How to lead and influence with non verbal gestures

What a great show we had. On this weeks episode we talked about how to lead and influence with non verbal gestures.

 

 

Key points covered in the show were:

1) Bad gestures impacts your ability to influence

Bad body language leaves your audience wondering if you are trustworthy, credible, and believable. Most importantly your colleagues or clients will be judging you and, if your non verbal language is inappropriate they will be questioning your motivation and wondering whose interests you’re looking after – theirs or your own!

2) To influence you must first be visible

3) To inspire and lead you need great manners

4) Audiences use eye contact to assess you

5) You must command the spaces you are in

6) A powerful posture inspires confidence

7) Your face and hands communicate your beliefs

8) Smiling makes you trustworthy and approachable

9) Physical barriers impede your ability to lead and influence
