Self introductions

Today, we talked about how to introduce ourselves.  About half of the class got up on stage and introduced yourselves.  We all gave feedback on the introductions.  We talked about tone, body language, posture, and mirroring.  We assessed each other on eye contact, whether they took visual cues from the other person, and how engaging the conversation was.  We talked about balancing information about ourselves with asking questions about the other.

Questions for the class:

1. What did we miss?

2. Do you think non-verbal communication is as important as they say it is?

3. What about the use of region to connect with each other?

5. Interpersonal space: how close do you stand?

If any of you have any questions, please post it here.  I will be monitoring the site constantly and will respond.  This will also provide a record for the class.

Thanks
