Effective, conscious communication is an essential skill set for global leaders of any age. The ability to understand perspectives related to nonverbal communication, demonstrate a working ability to read others’ body language, choose an effective physical disposition for a specific context, distinguish your unconscious communication habits from newly emerging conscious communication, and understand your cultural style is fundamental to conducting yourself skillfully in the world. In this course, you will unpack the communication styles you’ve inherited, compose new movement phrases, interpret increasingly subtle nonverbal cues, and synthesize your comprehension of full spectrum communication in a definitive nonverbal narrative across three contexts, using a minimum of twelve specific nonverbal elements.
