The key role of body language

Body language, gestures and facial expressions are often underestimated. The dilemma is that many people do not or only very limitedly master this very crucial language, whereby it is essential to differentiate between active and passive.

The effect of the gestures and facial expressions

In doing so, she plays an absolutely significant role in daily communication and in contact with others. Nobody can escape their effects.

We humans present ourselves, our personality and our attitude to life with our bodies every day, privately as well as professionally. Christian Morgenstern is attributed the Bonmot: The body is the translator of the soul into the visible.

The whole body speaks

Let us make it clear to ourselves: A message, what we want to say and communicate, is only perceived verbally, i.e. content, to around 20 to 40%, auditory to around 33% (this relates to the perception of the nuances of the vocal range and vocal expressions without words) and almost 50% non-verbal, i.e. H. Body language.

From head to toe - the whole body always speaks: the way we sit in a chair or stand in the open space tells more about us than we can imagine, maybe even when we are right.

How you are judged in the interview

In the application, presentation and thus also the examination situation, you will be judged and judged by yourself - namely your opponent and everything you hear but also to see.

Also, you will be more perceived than you are likely to imagine (for example, your shoes, as you go, your hair, hands, fingernails, make-up, how well you are shaved, pleasant or obtrusive smell etc.). All of this flows into the decision-making process when it comes to filling a job and has enormous weight.

5 tips for a better body language

For all these reasons, you should work on your body language to improve the impression you make on others. 5 tips.

1. Convince with better use of the body

That in workwelt The ability to communicate is a very important key to success, as documented in the Old Testament - just think of the Tower of Babel. But your verbal arguments are not the only decisive factor in a job interview. What does that mean for the interview?

You must be able to communicate with your entire person credibly what you have to offer, what you promise to do in the future and that you are trustworthy. This trust factor is intuitively accessible to many decision-makers and has to do with the non-verbal perception of the counterpart.

2. How well can you body language?

But what does communication really mean? How many languages ​​do you speak? Your mother tongue, one, two or even three foreign languages? What about your body language skills? Consider the following questions:

  • Do you know how to interpret non-verbal signals in dealing with others?
  • Do you understand the nonverbal signs of your counterpart in conversation?
  • Can you convince yourself with your body language, especially in the working world?
  • Do you even know your own gait, your handshake and your facial expressions?
  • How do you act and react in a difficult negotiating situation, such as a salary negotiation or a job interview?

They like to work with lists, from which they can quickly read my, what a certain attitude, gesture or facial expressions for an alleged meaning has - on a similar bleak level as the various dream interpretation books, which allegedly betrayed on cue, what the dream of the past Night means.

4. Proper Presence: Preparation is Everything!

In the preparatory phase, you can confront the discussion-talk situation even with unpleasant questions. Make a list and write down all the difficult issues and questions that you can embarrass. What would you answer to each of these questions? Now you have the opportunity to prepare your answers.

With a modern mobile phone, you can even record and see and hear later. When you play a job interview with a person taking on the staff selection part, you'll be amazed at how quickly you get a certain amount of body language from the visual self-control of dealing with the awkward conversation sovereignty develop. This is how you get better and more convincing.

5. Immediate Tips for the Right Body Language

Two simple but important body language recommendations at this point when it comes to a job interview:

  1. Hands away from head and face: Sounds simple, but when you're under pressure, it's very fast that you play with your hand at the earlobe, hold yourself close to your neck, touch your nose very briefly.
  2. Never interfere with your arms in front of your breasts. This creates a barrier for your counterpart, signals closeness and rejection - and also uncertainty, since you need to entrench yourself. In addition, you also take the air to breathe.
