Body Language Online Course - Outline

Module One - Getting Started

Module Two -Communicating with Body Language

We communicate even if we don't speak, and half of what we say is made up of unspoken language. It improves negotiating, management, and interpersonal skills by helping us correctly interpret body language and important signals.

Learning a New Language

Understanding body language is similar to learning a foreign language. Below are some tips on how to make learning a new language easier.

  • Set goals
  • Devote time to learning
  • Practice daily
  • Enjoy the process

The Power of Body Language

Understanding body language enables you to get an insight into the thoughts and feelings of the people around you. Body language is an unconscious form of communication, and often people betray their real intentions with their body language.

More than Words

Non-verbal communications make up most of the way people communicate. Body language is manifested physically and not tone or pitch.

Actions Speak Louder than Words

The actions or the body language that we display are stronger than the words that we say. We can act differently from the actual words coming out of our mouth.

Module Three – Reading Body Language

In this module, we will discuss how to accurately read body language to get valuable insight and improve communication. This can be done by paying attention to the positions and movements. Specifically, their head positions, physical gestures, and eyes.

Head Position

The head is a rich source of information about a person’s feelings and thoughts. The position of the head and movements are just some of the obvious indicators.

Translating Gestures into Words

Studies show that the part of the brain responsible for comprehending words is also responsible for interpreting gestures.  We use gestures when we speak; it is also used to reinforce a message.

Open Vs. Closed Body Language

Body language can be defined as being open or closed. People who exhibit an open body language can come from passivity, aggression, acceptance, supplication, or relaxation. Closed body language can be due to a person’s desire to hide, self-protection, cold, or relaxation.

The Eyes Have it

The eyes are often referred to as the windows to the soul and for a good reason. The eyes are an important factor when reading a person’s body language. When combined with body position, the eyes can provide an accurate interpretation of a person’s thoughts and ideas.

Module Four – Body Language Mistakes

Without the right training, it can be easy to send the wrong message with a body language mistake. This part of the Body Language Basics Online course, you will learn how to prevent body language mistakes, become aware of these factors, and think carefully when reading body language.

Poor Posture

Poor posture is often interpreted as a person who lacks self-confidence. Posture often leads to unfair judgments and prejudices. We could always improve our posture, but this can be difficult for people suffering from musculoskeletal structural ailments.

Invading Personal Space

Going into another person's space can be interpreted as an act of hostility. The space between people is based on social situations: public, social or business interactions, personal zone, close relationships, and intimate relationships.  

Quick Movements

Quick movements may be interpreted as a sign of nervousness. It can also be used to draw attention to specific information when speaking. Consistent jerking movements, however, should not be interpreted as something negative. A person might be displaying quick movements due to several reasons, both emotionally and physically.

Fidgeting

Fidgeting is often displayed during the interview and social settings. It can indicate nervousness, stress, and other strong emotions.

Module Five – Gender Differences

Men and women may exhibit some differences in how they communicate. Similar body language can be confusing when displayed by men and women.  

Facial Expressions

Men and women share universal facial expressions. Women smile more often compared to men. Their smiles can be a sign of conforming with accepted social behaviors. Men, on the other hand, are less likely to smile unless they genuinely feel they are happy.

Personal Distances

Every individual has their own concept of what personal space is, which is the distance another person must maintain to keep them comfortable.

Female Body Language

Culture can influence what is considered appropriate body language in women. Female body language changes over time and is not universal to all women. However, women do have some common basic actions.

Male Body Language

Male body language, in general, is seen as being more aggressive and dominating. Just like their female counterparts, male body language is not universal.

Module Six – Nonverbal Communication

Our nonverbal communication has a profound effect on how our message is received. Interpreting body language is important, but it is equally important to understand what our nonverbal communication is telling others.

Common Gestures

Many of us may not know the different gestures, movements, or mannerisms that we make. To be sure we are sending the right message, we must be aware of the gestures that we make.

It’s Not What You Say, It’s How You Say It

Miscommunication can be caused by several factors, including how we communicate. To ensure that we are sending the right message, we must consider the tone, pitch, and timbre of our voice.

What Your Posture Says

Posture can say a lot about a person. Having good posture improved physical and emotional health. Slouching can be interpreted as a sign of insecurity or weakness. Confident people, on the other hand, exhibit good posture.

Module Seven – Facial Expressions

Our facial expression speaks volumes even without us uttering a single word. Some facial expressions are cultural, while some are universal. In this module, we will understand the basics of facial expressions and how to decode them.

Linked with Emotion

Many scientists agree that facial expressions are linked to emotions. Different feelings elicit physical responses, and this is often reflected in our facial expressions. 

Micro-Expressions

We often hide negative or unwanted emotions when it is inappropriate, especially during social gatherings. However, this can occasionally slip out in the for of micro-expressions. When this happens, involuntary expressions can betray emotions.

Facial Action Coding Systems (FACS)

The Facial Action Coding System (FACS) breaks down the muscle movements of micro-expressions into numbered action units (AUs).

Universal Facial Expressions

Many facial expressions are learned from one’s family and culture. However, there are universal facial expressions that people share in common. Below are some of the most common facial expressions:

  • Happiness
  • Anger
  • Fear
  • Surprise
  • Sadness
  • Disgust

Module Eight – Body Language in Business

Communicate with Power

Powerful communication breeds confidence and respect, but this should be sensed without aggression.

Cultural Differences

Conducting business internationally requires us to be sensitive to cultural differences. While certain expressions are universally recognized, many gestures are based on cultural sensitivities.

Building Trust

Use body language that builds trust with business partners. Personal perceptions build trust. To create rapport, you can start by removing barriers, smiling, relaxing, and listen actively.

Mirroring

Mirroring occurs when we copy the movements and gestures of others to show similarities. Women are more adept at mirroring. It can be very useful in a business meeting to help you build rapport with a client or colleague.

Module Nine – Lying and Body Language

Our body language can betray us and expose deception. An observant person can detect if someone is hiding someone by closely watching their body language.

Watch Their Hands

Consciously or unconsciously, the hands play a part when communicating. Some hand movements can indicate that someone if hiding something.

Forced Smiles

Smiles can be deceiving. It immediately sends a message that the person talking is amicable, but not all smiles are the same. A forced smile, for example, can indicate deception or someone who is trying to get your guard down.

Eye Contact

The eyes have aptly been called the “windows to the soul.” A person who is constantly avoiding eye contact with the person who is talking with maybe trying to hide something or outright lying.

Changes in Posture

A person's posture can be an indication that they are deceptive. In an attempt to hide a lie, a person may put great effort into controlling their body language or shift posture.

Module Ten – Improve your Body Language

People tend to make judgments based on body language. This is why improving your body language can help you make a better impression. In this module, we will discuss how understanding the subtleties of body language makes it easier to improve your own. 

  • Be aware of your movements
  • The power of confidence
  • Position and posture
  • Practice in a mirror

Module Eleven - Matching your Words to your Movement

The key to building trust with the people your speaking to is matching body language to the words spoken. Gestures will easily match what is being said if the words reflect genuine feelings.

  • Involuntary movements
  • Say what you mean
  • Always be consistent
  • Actions will trump words
