Too often we think that communication is limited to when we speak.
In fact people are watching us and our body language and are forming opinions about who we are.
You may be speaking and yet you are communicating non-verbally. What does this photo say to you? What is this person's attitude?
We may be talking on the phone, but others are watching us. We may be frustrated with the person on the phone and roll our eyes, or throw our hands up. We may even throw a pencil. What are we communicating to those who are watching us?
People watch us all the time and they are forming opinions about what kind of a person we are. They are trying to decide if they want to work with us, can they trust us.
If they see some of our actions as we are engage with others, do they wonder if we will treat them the same?
It can make a big difference if we become aware of our non-verbal communications. Ask yourself: What do other people see when they watch me?
