Mariola Jarzynska is a graduate of UMASS Amherst with 20 years of experience in inside, outside and the recruiting field. Currently, she works for Healthtrax at the East Longmeadow Wellness Center as a Senior Membership Advisor recruiting new members, providing quality services to current members, as well as establishing new business and promoting Healthtrax through various events to local companies. Mariola is a Certified Micro Expressions Practitioner and a Body Language Communicator.
During her career, Mariola learned that to be more effective at anything we do, we should pay much more attention to our body language, because we communicate far more with our body language than we do with our words: More than 90% of everything we communicate is non-verbal, communication.
Through decoding our facial expressions, eye and body movements as well as our gestures, we can learn how to improve our first impression, how to build rapport, how to influence others and even detect deception. The acquired skills can be used not only in a business setting, but in personal life and in any face-to-face interaction with other people.
