principal, supervisor, or administrator, the degree of career success you enjoy is virtually dictated by your skills in communicating with others on the job.
