Lately I’ve been watching an old Allan Pease body language seminar from the 80s, and I’m startled at how accurate it remains today, almost 30 years later. The reality is that our subconscious movements say a lot about how we are feeling, and these behaviours have evolved over thousands of years!Often the best communicators have a great intuitive sense for reading body language, but as with most things, this is a skill that can be learned. Using body language effectively can dramatically improve one’s performance in sales meetings, business pitches, and staff interaction. Here’s a quick video from one of his more recent seminars:If you’re more of a ready, the book “The Definitive Book of Body Language” by Allan and Barbara Pease is also a great primer. Actually, the title is a little misleading. Having a good understanding of body language isn’t just powerful in business, it’s powerful in life!
