APEGS Spring PD Days – Time Talks and Space Speaks

March 29 @ 8:30 am - 11:30 am

This 3-hour seminar talk will introduce you to the main concepts of nonverbal communication. By developing an understanding of the power of nonverbal communication, you can learn to recognize and respond appropriately to the unspoken messages that surround you in your workplace. Learn how to apply this understanding to improve both how you present yourself professionally and how you understand your colleagues, your supervisors, and your subordinates. We will look at how we send messages through our use of space and what we are saying with the way we use time.

This course will be hosted on the Microsoft Teams Platform. Meeting links will be sent on March 24, 2023.

Certificates of Attendance will be issued to full attendance participants.  This course is eligible for Formal Activity CPD credit and is subject to the APEGS PD Days Pricing Policy.
