Curso de Comunicación No Verbal

Mejorar nuestra comunicación se está convirtiendo en una cuestión de primer orden. Pero, ¿cómo vamos a mejorar nuestra comunicación si no somos conscientes de cómo comunicamos? La Comunicación No Verbal es una herramienta eficaz a la hora de mostrarnos aquello que hacemos muy bien y también aquellas áreas donde necesitamos mejorar. Siempre nos revela aspectos que nos sorprenden y que es vital que integremos para progresar y desarrollar al máximo todo nuestro potencial, en toda negociación y en toda interacción humana de cualquier índole.
 
Este curso ayudará a los profesionales a ser capaces de percibir en pocos instantes ante qué perfil de persona se encuentran, les da la clave de cómo han de aproximarse y cuál ha de ser su modelo de comunicación más adecuado.
