You Don’t Say:Navigating Nonverbal Communication Between the Sexes

Most of the ways men and women communicate with one another on a date, at home or in the workplace has nothing at all to do with their linguistic talents. In "You Don’t Say", Dr. Nelson explores the hidden, nonverbal meanings in our interactions with the opposite sex—a truer, more accurate indicator of our emotions than speech. This presentation is based on her book by the same title published by Prentice Hall 2004.

  • 93% of the message is conveyed through nonverbal cues: facial expressions,eye contact, touch, gestures, proximity and so on.
  • I wish Women had a Bar code on their head!
  • It’s the Elephant in the Middle of the Room
  • Despite all that’s been written, men and women are still missing each other. Failures in reading and sending nonverbal messages can:

    1. Impede career progress
    2. Mar relationships
    3. Confuse family interactions
    4. Aggravate daily transactions
    5. Be costly to our health and financial well-being

  • Subliminal cues that can cause confusion and dissension and ultimately interfere with women and men’s sense of well-being.
  • Make conscious potentially self-destructive behaviors that both genders exhibit everyday on an unconscious level.
  • Illuminate behaviors that can be mystifying to both sexes.
