10 Effective Ways Leaders Can Influence Others Through Nonverbal Communications

10 Effective Ways Leaders Can Influence Others Through Nonverbal Communications | Persuasive and Powerful Presenting | Scoop.it

I have been working with business executives from all over the world. My principal objective has been to share with them how nonverbal communications can be used to enhance interpersonal communications and to change perceptions. Along the way, I have also learned a lot from my exchanges with these executives, and their teams about the nonverbals of effective leadership. Here are ten characteristics that I found to be influential not just to peers, but perhaps more importantly, to those they lead:

We've fostered generations of managers with robust analytical skills and poor social skills, and we don’t seem to think that matters.

 

The irony is that human beings are built to mentally "reset" and see the world socially anytime they enter a new situation. However, modern humans tend to value analytical over social thinking, and so we tend to override that natural behavior.

The system for thinking socially and the system for thinking about goals and concepts function like a neural seesaw. When you engage one region, it dampens the activity of the other.

 

We are deeply social beings, with social needs mattering more than physical needs in many situations. As Lieberman describes in Social, Maslow may have been wrong: Social is not up the pyramid, it is right down there at the base with physical needs. Until this insight makes its way into how we design our institutions, we may continue to see less than 30% of people in our organizations actively engaged in their work, and a number of our most important institutions failing.

Great article, but so dis-appointing that there are people like me who have been working in this area and saying this for as long as my career. Just shows how pervasive hierarhical, rational, logical, thinking is in our socity. On the other hand, exciting and dare I say it "delicious" as there is so much work out there. So, if you are ready to open up to a whole new world, contact me!
