How to understand body language – Mark Bowden
Understanding what people might be really feeling, even when they are not vocalizing it, is key to any strategist’s job. And it’s not just what other people’s body language that matters – your job calls for presenting and persuading under extreme pressure. What your listeners think of your data, research, ideas, plans, and your entire organization is affected by how they react to you when you communicate. Never underestimate the crucial role your body language and behavior play in creating the right narrative behind your content that can move your audience from a feeling of “loath it” to “LOVE it!” within a fraction of a second and without you ever saying a word!
The essentials of compelling nonverbal communication are quick to learn for any leader who needs to connect instantly with their audience in research presentations, strategy sessions or new business pitches. This practical workshop will use the latest techniques derived from the science of embodied cognition and evolutionary behaviorism to get you moving in a way that cuts down misunderstanding and builds credibility whether you are delivering data or creative.
