In fact, there is no specific advice on how to use body language. What you do may be interpreted in several ways, depending on the setting and who you are talking to. The body language used in different situations will be different, such as when talking to the boss and when talking to a girl or guy you are interested in. These are some body language tips that allow you to improve your communication skills as well as achieve success in life easily.

De bons conseils !

Richard Lock's curator insight, March 13, 2014 4:59 AM

Think of reading body language as a detective trying to solve a crime. No one piece of evidence on its own is worth much. However, when several pieces of evidence point in the same direction - start paying attention.

5 Tips For Improving Leadership Communication

5 Tips For Improving Leadership Communication | Growing To Be A Better Communicator | Scoop.it

Leadership communication is much more than the words we say and how we articulate what we want to team to “hear.” Effective communication is also about emotional intelligence, knowing your audience and active listening.

(From the article): Stay calm and be positive. Calm is contagious. And so is panic.Smile. Carry yourself with confidence. And try not to wear your emotions on your sleeve. I am not saying to deny our normal human functions but be aware that effective communication is about 7% the words we say. The rest is about body language, tone and delivery.

Oh dear... as a leader you have to be a great story teller and motivator and that goes nowhere without communications.

donhornsby's curator insight, March 14, 2014 10:27 AM

(From the Article)  Leaders can find it simpler to avoid communicating, at least until they have everything figured out. So they retrench and put off connecting on key issues, which can quickly get out regardless as rumors. Or they rely on email or other written communications that, while better than nothing, can leave employees with more questions than answers.


Leaders, like all of us, want to do the activities that they feel good and successful at doing. Communications can be difficult to get right, and though important, all too easy to avoid – especially when you get to call the shots.

12 Sentences To Improve Your Communication

12 Sentences To Improve Your Communication | Growing To Be A Better Communicator | Scoop.it

 

Due to constant technological innovation, it is now extremely easy to speak to others,  regardless of where you are. Who doesn’t recognize this  scene: you are seating at your desk, having in front of you your laptop. To your right side is your iPhone, on the other side, your tablet. While you check your emails, you suddenly have John on Skype. Then Elise calls you on Facetime, whereas Christian demands your attention by using Whatsapp. How to properly communicate with all these people, demanding your personal attention to different issues, at precisely the same moment?

Excellent article that captures it well.  When I was doing training on reflective listening and interviewing skills, we got into the practice of using these 12 sentences and gradually they become incorporated into everything that you do - all aspects of your life and certainly aid in clarity of communication.  Try them!  You will be amazed.
