Body Language, Communication, and Professional Excellence
Body language and facial expressions play a tremendous role in all communication interactions. The ways individuals use their bodies to communication or support a message has a direct impact on how people perceive each other, the messages received, and the ways in which people relate to each other in personal and public interactions. In this session, we will discuss the various types of body language (nonverbal communication), the different functions of body language, and why body language is important in a variety of communication acts.
Bridge the Gap
Bridge the Gap, a fun, experiential exercise, will help you build unity within your organization. Within any organization, there are customers and suppliers. People often struggle to see the entire system in their own “job” and the immediate needs of their subgroup. They miss seeing their vital role within the entire organizational team.
The symptoms are obvious: distrust, self-serving behavior, self-filling prophesies and missed or broken commitments. The external results are compromised quality, reduced productivity, reduced capacity and poor customer service.
The Setup: You are traveling through dangerous terrain. Tangling alliances with untrusting princesses, armed librarians, seemingly jovial pirates, stoic professors and other assorted enemies make it difficult to interact freely. You wade through this quagmire of miscommunication, misunderstanding and mistrust, all stemming from cultural differences, in the hope of reaching the bridge to the promised land of collaboration and consensus. However, along the way you must contend with petty jealousies, territorial disputes, intellectual rivalries, and even a few precarious truces established on the matrimonial altar.
Bridge the Gap actively demonstrates how communication and collaboration are the cornerstones to consensus and a dynamic work environment. To reach this optimum atmosphere, teams must demolish outdated grudges and damaging suspicions. Bridge the Gap shatters perceptions and preconceived notions to demonstrate the power of collaborating in an organizational team. You will be surprised as you acquire and sharpen skills in result-focused teamwork, objective and data-driven collaboration, and open and productive communication, all with an eye to achieving the ultimate goal- becoming united as one people.
The gaps have been exposed and the learning journey has begun. It is time to address how the gaps from the exercise relate to the gaps in your organization. Do you have an idea of these shortcomings? We can recommend a specific course, such as focusing on conflict resolution, effective communication or working in a diverse environment, to correct these limitations. Do you need help identifying your specific needs? Bridge the Gap will reveal the areas we can then help you address.
