Need Help to Communicate Effectively?
Approximately 73%-92% of what we "say" to others is communicated nonverbally. Maybe this is why the emphasis that is placed on our words often leaves us feeling as though we are somehow sending or receiving messages incorrectly. What is being lost in translation is everything that isn't said. This of course can result in misunderstandings and false assumptions, frustration, hurt feelings and even anger.
The good news is that you can increase your fluency in nonverbal communication. Once you learn the nuances of movement, facial and eye expressions, body posture, and silence, you will have the tools to build and negotiate better relationships with family, co-workers, friends, and acquaintances.
