Body Language Essentials for Students – Joe Navarro

Posted on

NGSS_LVNV_TORON780

NextGen School Safety Conference Keynoter Joe Navarro believes students should be exposed to our primary means of communication – body language –at an early age so that they can mature with a skill set that will enhance their personal interactions – and even their safety.  Navarro suggests sharing the following tips with students to help them develop social and interpersonal intelligence:

  • All nonverbal communication (body language) has meaning. Some you may not understand, however it still has meaning.
  • Your brain controls all your physical movements as well as all the faces and gestures you make. You have control over your body and the kinds of messages that your body sends out.
  • Your body language communicates all the emotions that you feel, just as a baby communicates whether she is happy or not.
  • What your body says to me is more accurate than what you verbally say and your body language speaks to me before I hear what you say. Always be aware that I can often tell what you are thinking or feeling before you speak.
  • If your own body ever feels uncomfortable around someone, please let me know so I can help you to understand why you feel that way.

A New York Times bestselling author, Joe Navarro will deliver a plenary session entitled The Power of Nonverbal Communication and a keynote session entitledDangerous Personalities at the NextGen School Safety Conference in Las Vegas.

The 2016 NextGen School Safety Conference is coming to Las Vegas and Toronto as part of 2016 Innovative Schools Summits in each city!  Now in its second year, the NextGen School Safety Conference will focus on a variety of K-12 safety topics including avoiding intruder episodes, preventing student injuries and reducing worker comp claims.
