Researchers study the role of verbal and non-verbal communication.
Online PR News – 01-August-2011 – – Chicago, IL -- It goes without saying, communication is critical to the success of any organization. Video conferencing proves the best option to achieve effective communication in the absence of physical proximity. The video conference allows the exchange of visual, non-verbal cues which significantly aid in comprehension. Nodding heads, raised eyebrows, crossed arms, eye contact, or lack of, instantly reveals understanding, agreement and integrity.
Researchers have focused studies on the role of verbal and non-verbal communications. Some reports indicate that nearly 80 percent of communication is non-verbal. The most famous study on this subject comes from Dr. Albert Mehrabian, in his “7-38-55 rule”, he concludes that:
• 7 percent of communication comes from spoken words
• 38 percent from the tone of the voice
• 55 percent from body language
In other words, over 50 percent of communication is seen. Email, Webex, and conference calls provide only a limited level of interaction. To optimize understanding and comprehension a human visual element is required, enter the video conference.
