Body Language and Communication

BODY LANGUAGE

WHAT IS YOUR BODY  SAYING?

 What signals are you sending to others about yourself, and what emotional feedback are you giving others in response to the signals they are sending you.

More than Half!

Body language accounts for more than half of what other people respond to and make assumptions about when connecting with you.

OPEN OR CLOSED?

Body language can be loosely broken into 2 kinds of signals: open and closed.

 Open exposes the heart and is welcoming.

Closed defends the heart and is standoffish and sometimes aloof.

 “Welcome, I am open for business” or

“Go away. Leave me alone.”

HEART TO HEART

Exercise:  For one day, point your heart at the heart of everyone you meet. This will demonstrate open body language and build trust and comfort.

You cannot not communicate!

Some experts estimate that 15% of your professional success is determined by skills and knowledge, while 85% comes from your ability to connect with other people and engender trust and respect…

What you say to someone only accounts for

about 20% of what they “hear”

NON VERBAL COMMUNICATION IS KEY!

When you are communicating, your gestures, tone of voice, eye language, and non verbal cues are enormously impactful to the message you send!

And you have to do it FAST!

The first few seconds of your first meeting with someone are driven by “your gut”. Each person makes unconscious, unthinking appraisals that center around their feelings of safety:

“I do/don’t feel safe with you”

“I do/don’t trust you.
