I never heard about a body language advantage here in cebu a couple of years ago, when I heard from a friend of mine that the Cebu Teambuilding Facilitators Network are having an event here in Cebu and brings with them Justin Pinon also known as the mental assassin I got curios what event is this all about. When I got to watch a video about the event it gave me an idea to invite students like me to come and watch the event this coming November 26, 2016 and this coming Saturday. It’s a whole day event to learn what can a student get during and after the event down below is are a few skills any experts in body language certainly possess:
DISARMING NEGATIVE BODY LANGUAGE�
Negative body language refer to any kind of gestures that communicate disapproval to what you are trying to communicate.
Here’s one situation where this happens with a coffee salesman:
“Hey Miss, are you interested to buy this special brand of coffee? It can benefit you in many many ways!”
“Oh that sounds interesting”, the lady says with a polite smile. But her body slowly turns away, as she slowly folds her arms.
This is a basic example of how negative communication is conveyed through the body, and if salesman does not respond accordingly, he will certainly lose the lady as a customer. In fact, there is a large number of negative gestures to look for when trying to persuade people.
Another essential part of persuasion involves ‘building rapport’. When one builds rapport, the person is creating the necessary connection for a trusting relationship to take place. No one will want to believe or buy anything from a person he/she barely knows. Consequently, the mark of a great communicator lies in how easily that person can build a connection with another.
3. SPOTTING LIES AND DECEPTION
A few people shrug this skill as the stuff of TV series and novels. However, spotting lies can be quite possible with the right knowledge and experience. The first known person to study emotions and microfacial expressions was Paul Eckman. He proposes that for every emotion we feel, it would always manifest in some way in our faces and bodies.
The truth is, human beings are generally emotional creatures, and what we feel frequently shows in our body gestures.
4. WIN RESPECT
This is one of the less known benefits of body language. However, communicating powerful body language can aid commanding respect from peers and authorities. Have you ever wanted to win respect from your boss? Try to become aware of the body gestures you are emanating.
Of course, body language does not solely account for the respect your peers have for you, but it certainly wins you points.
We can all learn something new during this event, who knows what we can get as a student, when we do that things that make as have after the event. To all my friends and to students out there here me out because this is an opportunity of learning something new. Hope to see you guys there!
