An engrossing workshop on the importance of soft skills in classrooms was conducted by Ms Seema Puri for the teachers of G. D. Goenka Public School, Vasant Kunj, on September 14, 2018. The concept of verbal vs non-verbal communication was discussed highlighting the importance of certain gestures and postures in portraying one’s attitude and personality. A smile can win a million hearts, hence it nurtures the teacher-student relationship. A number of interesting activities drove home the significance of team work and difference between hearing and listening. Tips for effective non-verbal communication were shared. The session was very informative about the impact of a teacher’s body language on the responses of students.
