The Doctor of Subliminal Communication

Dr. Jeffrey Atwood is known for his expertise in nonverbal communication. He is well aware of subliminal messages often sent nonverbally without our awareness. It is these messages that he helps managers and business leaders control and understand for more effective management. He is a board certified hypnotist by the National Guild of Hypnotists and works effectively with the subconscious mind to improve nonverbal and subliminal communication that managers and employees may not even be aware of in their business communication.

Frequently blamed on “Personality differences” nonverbal and subliminal communication may, in fact, be the cause and be easily corrected.

Jeff works with managers and executives to determine the signs of mixed messages, the symptoms of poor communication, and other signals that are subliminal, not in their conscious awareness, when they verbally communicating to others. After a diagnostic process he goes to work with the individual to coach them through understanding how to improve their nonverbal communication skills. This includes working with them one-on-one to focus awareness and practice nonverbal behavior that enhances the communication process rather than distracts from it.

Dr. Atwood, may benefit any organization that needs clear communication without mixed messages and hidden meanings

A former radio announcer, Dr. Atwood, is able to train managers and executives to communicate by voice using the proper Paralinguistics. Voice tone, inflection, and pitch are all important to a good nonverbal communication process.

His experience in management and his research on the use of office space enables him to coach managers and executives on Proxemics. He teaches managers how to use distance and office space effectively when communicating to employees.

It is not enough to be educated in grammar, syntax, and proper verbal speech, success in most organizations today require a skilled use of nonverbal communications. The application of good nonverbal communication is never taught in formal schools, but is usually learned through life’s mistakes. It is more than just asking the right question at the right time in the right is how your body reacts when you ask it.

Do you have your subliminal signals under control and are you aware of the message you are sending nonverbally? Jeff may improve your chance of success for that promotion, help you negotiate that contract, or interview for that new position.
