Body language is of huge significance, especially when it comes to non-verbal communication between males and females.

skilled as women when it comes to sending body messages non-verbally to spark up a conversation. Men and women should take pride in learning what makes them unique and different with one another, while finding out the different non-verbal cues that are being delivered.

When a person uses effective communication, he or she succeeds in reaching his or her goal for communicating. When a person is efficient in communicating, he or she gets out the message in the shortest amount of time and with the least amount of energy. To sum, effectiveness deals with a job well-dong; efficiency deals with time. An effective as well as efficient communication goes a long way in promoting proper coordination, establishing strong rapport among employees and motivating employees to maintain a healthy working atmosphere. It leads to minimal conflicts, chaos and communication gap. The type of non-verbal communication is the use of body space, touching behavior or hepatics, body language and the manner of dressing.

The non-verbal communication such as written communication can be re-read because it is more concrete by employees who were unclear about any details (Bauer & Erdogan, n.d).
