What sort of tone and atmosphere do you think they create?These words and phrases are becoming more common-place language amongst managers and are indicators of how things are done in their business.

Every second that we are in the presence of another, we are constantly sending and receiving messages, often silent, nonverbal messages that can either augment our communication effectiveness or detract from it.
