Communication and body language

This workshop is about the role of verbal and non-verbal communication. The goal is to develop an awareness of how communication and body language work. Various exercises are used to reflect on one’s own communication and body language, and awareness is raised of behavioral aspects in an intercultural context. In addition, different aspects are tested, such as active listening and the (im-) precision of language.

The 1.5-hour workshop of the project DiAA – Democracy in Work and Education takes place in presence and can be integrated into the block lessons at a vocational school. The workshop is free of charge. There are no travel expenses for the speakers.
