It's What You Say and What You Do! Nonverbal Immediacy Behaviors: A Key to Effective Communication.
Skow, Lisa; Whitaker, Todd
NASSP Bulletin, v80 n584 p90-95 Dec 1996
Nonverbal immediacy behaviors are nonlinguistic actions that send four simultaneous and complementary messages conveying a person's approachability, availability, closeness and warmth, and "multi-channeling" qualities. For principals, such behaviors help even potentially hostile interactions proceed more smoothly. Principals should consciously focus on each behavioral aspect and be careful not to communicate contradictory messages. (MLH)
