Communication At the Workplace 2 Abstract The intention of this paper serves to elucidate any already existing beliefs about the benefits of understanding interpersonal nonverbal communication in the workplace. By studying interpersonal nonverbal communication, we can hope to learn more about the information conveyed by people, the intentions of people, and most importantly, the ability to communicate back using the nonverbal needs that every person in a collective place of work shares. This ability becomes more and more necessary when dealing with the work environment. From integral parts of the employment process, to the up to the managerial skills of a full-fledged employee, understanding and demonstrating a supreme knowledge of nonverbal behavior is crucial. Such an understanding will prepare a young adult with strong tools that can set him/her above from his/her peers.

Communication At the Workplace 3 Interpersonal Communication: The Fortitude of Nonverbal Communication in the Workplace From the beginning of acknowledged human interaction, mankind has been receiver and a giver on what seems to be the earliest form of communication: interpersonal nonverbal communication. People who do not share a common language use resort to non-verbal forms communication, such as cavemen, and have used it before establishing set rules of language. Today, children who have not developed communication skills use nonverbal forms for telling communicating with their parents. As these children get older, these nonverbal communications are coupled with forms of verbal communication which is known as a language. Eventually, they mature into young adults who must navigate through their world and by use of interpersonal nonverbal communication; they are better prepared to traverse the road that lies before them. Literature Review What nonverbal behavior most desired in a place of work? Nowadays there is a huge requirement for communication skills in the workforce. As Belohlov, Popp, and Porte (1974) have argued in their research, they have conducted an experiment in which a survey is to provide contemporary business organizations with the opportunity to express their views as to the value and need for communication courses established at the graduate level. The study takes a poll to see how many organizations would like the requirement of new personnel to have a specified minimum of communication skill upon entering the system. In their hopes, this can effectively ameliorate the defection among man and woman on the interpersonal level of communication skills at the workplace. During the study, it was found that out of oral, written, and non-verbal communication skills, many people believed that managers significantly lacked the non-verbal aspect of communication.
