Forget the Do's and Don'ts of Body Language
Shift your focus on all the do’s and don’ts of your body language towards what really matters in creating lasting connections.
Body language is part of any communication training. We often feel good about the lists we create of the do’s and don’ts of it. Do smile, don’t put your hands in your pockets, do make eye contact, don’t cross your arms…
For me, these lists with recommended mini actions aren’t very helpful in my day to day conversations. I strongly believe that I can come across attentive, relaxed, and with time to talk while I lean on the wall.
Communication is a complex package and I’m better guided by being present, coming with openness and care, and focusing on what matters (build a connection, getting info, high-quality work). Try it out, I’m convinced your body will follow you 🤗👍💜
