The Study of Body language in Business
Body language is much under used in the world of business and when put into practice, the results can be extremely beneficial. The language that we give out to others can be very varied and inconsistent and we may not be consciously aware of how we come across to others. Have you ever felt that you were just not on the same wavelength as someone else in a conversation? Ever lost a sales opportunity and couldn’t work out why? Then this workshop is for you!
The day will be supported with a mix of slide material, workbooks, group case studies and team dynamic exercises. At the end of the workshop, delegates will have built their own Body Language Profile and, through the study of Body Language, will have much greater knowledge of the whole science of this fascinating subject.
Understanding Non-Verbal Communication through the study of Body Language
Have you ever been in the situation when you really didn’t believe what someone was saying? Did you have a sense that something didn’t ring true or a gut feeling that all was not right?
The difference between the words people speak and our understanding of what they are saying comes from non-verbal communication, otherwise known as body language. By developing your awareness of the signs and signals of body language, you can more easily understand other people, and more effectively communicate with them.
There are sometimes subtle (and not so subtle) movements, gestures, facial expressions and even shifts in our whole bodies that indicate something is going on. By becoming more aware of this body language and understanding what it might mean, you can learn to read people more easily. This puts you in a better position to communicate effectively with them. What’s more, by increasing your understanding of others, you can also become more aware of the messages that you convey to them.
Working With Groups and Disengagement
Have you ever delivered a presentation and had a sense that people weren’t really buying into what you had to say? What about working with a group where you were facilitating a meeting? Was everyone on board with the ideas, or did some appear disengaged?
Ideally, when you stand up to deliver a presentation or work with group, you want 100 percent engagement with all concerned. This often doesn’t happen on its own though. But you can actively engage the audience when you need to if you’re alert to some of the typical signs and signals of people not being engaged.
One Size Does NOT Fit All
Each person is unique and their signs and signals might have a different underlying cause from the ones you suspect. This is often the case when people have different past experiences. This is why it’s important to check that your interpretation of someone else’s body language is correct which will be a key aspect of this Study of Body Language workshop. You might do this through the use of further questions, or simply by getting to know the person better.
To help practice and further develop your skill in picking up body language, engage in some people watching. Spend some time observing people during the day, on your travels and in cafes, bars and restaurants. You will be amazed what you will notice!
Even if you do not get the chance to check whether you are correct in your assessment, you will be developing your observational skills. This in turn can help you to pick up signals and further study body langauge when you are interacting with others.
