Nonverbal intelligence

An online or in-person course to excel in nonverbal communication

This course will give you the knowledge and skills needed to understand nonverbal communication and use it effectively in all your interactions. We go beyond the verbal and teach you how to decode the nonverbal messages of yourself and others. Everyone who interacts with people will benefit greatly from this training.The following topics are addressed to give you more confidence, charisma and leadership, every time you meet someone.

  • Foundation: People are complex social creatures, who in their communication make abundant use of nonverbal cues. Why are nonverbal signals so important to us? Where do they originate from? Neuroscience and evolutionary psychology merge to enhance a deeper understanding of nonverbal communication;
  • A great first impression: We cannot stop people from making snap decisions and judgements about us based on our body language. Our brain is hard wired to do so in the first few seconds of a meeting. But we can learn to understand these signals and use them to our advantage. Important trust indicators are addressed, to show others that you are credible, competent and likable. Essential skills for a first meeting in real life and online;
  • Nonverbal power: Insights and skills in nonverbal micro positives, which enhance your confidence and charisma in every interaction;
  • Micro negatives:  Knowledge about and practice in decoding discomfort signals in others and yourself.

Thank you for two fantastic days! The training sessions made me realize that the message I was sending with my body language was not congruent with who I really am. I am now in control of my first impression and are conscious of the signals I display when meeting with others. It is amazing how much more relaxed I am in all my interactions and presentations as this training has given me confidence in what I need to do to show others my warmth and competence. Beside this, I notice the signals of others which give me great insight into their comfort levels. I will definitely join the nonverbal expertise training after this great experience!
