Abstract Nonverbal communication is the concealed language of emotional intelligence that either attracts or resists others. Nonverbal communication work as connectors that connect us to others and conveys emotions more powerfully than words, Most of our communication is driven by emotions and is generally non-verbal , this is true in our classrooms and so is an important factor improving the psychological ethos of the classroom. Emotions are known as the building blocks of every relationship in life. They can carry thoughts, transform relationships and profoundly influence behaviour of a person. It is necessary for an individual to be aware and in control of their emotions, to think clearly and creatively; manage stress and challenges; communicate well with others and, show their confidence. While having an argument or dealing with others, our emotions influence the process of communication. Emotional intelligence is the hidden factor in making contacts and also in communication. Five key skills of emotional intelligence are Quick stress relief, Emotional awareness, Non-verbal communication, and Playful communication and Conflict resolution. The present paper discusses the role of non-verbal communication in the classroom and school campuses to help the students be emotionally intelligent people and indirectly helps them to be a balanced personality with happiness quotient and positive energy.
