The ability to understand and to interpret body language can help you to pick up on intentions and thoughts that other people might have but are not talking about them. You can also use it in a positive way to add strength to your verbal messages.
Body movements can be used to reinforce what a person is saying and also offer information about the emotions and attitudes of a person. It happens many times that people say things that are conflicting with what their non-verbal communication shows. A skilled observer may be able to detect such discrepancies in behavior and use them as a clue to what someone is really feeling and thinking.
This course ''Master your body language'' will help you to understand the basics of how to use nonverbal communication. When delivering a speech or a presentation in public, it's important to know the fundamentals of how to use your body to your advantage. Keeping your body movements aligned with your message will keep your audience engaged. In public speaking, all the attention is on the speaker, and for the listeners, it's hard to focus on the idea if only hearing it. We are people of visuals and we memorize better when movement is involved. Also is more entertaining for the audience to see someone have appropriate body movements on the stage than just standing like a statue. However, any movement must have a purpose and should be done in accordance with the words spoken.
During dialogues, we are so focused on what we are saying that most of the time we are not even aware of what our body language is. That's why there are times when we are trying to hide our thoughts and emotions with our words, but the lack of awareness makes the body language reveal the reality. There are clues that you can learn so you can understand more the real intentions of your listener or the speaker. This course will help you to do that and everyday communication will become easier and more effective.
The course includes an explanation of the basic meanings of nonverbal communication. Our hand gestures, facial expressions, eye contact, and body posture can say even a lot more than our words. Being aware of the distractions we make and how to use props correctly, knowing how to use the stage when speaking publicly or how to read other's body language, all will be covered in the course. The suggestions given in the course will help you deliver a better and more memorable message to your listeners making sure you're giving clear ideas by aligning verbal and nonverbal communication and not leaving any room for confusion.
Become an effective communicator by using your body language when expressing your thoughts and ideas.
