The role of non-verbal means in communication becamestudied in psychology relatively recently, but the popularity of these studies today is high. Many businessmen, politicians, and leading workers have learned from their own experience that they need to use nonverbal communication tools in their business communications. The psychology of man is such that he unconsciously supplements his speech with various gestures and facial expressions, expresses negative or positive moods through views, postures, movements. "Reading" this language is sometimes quite difficult, but necessary.

For example, the position and distance between participantscommunication speaks volumes. The face-to-face arrangement of two interlocutors (or the placement of several communication partners in a circle) creates a more trusting atmosphere.
The ability to choose a pose in private conversation, onmeeting, during negotiations is also an important element of communication. Closedness or openness of the person's posture testifies to the attitude towards the interlocutor, the psychological state of the partner, the interest in information.

A smile, shifted brows, compressed jaws, a slightly open mouth, lowered corners of the lips tell the interlocutor of goodwill or aggressiveness, interest or disregard, acceptance or non-acceptance.
However, human eyes are considered the mostinformative in comparison with other non-verbal means of communication. Even a smile can not hide estrangement, and a handshake does not cover the fear that is manifested in the viewer's interlocutor. The communicative abilities of a specialist allow one to only put an end to business communication.
Skillfully using verbal and non-verbal means of communication, a professional allows business communication to take place exactly in the channel that is necessary for effective business.
