Having attended numerous communication and interpersonal skills courses throughout my life, I always sensed something fundamental was missing; as it turned out that ‘something’ was far more important than I could have envisaged – the incredible power of our non-verbal communication.
Most people would agree that much of our success in life is based on our ability to communicate effectively, but did you know, in every face-to-face interaction, only 7% of our communications comes from the words we speak? Our voice tone sends another 38%, but the lion’s share, 55% is delivered powerfully through our body language! And it is this unspoken, silent language which will ultimately account for far more than even the most carefully curated words.
Even when we’re silent, our body is always communicating, sending subliminal messages to everyone around us. People will look at us and make an almost immediate, unconscious judgement based purely on what they see on the surface; so by the time we say ‘hello’, our body will have already ‘spoken’ volumes, delivering vital information about our levels of success, confidence, self-esteem, credibility, competence, status and much, much more.
To gain a powerful competitive edge in any situation, you have to apply a new way of thinking and learn how to utilise 100% of your communication channels – and not just the 7% (the words) that most people focus on. For those who invest in this training, the results will go beyond any professional qualification. Because without question, in any situation where you desire to have an impact or influence, it is your body language which will play the key, pivotal role on the level of success you achieve and, how quickly you achieve it.
Discovering these powerful insights lit a spark which has remained to this day. Body language is a subject I am very, very passionate about and every day I consider myself extremely fortunate to be able to do what I love – whether it’s training, coaching, delivering a key note speech, lecturing or consulting – the deepest joy of all is the sense of satisfaction I receive from witnessing my clients forge ahead, powerfully accelerating their levels of success… it is quite simply, overwhelming.
For those who invest in understanding the vital importance of body language, the results will go beyond any Bachelor’s degree, MBA, or any other professional qualification. Because without question, it is your body language, which will play a vital role on the level of success you achieve, and how quickly you achieve it – in every area of your life.
