The key role of body language

Overview

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.

Most people are almost unaware that there is such a thing as body language - and what a significant, meaningful role they play in interacting with others.

The effect of the gestures and facial expressions

The whole body speaks

Overview

Let's make it clear: A message, what we want to say and communicate, is only verbally perceived as 20 to 40%, ie in terms of content, for example 33% auditory (this concerns the perception of the nuances of the voice and vocal utterances without words). and to an almost 50% share of nonverbal, ie 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.

Overview

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

The fact that communication skills are a key to success in the workplace is already documented in the Old Testament - just think of the Tower of Babel. But your verbally presented arguments are not alone in a job interview. What does that mean for the job 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?

Overview

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 know your own gait, your handshake and your facial expression?
  • How do you act and react in a difficult negotiating situation, such as a salary negotiation or a job interview?

3. Pocket Psychology for Beginners?

Overview

Many staff staffs and also "pocket psychologists" believe to master or better understand body language.

5. Immediate Tips for the Right Body Language

Overview

Two simple, but important, body language recommendations at this point if you are looking for an 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.
