It affects our work and personal relationships. Improves negotiating, management, and interpersonal skills by correctly interpreting body language and important signals.
Learning a New Language -
In many ways understanding body language is like learning a foreign language.
There are a few tips that make learning any language, even a nonverbal one, easier.
• Set Goals: Make sure that your goals are realistic and have specific timelines.
• Devote time to learning: Schedule time to practice. Do not rely on spare time.
Power of Body Language -
It is honest: Body language conveys truth, even when words do not.
Creates self-awareness: Understanding body language helps you identify your own actions that hinder success.
Understand feelings: Body language shows feelings and motive such as aggression, submission, deception, etc. Use these as cues to your communication.
Enhance listening and communication skills: Paying attention to body language makes someone a better listener. Hear between the words spoken to what is being said.
Actions Speak Louder than Words - Our impressions of each other are based on more than words. People can have cordial conversations and not like each other. The actions that we take are stronger than our words. For example, a person may dismiss someone using body language and not saying anything negative. Like it or not, our body language makes a lasting impression on the people around us.
