Find your business edge with our one-day Successful Body Language workshop

Hello I'm Liz Banks. Are you taking full advantage of body language?

When you lead a meeting, present a proposal or try to convince people of your good idea, your body language is also "communicating" as you speak. And if your body language works with your message, you’re likely to be much more successful .

Body language awareness can also give you an edge when negotiating. If you can read key signs from the people you are dealing with, you can discover things that can help you reach a better deal.

What you’ll gain from our one day workshop

Throughout the day you will explore the use of body language using group exercises, role play and group discussion. Video will also be used to help reinforce feedback.

You will:

  • discover when body language is an important means of communication;
  • use body language to increase your personal impact;
  • increase your presence and strengthen your command over your listeners;
  • learn how to use body language to build rapport with others;
  • learn how to read and interpret other people’s signals; and
  • learn how to apply body language to help control tension and conflict.
