Can You Tell Who’s Telling the Truth—And Who’s Not?

A Highlight from the Upcoming NAGC Communications School.

No matter what your actual job title, the degree of career success you enjoy is dictated by how you engage others. If you want to be a highly respected, influential, and successful communicator, learning how people communicate without words is a critical skill. This lively half-day pre-conference workshop will give you practical techniques, tools, and strategies for understanding and using non-verbal communication most effectively—and who couldn’t use a little extra insight when working in government settings?

Trainer Jerry Balistreri will teach you to detect deception in any situation, understand the role of the limbic system in non-verbal communication, and hit the mark with positive communication every time. The skills you learn in this seminar will help you with friends and family at home and colleagues and clients at work.

This four-hour preconference workshop, “Reading the Tells—Learning How to Read Body Language,” will be held April 17, 8:00 a.m. to noon at the 2013 NAGC Communications School, April 16-19 at the Pentagon City Sheraton in Arlington, Va. Check out the complete agenda and register to attend at
