Put Those Words Back in Your Mouth – Video

This is it! This is the final post of our listening series, and what a better way to end it then to talk about nonverbal communication! So go grab a coffee or tea, maybe a snack and sit back and enjoy the video.

Yes, you have homework. Go to a busy place, and people watch (one of my favourite things to do). What are they speakers doing? What are the listeners doing? What takeaways do you have for your own nonverbal communication? Then report back to me, I want to hear what you’re learning about yourself!
