Control body language for job success: with the right gestures and facial expressions for a better impression

How we act on others, what impression we leave behind, whether we are considered competent or dubious, and whether we can assert ourselves or more often have to lose out - all of this is communicated, inter alia, through body language. How can we control this?

Best of HR – Berufebilder.de®

The importance of nonverbal communication

The importance of non-verbal Communication for the personal impression is undisputedly proven. And yet: Many people waste their time before important lectures or conversations with creating the "right" words instead of before Spiegel to fine-tune the individual appearance.

Do you feel that you are being overlooked and overlooked in your job? Can you not enforce your good ideas often? Of the Manager shows the cold shoulder and the colleagues do not perceive you. Why is it? Arguments and expertise lack very few.

With the body on a cuddly course

Rather, it depends on how you say what you say: the body language is not assertive enough, or worse, contradicts verbal communication. While the mouth Criticism pronounce, affirm gestures like playing around with watches, jewelry, clothes, pens or hairstyles the opposite.

All too often we say with our body: "I am the love, nice and friendly, who cannot harm anyone." We all know from the vernacular: "A gesture is worth a thousand words."

If looks could kill

Everyone knows the saying “If looks could kill”. Although looks are the most influential element of body language, very few are aware of their concrete effect. Just watch the behavior of women when a colleague tells a vulgar, xenophobic or even misogynistic joke.

Most of them look, embarrassed, elsewhere, despite outrage and internal resistance. The result: The colleagues feel confirmed or discover new areas for attack: "Oh look, the little one is uncomfortable!"

Men with imperator eyes, women as mice

If we compare the effect of men 's and women' s looks, then the serious difference is apparent. Men usually act with the imperator's view: direct eye contact, possibly even a critical, serious face, and thus radiate dominance, offensive or even aggressiveness.

In contrast to this, the looks of many women are rather insecure, fleeting and are concealed by a "nice" smile. You subordinate yourself to one glance. Where do you look when talking to customers, colleagues, the supervisor or in a meeting?

The awareness of one's own effect

This is the first step towards a more effective appearance: to develop an awareness of one's own effects.

The next step is to spy on, correct and train. Take a closer look at people who are successful in business and learn from them. They look at the world very differently. But even these were not born with the promising look. They, too, have to train themselves with instruments like the "warning eye" in precarious situations.

The Spiegel as an ally

You can be a great ally Spiegel be. He shows you exactly how you look. Before doing this, practice your own warning look until it sits. Make yourself aware in everyday life:

  • Am I actively looking for eye contact?
  • Can I stand by the gaze or the stare of others and stare at me by staring back?
  • Do I keep eye contact during a conversation? Sometimes we don't do this because we don't want to "stare" at the other. Unfortunately, the opposite is very different; namely as evasive behavior.
  • How do I react in sight duels? Many supervisors or colleagues look so dark and evil that we automatically avoid the view - this is considered a body language capitulation.
  • How do I react to the inappropriate behavior of my colleague?
  • Can I use my warning vision to return it to the path of virtue?

Well, when do you start your next aerobics class?
