“I See What You’re Thinking” – Body Language Skills Seminar
“What you do speaks so loud, that I cannot hear what you say”… President John F. Kennedy quoting Emerson
Next Seminar Saturday – COMING 2019
9:30 am to 4.30 pm (1 hour for lunch)
(Registration closing date XXth XXXXXXX 2019)
Ever thought about the way you walk and talk? What about the way you sit? Does it matter and what does it say about you? About your mood? Your attitude? Your personality or your culture? Our body gestures, facial expressions, postures and even the distance we keep from others, when tied up together, create a rich layer of mostly subconscious communication called body language. It’s your most natural and effective way of communicating in face to face interactions. “It’s not what you say, but how you say it”, right?; and you say it with your body.
For many decades, body language has been the subject of many books and much scientific research. It is said that more than 60% of our communication is non-verbal. Because only 10% of how we communicate is done with words and 40% comprises voice expression with the final 50% involving body gestures, it is self-evident that anyone with a knowledge of body language skills has a tremendous advantage over those who have no such training or knowledge. How you walk, stand, sit, your posture, facial expressions, gestures and even eye-contact say MORE than your actual words or the way you say it! Also, first impressions count. Body language is one way to get the most out of your interactions. Body language is non-verbal communication where we express our thoughts and feelings using our facial expressions, eye movements and body gestures to tell people what we are thinking and how we are really feeling and if we are lying.
This seminar will show you how to build rapport with other people at work and in every area of your life by helping you to read body language. If you’re interested in an improvement in your interpersonal relationships or simply a way to understand others better, it will show you how to read people’s emotions and opinions before they even say a word, and to build your own emotional intelligence. You’ll also learn how to judge your own body language: discover what your appearance and posture – even the way you walk – tell people about you and learn to improve your body language to project a confident, interesting you.
