Jordan Wagner and Stay Metrics CEO, Tim Hindes, for the first in a series of 90-minute virtual workshops – Nonverbal Communication: We are Always Communicating – set for 1 p.m. ET Thursday October 8.

Participants will learn the uniqueness of nonverbal communication (NVC) and how it is knowingly and unknowingly lived out in our daily lives, tips and coaching on improving individual NVC successes at work and inside of at home scenarios, and how to recognize NVC cues with accuracy. Pointed and practical learning opportunities based upon research are abundant in this session and as always, plenty of self-awareness and humorous events emerge; by design.

Key takeaways from this workshop:

  • How to read and interpret Nonverbal Communication (NVC) in a Zoom environment; and
  • Tools for communicating in a virtual world.
