Example

As an icebreaker, I used the video clip I’ve posted below prior to a class I was teaching to some Customer Service Staff. The subject of my lecture that day was body language and non-verbal communication. The clip illustrates that its not just what you say, but how you say it and how you present yourself that often counts.

  • Tune into radio stations WI – FM (What’s in it for me?) and MMFG – AM (Make me feel good about myself).(Pike 1994)

  • Want to be treated like adults.

  • Sell it, don’t tell it.
