Communication is part of daily life, regardless of position in business or life role. Humans should have an understanding of perception and how body language accounts for more than half (55%) of daily interpersonal interaction. This is significantly more than the spoken word, which accounts for a mere 7% of interpretation, with 38% depending on the tone of voice. Penmex Ltd urges everyone to evaluate their personal body language and to understand what it says about them as an individual.
Penmex Ltd offers their tips on improving body language perception:
Relax, and be yourself – The primary emphasis should be on understanding which personal body language traits are throwing negative signals to others, and obtaining focus and control over these. To begin with, it is good practice to focus on the head, neck, and shoulders. Keeping the head held high, shoulders back and taking relaxed breaths creates an aura of confidence and honesty.
Practice makes perfect - Building rapport in business is crucial to developing a successful career, and having good body language habits will likely open up new doors of opportunity. A few simple ways to communicate open body language include standing up straight, smiling, uncrossing arms and legs, and actively showing palms of hands, as this is often perceived as an honest approach.
People often are receptive to body mirroring, so when communicating with a single individual, attempt to mirror their stance to offer an agreeable opinion without words. Practice over time at every opportunity and habits will develop that are natural to a person’s persona.
