Body Language Workshop

 

What are these people telling you?

This page is about Body Language. Are they Obstructive? Welcoming? Open? Lying? Reluctant? Unconvinced? Angry? Nervous? Defensive? Confident? Honest?

I’ve left most of the pictures a bit fuzzy. It was accidental when I started making up the page, when I enlarged some photos, but then I thought “I’ll leave it like that, it illustrates a point” What point? The point that in most cases, most of us are unclear what the other person is thinking, and worse than that, we’re not clear what impression we’re giving of ourselves either.

Would you like a bit of help with that? Good. That’s exactly what this day’s workshop will provide.

Effective communication skills are critical in the development of relationships between people and although verbal communication plays a large part in this, studies have shown that anywhere between 55% and 93% of our message comes from not what we say, but very often the non-verbal communication behind the message. Therefore, it is clear that body language is an important, influential aspect of communication and understanding how it works is essential in the development of your personal communication skills.

People are unconsciously using non-verbal language to communicate messages to other people all the time. We are also constantly dropping clues about what is going on in our head, sometimes without even knowing. Good communicators adapt quickly to other people’s mood and manner by assessing their body language and non-verbal signals. When good communicators talk with others they not only listen to the words, but also listen to the quality of the voice and notice the body language being portrayed. This gives them a far deeper insight into a person’s emotions and true feelings. Often even the finest communicators are unaware of how they read people’s reactions. Even for them it is useful to become aware of how they do what they do and hone their skills.

Whatever your current skill levels, it is clear that a good understanding of body language is crucial in developing your communication skills.

This training session sets out to develop your skills in understanding your own body language as well as being able to read the body language of others. After all, if we can learn to identify and appreciate non-verbal clues, we can begin to improve our communication as a whole. This could impact situations such as; sales visits, interviews, presentations and normal day to day interactions.

At this end of this Body Language Training Course, participants will be able to:

  • Explain the important elements to consider when interpreting Body Language
  • Identify the messages being portrayed by their and others’ Body Language
  • Apply their understanding of Body Language to improve their communication style
