What is nonverbal communication?Nonverbal Communication = Communication without words

Nonverbal communication is a process of communication through sending and receiving wordless messages.

The communication in which the sender uses words to transmit the message to the receiver is known as verbal communication.

The communication that takes place between sender and receiver with the use of signs is known as non-verbal communication.

Difference between verbal & Nonverbal communication

The most important thing in communication is hearing what isn't said. - Peter F. Drucker


Body language is a very powerful tool. We had body language before we had speech, and apparently, 80% of what you understand in a conversation is read through the body, not the words.

Deborah Bull
