Quite often, I get new books coming across my desk by authors and thought-leaders asking to be interviewed for my column. One that caught my attention is in a field I have little familiarity with -- body language as I type this, I am hunched over my laptop in a horrendous posture. The Power Of Body Language I was intrigued by the prospect of speaking to a bona fide expert in the field, so I took the bait. And it was a fascinating conversation. In her latest book, Image Scrimmage , she alerts us -- with uncanny candor and humor -- to take advantage of understanding the power of nonverbal communication in business. The book has a clear strategy: A nine-step plan for building and enhancing your leadership skills in ways you're not accustomed to -- from handshakes to hairstyles, toes to torso, standing to sitting -- it's all there. The book is packed with information, research, exercises, and "Sage Stories," but its subtitle "9 Ways Women Win With Body Language" gave me the impression that I was not the target audience.
How strong is your first impression? In this course, body language expert Vanessa Van Edwards explains how to use non-verbal communication to become the most memorable person in any room.Such behavior includes facial expressions , body posture, gestures , eye movement, touch and the use of space. Body language exists in both animals and humans, but this article focuses on interpretations of human body language. It is also known as kinesics. Body language is a type of a nonverbal communication in which physical behaviors, as opposed to words, are used to express or convey the information.
I loved this course! I've learned so much and Vanessa did a terrific job making it easy and fun. I loved learning that by paying more attention to body language, I'm becoming a better listener and picking up on stuff I never caught before.
This was an absolutely fantastic course, it would be a huge understatement to say this course was worth the money. Vanessa provided tremendously accessible, highly actionable training useful for both social and professional environments.
