  • You cannot not communicate
    Meet Us What People Say Contact Us Iridium Blog You Cannot Not Communicate 13th Aug 2010 You Cannot Not Communicate You may have noticed that it is impossible not to communicate with people Or to put it more positively you may have noticed that through non verbal clues as much as verbal interactions you are communicating all the time Albert Mehrabian currently Professor of Psychology at UCLA has become well known for his work on the relative importance of verbal and non verbal messages His results are often quoted and misquoted when discussing communication In his research he came to two conclusions Firstly that there are basically three elements in any face to face communication words tone of voice and body language And secondly when we are face to face we weigh the inputs we receive differently He found that in receiving a message regarding feelings or attitudes we only rate the verbal part as 7 of the total message The tone of voice accounts for 38 and body language for 55 Note Mehrabian never said words are only 7 of all communications just those involving feelings and attitudes So we are all good at reading body language However this means that even if we are not speaking we leak out unconsciously to others around us a lot of information about our feelings and attitudes via body language gestures etc We are constantly communicating with people when we walk into a room sit in a meeting and meet people for the first time You cannot not communicate As you go through the day what are you saying with your unconscious non verbal communication We can also use Mehrabian s findings to help us build better rapport with others Two of my favourite TV presenters are Bruce Parry and Michael Palin

  • Romeo and Juliet in Baghdad – Presenting Yourself With Impact
    overseas theatre companies produce their own versions of Shakespeare s plays in their own languages as part of the Cultural Olympiad The most successful so far has been Romeo and Juliet in Baghdad The play was performed by the Iraqi Theatre Company in Stratford upon Avon in early May in Arabic with English sur titles and received rave reviews In this new adapted version of the familiar story Romeo is a Shiite Juliet a Sunni and they must contend not only with warring families but also a country torn by conflict and sectarian strife This is the story of Romeo and Juliet in Baghdad Pistols have replaced swords and characters wear contemporary Iraqi clothing The play has an Iraqi cast and an Iraqi director who also adapted the play weaving in the conflict and suffering which Iraqis have had to live for the past nine years and more The ending is equally fitting and poignant The final scene is in a church and Romeo and Juliet having finally got together become victims of a suicide bomber For me the play was a big success When I reflected afterwards I realised that this was due to a number of factors which are equally important for presenting ourselves with impact on or off the stage The many positives were It had an intriguing title It was stripped down to the bare bones of the plot It was short and succinct just one act It used a story to tell a story The basic story was a familiar and relatively simple one The story of Iraq Baghdad and sectarianism between Sunnis and Shiites is equally fresh in our minds from news stories over the past nine years The actors were acting from the heart it was their story as much as Shakespeare s
