How to Read and Speak Body Language

Erving Goffman once noted that whenever humans encounter one another there is an exchange of information, some of which is "given" and some of which is "given off." Some of the latter lies in our body size and shape and the style of our clothes, but a lot more of is found in the flood of subtle signals we broadcast, mostly unconsciously, by the way we tilt our head, move our hands, breath, laugh, make eye contact, and stand. In this workshop we'll learn about how to read the body language of others and how to temper our own behavior so we are sending signals that are consistent with the overt and explicit messages we want to communicate when we meet people, work on teams, and give presentations.
