    The statement suggests that it is appropriate to ask for help only after expressing frustration in front of a guest. However, this is not true.

    When addressing people, it is important to be considerate of your tone, language (including body language), and attitude. Tone refers to the way you speak or express yourself, and having a respectful and appropriate tone is crucial in effective communication. Language encompasses not just the words you use, but also your non-verbal cues such as facial expressions and gestures. Being mindful of your body language is essential in conveying respect and understanding.

    The statement suggests that it is appropriate to share personal matters during program time. However, this is not true. Program time is typically meant for work-related activities and discussions, not personal matters. Sharing personal matters during program time can be seen as a distraction and may disrupt the flow of work. It is generally recommended to keep personal matters separate from work and discuss them during appropriate times, such as breaks or after work hours.

It conveys interest, respect, and attentiveness, making the other person feel valued and acknowledged. Eye contact is a non-verbal form of communication that helps to establish a connection and build rapport with others. It can also enhance understanding and trust in a conversation, as it allows for better interpretation of facial expressions and body language.

      True
