- What qualities go into your Video Tools, the way you look.
- The five Audio Tools that help you master the way you sound.
- A series of questions to help you maximize your nonverbal patterns.

Note of caution: There is a lot of junk written about nonverbal communication, so evaluate your sources very carefully. Here are some added resources that I’ve vetted for you:
- Paul Ekman’s website (Ekman is one of the foremost experts in facial expressions): https://www.paulekman.com
- Albert Mehrabian’s book Nonverbal Communication (Mehrabian published this seminal work in 1972; that edition is notoriously hard to find; your best bet is to search for it at one of your local libraries in WorldCat at https://www.worldcat.org/title/nonverbal-communication/oclc/375688)
- Joe Navarro’s book What Every Body Is Saying: https://www.jnforensics.com/books
