Effective Communication with Conscious Body Language

Are your effective communication skills still effective?

Even with the explosion of information and communication channels available today, the pace of life has accelerated to where you probably feel that getting someone to stop, listen and pay attention has become a real communication challenge.

 Effective listening skills, body language, soft skillsWhether you are finding increased resistance to your:

  • Leadership skills,

  • Sales skills and presentation skills

  • Customer service skills

  • Interpersonal skills

  • Parental skills

It seems that the more we bury ourselves in our electronic gadgets, the tougher it is to pry our listeners out. Welcome to the dark side of the information age where too much information has clogged our ability to effectively communicate.

Over the past generation we have gone from technology being an imperfect assistant to it being a controlling factor of how we live and behave. We are now measured, assessed, monitored and lately spied upon so much that it has become background noise to an increasingly stressful and frenetic pace of life. And that stressful pace keeps increasing.

In this continuing rush towards more technology, we also seem to be losing one of the most basic components to a well functioning society, trust.

Now, more and more jobs are becoming automated. Many trend research firms point to a future where any job now done with muscle will be replaced by machine. Any job requiring intelligence and decision will be replaced by computers and software.Researchers are now pointing towards three major trends:

  • The customer will vote with their wallet.

With more and more choices and increasing global competition, people have more choices. It has become and will continue to be a buyer-s market. If you and your product don’t stack up, you’ll be out of business very quickly

  • Business will be more value and relationship based.

The days of cold and calculating, business transactions will fade. Emotion, feeling and integrity will be used to build trustworthy relationships. As the Center for High Ambition Leadership has stated, ”your brand will become your stand.”

  • New jobs will be focused upon service and communication.

Be it in customer service roles or in leadership roles, those that can listen well, communicate and ”move” others into action will be in demand.

Could this extremely frustrating and challenging situation actually represent one of the biggest opportunities for even more effective communication going forward?

If you too are becoming more and more convinced that something needs to change for us to get to the next stage of societal development, then you may be ready for the following suggestion. What if getting more conscious of your body language can increase your ability minimizes stress, to communicate better and build more trust?

What if, your future success will depend upon you being able to convey a clear, concise and trustworthy message that can ”move” your listeners into action?

I am fascinated with what makes us humans ”tick”, especially when it comes to how we consciously communicate and express ourselves with our body language. My business background is in international sales and sales management, selling everything from automobile tires in Houston, Tx, to retail banking delivery systems in 20 countries. I have graduated from CoachU’s 3 year Coach Training program, been certified as an Extended DISC consultant and become a Certified International Body Harmony Teacher with over 20 years of ”hands-on” experience in bodywork. This rich and varied background combined with over 20 years of being an entrepreneur has blessed me with insights and experiences I never would have noticed in the corporate world. Mainstream business now seems to be waking up to the riches available from more conscious and responsible business practices. Expanding Understanding’s Sensational Soft Skills Toolbox , the books I have written and training I have developed now provide savvy decision makers and their colleagues measurable results and a more restful night's sleep. These tools provide an edge in consciously understanding, deliberately using and profiting from the most powerful communication tool available, our bodies. I look forward to meeting you on this path to mastery in non verbal communication.
