Program Description

Because 93% of communication is nonverbal, according to Albert Mehrabian’s 7-38-55% rule, the Business Communication Academy (BCA) decided to help you master nonverbal communication by offering you its Body Language in the Workplace program.

This program, along with its theoretical and practical parts, introduces you to body language, its various sub-categories, its leakages and incongruence, and how it is interpreted differently across cultures. 

Since effective body language is almost entirely ignored in companies; yet, is extremely vital and can highly affect your job, BCA provides you a few tips on how to properly communicate nonverbally in the workplace or during your job interview. 

This program can help you identify the body language mistakes you don’t realize you make when interacting with different people as well as understand others’ nonverbal messages. 

Being knowledgeable in this field is essential to every business leader or employee especially that it guarantees to maintain good relationships with your boss and colleagues from the same or different cultures, ameliorate your performance with the staff or various clients; thus, ensuring a better work atmosphere.
