Body Language

Essentially, body language is a mixture of movement, posture and tone of voice. The study of nonverbal communication is similar to learning a foreign language in that it requires time and effort to achieve fluency.

A salesperson, for example, would be wise to monitor their prospect's body language and adjust their presentation accordingly. By reading their prospect's gestures they will minimize perceived sales pressure and know when it's appropriate to close the sale.

Acquiring this important communication skill will make you a more effective trainer, a stronger recruiter and a more persuasive leader.
