Power Body Language for Career Success – 4/2, 8 – 9:30pm

Are you preparing for a job interview, internship, or seeking to expand your networking capabilities? Strong communication skills are one of the highest predictors of career success, however, we more often think about what to say instead of how we say it.

Nonverbal communication accounts for up to 93% of communication between people, leaving 7% to the words we actually speak. In this workshop, we will explore how harnessing our nonverbal communication will give us a competitive edge in today’s competitive job market. Participants will learn how to leverage their body language to increase their influence, personal power, and ability to connect with people on a subconscious level.

Harnessing our own nonverbal communication is essential in conveying our personal brand, making a remarkable first impression, building relationships, and influencing others.

Nate Taylor ’18 is leading a workshop on body language for career success. Nate grew up in Brooklyn, NY and is a senior psychology major at Wesleyan University. He has been studying nonverbal communication for seven years and coaches business professionals, entrepreneurs, and college students on achieving their goals. Nate is currently becoming a certified body language trainer and is launching a coaching business to help students and professionals to harness the power of nonverbal communication to increase their capacity for success as leaders and change makers.

Applications are now open for two exciting courses that provide a deep dive into the realm of social impact and social entrepreneurship work. Applications are open until 11:59 pm on April 13. Applicants will be notified by 9:00 am on April 18th.

The Patricelli Center Fellowship (CSPL264 and CSPL265) is a year-long, project-based learning opportunity for entrepreneurs, intrapreneurs, and changemakers. They are seeking highly-dedicated students who wish to take a deep dive into social impact work. Some students enroll with a specific venture in mind, while others designed a project or join a team after the course begins.

The Jewett Center Board Residency Program (CSPL280 and CSPL281) provides an opportunity for Wes students to learn about the nonprofit sector while serving as non-voting members of a local board of directors. In addition to a weekly lecture on campus, we got to attend board meetings, actively participate in board committees, and complete board-level projects.

All members of the junior class are invited to apply for a semester-long Student Fellowship at the Center for the Humanities.  Applications can be submitted starting on Friday, March 9, 2018. A total of Eight Student Fellowships will be awarded by the Center’s Advisory Board (Four Student Fellows for each semester).  Student Fellows share an office at the Center and take part in Center activities. Among these events are the Center’s Monday Night Lecture series; colloquial discussions on Tuesdays, 10:30-1:00; and occasional Center conferences. One course credit is awarded for a Student Fellow’s participation in the Center’s activities.

 

Applicants for a Student Fellowship must be planning to do a senior project (usually an honors thesis) on a topic related to a Center theme for the year.  The project need not be underway at the time of the application.  The themes for each semester will be broadly construed and connect with projects and problems across the disciplines. The Student Fellows will work closely with Faculty Fellows at the Center as well as with Visiting Research Fellows and Postdoctoral Fellows.

 

Applications for student fellowships are due at the Center by Monday, April 2, 21018.  http://wesleyan.edu/humanities/fellowships/students.html

 

 

The speaker is Kirk Johnson, the Sant Director of the Smithsonian Museum of Natural History, and formerly first curator of the Wesleyan museum. 

His talk is entitled “Natural History in the Age of Humans” and its abstract is as follows:

“Natural history museums represent a fundamental tool to understand and preserve Earth’s natural and cultural heritage. The public perception of museums as educational experiences masks their deeper value to human society as the creators and keepers of our knowledge of the natural and cultural world. With a rapidly growing world population, food insecurity, infectious diseases, and invasive species are problems that may find their solution in the genomics of biodiversity housed in museum collections. Minerals, meteorites, and fossils are the physical evidence of the planet’s history, climate, biological evolution, and resource base. In an increasingly digital era, museums are one of the last bastions of the real thing. “

It will be held in Shanklin 107 on March 1st from 7:30-8:30pm, followed by a catered reception at Woodhead lounge (Exley 184).
