Business Communication

How can nonverbal communication help you run a meeting? How can it help you call a meeting to order, emphasize important topics, show approval, express reservations, regulate the flow of conversation, and invite a colleague to continue with a comment?

  1. Nonverbal communication can be a more subtle way of communicating than verbalizing all of your opinions.

    To call a meeting to order, you can stand up to command everyone's attention.

    To regulate the flow of conversation, you can point to people so that they know you are talking to them. (This is most effective when you also say their name, if you know it, but that would be verbal.)

    To encourage a colleague to continue or to show approval, you can nod your head (in a "yes" manner).

    You could write important topics on a chalkboard for emphasis. (I don't know if this is what your teacher is looking for.)

    To express reservations, there is a certain face you can make, but I can't describe it.

    Anyway, I hope that was helpful.
