How to ready body language a short explaination part 1

Reading body language now: What is body language may be a
common question asked from so many people. Body language is a snapshot of what
your body is doing while you are talking or listening to someone talk or even
just what people think what you believe someone means from their actions and
not words.

 

In today’s business climate there is no room for error in
communication to the slightest. Every advantage that you can have in your tool
bag gives you and advantage over your competition or even someone else in your
company. This may help you get or save the job or even help you make your
company look better in a bad situation.

 

What happens when you misread a situation and react to what
you consider someone’s non verbal communication or body language and you are
wrong? What happens when you are right?

 

What would your persuasive selling skills do if you were
able to read the language of someone’s body and you had the upper hand in a
negotiation?

 

What would you give to know if someone is fabricating the
truth or even lying to you?

 

What would happen if you could read the body language of men
to determine if a guy was into you or your best friend?

 

All of these skills can be used for everything from getting
a date to making a sale. You can use your abilities to use verbal and nonverbal
communication skills to your advantage in just about every situation.

 

Having the ability to read body language may be confused
with mentalist techniques or the ability to read minds but not in some freak
show fashion where people are scared of you.

 

One of the many questions asked about the ability of body
language communication skills is: Does it take time to learn or is it difficult
to learn?

 

Your answer would depend upon how much time you have and what
specifically you would like to be able to do.

 

There are plenty of myths and so called secrets of body language
and while some of them are true many of them are false.

 

What you will learn over time is that just like all learning
you will get out of the subject what you put into it.

 

There are so many skills to learn and situations where you
can determine who is trying to influence or persuade or who is not having a
good day. Learning how to read people can be fun and sometimes time consuming.

 

Reading non verbal communication is more than just an interpretation
or snapshot of a moment it is looking at the surroundings and the context of the
situation to determine what someone is saying with not just their words but
also their body. Facial expressions, hand movements, proximity and even
clothing may determine what communication is saying vs what is really being
said.

 

As always I would like to thank you for your comments and or
questions.

 

Now go implement!

  1. I met with a potential client the othere day I really focused on his body language and matching him. I let him pick the restaraunt, and I just asked him about his childhood and life and professional life, etc. We talked for about an hour an a half of which only about 5 minutes of that was about the sale. I ended up getting sale and all I did was focus on him, his body language and having an enjoyable lunch.

  2. I’m always amazed when someone questions why they should learn body language if they aren’t in sales…hmmm…isn’t just about situation some type of sale?
    Great intro and points out so many different situations where having the upper hand would pay off.

  3. I love how you end your posts with “Now Go Implement” because all the skills you’ve been teaching can be learned – as you’ve powerfully articulated “just like all learning you will get out of the subject what you put into it.” Staying tuned for more … much more!!!

  4. Outstanding blog post, great questions and reasons why one should create and nurture the ability to learn non-verbal communications. Keep in mind that body language, recognizing patterns of behavior and the signs and signals can help you in staying safe and avoiding dangerous situations on the streets as well.
