The 40 |20 Seminars in Communication Ethics


How non-verbal communication, ie gestures, body position, eye movements affect our usual communication?

We intend to discuss the relevance of the implicit and invisible dimensions of the communication process. In order to effectively communicate, in fact, one must at least be informed about their relevance.

Is it really possible to guess the thought of our interlocutor, starting from her/ his eye movements? Why, sometimes, even though you employ thousands of words, there is a feeling that reaching a shared synthesis is practically impossible?

The two seminars will be carried out through the innovative formula 40 | 20: 40 minutes of content, 20 minutes of debate.
