 NON VERBAL COMMUNICATION

WHILE WEARING A FACE COVERING

"lessons learned so far, and considerations for the future"

These affordable and informative 90 minute online micro training sessions are designed to provide insightful and relevant training topics to a wide spectrum of industry professionals with the objective of enhanced reopening and returning to normal operations in the post COVID-19 era. The past year revealed how much people subconsciously rely on being able to see someone's mouth in everyday communications. Once that part of the face was obscured by a protective mask, determining mood, intention, subtle social cues, smiling and frowning became difficult, sometimes leading to miscommunications or confusing exchanges. This webinar focuses on how to use non-verbal communications as successful strategies for communicating in a mask to avoid misunderstandings and create positive interactions.
