Avoid Pitfalls in Non Verbal Communication

  1. 1. Avoid Pitfalls<br />In <br />Non-Verbal <br />Communication<br />
  2. 2. Picture This<br />You are preparing for an interview. <br />You have been through all the technical information related to your field. <br />You have researched the company’s background. <br />You have even brushed up on your general knowledge.<br />So, are you thoroughly prepared to face the interview panel?<br />
  3. 3. What about keeping<br />a check on your <br />Non-Verbal<br />Communication?<br />
  4. 4. Things to Know<br />Your interview begins even before you say your first word <br />As the interviewer walks toward you to shake hands, an opinion is already being formed<br />As you wait to answer questions you've prepared for, you are being judged on your appearance, posture and smile<br />
  5. 5. The Handshake<br />
  6. 6. The handshake should be firm,<br /> not bone-crushing<br />Shake From Your Elbow<br />Hand should be dry and warm<br />Do Not Use a Forceful Grip<br />Pump Your Hand Only 2-3 Times<br />
  7. 7. Posture<br />
  8. 8. Stand and sit erect<br />Erect posture conveys energy and enthusiasm<br />Slouching conveys tiredness and carelessness<br />
  9. 9. Eye Contact<br />
  10. 10. Maintain eye contact with the interviewer<br />Avoid constantly looking around the room while you are conversing with the interviewer<br />Looking around can convey nervousness or a lack of confidence in what is being discussed. <br />Eye contact – confidence, is the only aspect of your interview apart from what you say and write that you can be assessed on<br />
  11. 11. Don’t Fidget<br />
  12. 12. Fidgeting is a clear sign of restlessness<br />You don’t want to come across as restless in any interview<br />It is very annoying for interviewers to see candidates playing with their hair, clicking pen tops, tapping feet or unconsciously touching parts of the body. <br />
  13. 13. Preparing what you have to say is important, but practicing how you will say it is imperative.<br />The nonverbal message can speak louder than the verbal message you're sending.<br />65% of all information in speech is not in the words but in non-verbal communication <br />The same thing holds for 90% of all<br /> ‘emotional’ information.<br />
