The Power of Non-Verbal Communication
Season 1, Episode 30
In every relationship exchange are two levels of communication, overt (the spoken word) and covert (the unspoken message). Guess which is more powerful? To become an effective communicator, your covert messages will need to match your overt messages. In this podcast you will be challenged to develop full awareness of the power of unspoken communication, and its impact upon relationships.
Something to Think about
In this episode, we came to understand that:
- Your spoken words are not nearly as impactful as you implied meanings.
- Most efforts to solve problems are unsuccessful when individuals have a low awareness of the implied attitudes that drive words.
- Traits like respect, equality, and acceptance are communicated not by well-chosen words, but by sustained character.
“What covert messages are transmitted in your primary relationships that undermine cooperation?”
