Body Language 101 / How You Move Speaks Volumes
Dan Edwards, DJ Edwards Group LLC

Summary of Program Description:

BODY LANGUAGE 101….Because Words Can Lie, Body Language Doesn't!

Experience Body Language 101, insightful methods of time-tested techniques on how to display and effectively read body language...in ANY situation!

How YOU Move Speaks Volumes!
Research shows that a person makes up their mind about you in the first tenth of a second.

Don’t Make CRUCIAL Social Mistakes!
* When is the best time to shake some ones hand?
* How close should you stand to someone while conversing?
* Where’s the best place to sit during a business meeting?

As a professional radio disc-jockey and TV anchor I have had thirty years of professional talent coaching from some of the industry’s best. Combined with that experience and my extensive research, I’ve developed specific body language techniques to maximize your impact and image in any setting.

My informative, inter-active Body Language 101 sessions will show you how to move with confidence, focusing on sending positive body messages while picking-up on their subtle body cues, allowing you to share your message more efficiently and effectively!

You NEVER get a second chance to make that first impression!

Research shows that 93% of inter-personal communication is non-verbal. Are you listening to their message, and more importantly, are they getting yours?

Can’t We All Just Get Along?!
Robin Throckmorton, MA, SPHR,President, strategic HR, inc.

Summary of Program Description:

With five generations now in the workplace, each having different values and ideals, an awareness and understanding of generational differences is crucial to minimizing conflict, increasing teamwork, and learning how to leverage each person’s strengths to contribute to the bottom line.

A roll of the eyes from a coworker affects every one of us differently. Some of us will ignore it, while others might challenge a coworker who does it. Whatever our approach towards disagreement, all too often the end result is arguing, avoidance of coworkers, morale issues, lower productivity, turnover...or worst of all - lawsuits!

All this over generational differences? Absolutely.

Wouldn't it be great if we could all just get along? We can if we understand each other better. We can if we recognize that each generation communicates differently.

Presentation Learning Objectives:

1. Get an overview of the five generations in the workplace.
2. Learn the different preferred communication styles of each generation.
3. Gain an understanding of how to approach conflict positively with each generation.
