This workshop combines the proven strategies for working with adult learners with humor, interaction, real life examples, multi-media presentation and the buzz of activity to develop the understanding of the power of nonverbal communication.  Interwoven with current research, this workshop will develop the skills of professionals in all forms of communication.
