Nonverbal Communication Skills Blogs

Non-verbal communication means Voice tones and body language.

Voice tones are the musical elements of your voice.

Body language relates to the visual aspect of your communication: what you look like, as you speak.

Voice tones includes the following elements:

  • The volume of your speech
  • The rate of your speech
  • The pitch of your voice
  • The emphasis
  • The rhythm of your speech
  • Your accent

Body language is the visual aspect of your communication and includes the following subsets:

  • Posture. How you sit or stand
  • Dress code
  • Touch. (including handshake)
  • Hand gestures
  • Arm gestures
  • Facial expressions
  • Eye contact, (or lack of it)
  • Orientation
  • Proximity
  • Scent
  • Accessories. (Props and accessories)

All the above is worthy of your study since each one of them are a component of the whole. If you improved each one, then your body language and voice tones would be almost perfect.

When you are judging the non-verbal communication of other people you can use the above list as a guide to your thinking.
