Body Language – Communicating without wordsadmin_website
A person’s persona is defined not only by their effortless communication skills but their suave display of unspoken emotions as well. They say your body language speaks a lot of the way you are as a person, in spite of being a non-verbal way of speaking. Your movements and gestures invariably give out the message one wants to communicate, thus becoming essential to pay attention to while on the podium.
A great public speaker who can build a spellbinding connect with the audience not only communicates with his words but emphasizes his energy through his body as well. A speaker may use simple gestures like hand movements, steady eye contact and movement around the stage to relate to the audience from a distance to accentuate their point. The audience in order to trust the speaker will do so only if their body language speaks the truth and has the authority in their voice to convince those present in front of them.
Confidence comes with having a good command over language and a grip on the subject being spoken about. A bad speaker will let the audience know their incompetence or inability to deliver without even using their words as they would resort to subtle giveaways such as pacing up and down without a reason, turning their back to the audience, speaking too fast or in hushed tones and stooping over rather than standing tall and confident. In extreme scenarios, the speaker may even resort to nail-biting; All signs of poor body language that will instantly put people off the subject in focus.
One’s face and facial expressions are an integral part of expressing your body language. The speaker needs to know exactly when to laugh, smile or be sad. Every expression has a said effect on the audience and can drive them in the direction and create the mood you are trying to bring to the table.
