We always communicate!
And since body language, voice habit, and the other aspects of nonverbal communication play such a tremendous role for your professional self-presentation we should assign a syntax and word order to it.
The aim of Erik Roßbander’s seminars is the activation of the individual mental, emotional and physical presence in professional life through practical exercises in an empathic and appreciative environment.
„For if our virtues
Did not go forth of us, ´twere all alike
As if we had them not. “ W. Shakespeare
This has got nothing to do with lack of abilities or inabilities!
This is about the experience, awareness and activation of verbal and nonverbal skills in communication.
You always have to bear in mind that a presentation is never a one-way street, since:
A monologue is always a dialogue with a high amount of diverse information such as the seemingly silent audience.
