The Tone of Your Face

You are setting a tone in the workplace, the only question is, what tone are you setting?

Like it or not, you do set a tone or an atmosphere in your workplace. Furthermore, the higher up in the organization you are the more that tone resonates. 

But we don’t necessarily communicate with our words.  In fact, according to A. Barbour (author of Louder than Words: Nonverbal Communication) 7% of our communication is verbal and 38 % is vocal (pitch, volume, rhythm, etc).  Fully 55% of our communication is body movements, mostly facial expressions!

So, who cares? If you care about productivity, you should care. If you care that you have a pleasant place to spend half your waking hours, you should care. If you care that truly effective leaders – lead by example, you should care.

If you want your place of business, from office to factory or farm, to be a place that people joyfully give 110 % then smile & greet your co-workers with a joyful face.

“A happy heart makes the face cheerful…” Psalm 15:13 (a)
