Communication Behind the Mask: Nonverbal at Work

      Nonverbal communication, as we know, is an important part of communication as a whole, especially here at ACC. We will discuss and practice many aspects of nonverbal communication at work, including how it’s changed in recent times due to mask-wearing. Please have your cameras turned on during the session, as we will be practicing these skills through (hopefully fun) activities and discussions.
