“The Power of Reading Body Language Gives You an Advantage in Business”
Learn to Read Body Language
Communication is far more than spoken words. Tone of voice and body language also has an important impact for sending intentional communication. We teach how to use body language in two strategic ways:
To build confidence and enhance one’s leadership image.
Interpret the signals of others during meetings or while delivering presentations.
Investing time in learning body language signals will position yourself and team on how to use body language strategically in business settings for strengthening:
One’s leadership image and credibility
Sales and the direction of negotiations
Delivering presentations, leading meetings and interpreting audience signals
Our body language training will teach how to use body language to build confidence or set a tone. It is very powerful to understand what signals mean during a sales pitch or delivering a presentation. After someone has been trained on what signals mean, then that individual has information on how to proceed or what to do differently.

Body Language and It’s Power
During communication for both delivering information and processing information the subconscious mind sends signals through postures, gestures, movements, and expressions that reveal what they are truly thinking. Numerous studies have shown that the body sends signals when an individual is not truthful. It also sends signals when a conclusion has been made based on what was heard. When you have been trained to identify the primary signals while delivering information you can then strategically keep your current plan or change your plan of action.
Our training will teach you or your team how to read signals for the following scenarios:
When someone has heard enough or is bored
When someone is ready to hear the “bottom line”
There is disagreement or defensiveness to what is being proposed
Someone is thinking and processing information
The listener has their frame of glasses, finger or pen in mouth
There really is a Pinocchio Effect. Learn the signals of deceit when getting feedback in meetings or presentations
Strategies on how to redirect a listener back to your message when there has been a disconnection
Our training will teach you and your team how to use signals for the following scenarios:
Send confidence (even when you are not!)
Balance the room for power
How to stand for meetings and presentations
What to do with those arms and legs that convey leadership
Lean how to “mirror” body language where studies show can be very effective during a sales presentation, negotiations and meetings
We will learn the details of your business model, goals and areas of concern. We will create a custom designed training for your company and team. We will present how to effectively use and understand body language in scenarios that is relevant to your business model. We role play situations, rehearse delivery for sales and presentations and “plant” audience responses. We can also record rehearsal to demonstrate effectiveness and where to apply strategies.
