Professional Excellence: Body Language and Communication

This is the third course of a five-part series, A STAR is Born: Becoming a Professional of Excellence. Workplace excellence is defined by the expectations of employees to be:

  • Appropriate, demonstrated by wise judgement and decision-making skills,
  • Believable, demonstrated through competence,
  • Credible, demonstrated through integrity.

The evidence of these skills occurs via the giving, receiving or exchanging of information between individuals. This exchange happens continuously and often unconsciously, in all workplace encounters through body language and communication. Professionals of Excellence (POE) use their body language and communication strategically to create positive lasting impressions and take control of how others see them. The goal of the third course is to provide tips and techniques in "impression management" in the areas of body language and communication.

Learning Objectives:

  • Recognize the key characteristics of impression management.
  • List the ABCs of professional excellence.
  • Identify and differentiate between the five types of language.
