In any given situation you use your body and voice continuously to communicate with your surroundings; it can be colleagues, clients, potential clients, friends or family. In our body language training we focus on understanding how non-verbal communication affects your communication and how you can improve and further develop how you communicate and the impact of it.
At the beginning of every session we have a warm up routine. We will go through some physical exercises to stretch and prepare your body for the session. The program is focused on six different themes; body language, analytical skills, eye contact, interpretation, breathing and vocal training.
- Body language. We will work with postures, awareness, creating good habits and learn how to use the body in a neutral position.
- Analytical skills. In order to generate new and improved behavior we will analyze each participant’s body language and movements. You will learn how to assess your own body language and how you can develop your non-verbal communication.
- Eye contact. How and where you look when you talk is an important part of how you communicate. With practical exercises we will work with how you can use looking as a conscious part of your non-verbal communication and how to find the right balance when it comes to eye contact.
- Interpretation. Reading and interpreting the gestures from others will help your intercommunication skills, with practical exercises and examples we will improve your interpretation skills.
- Breathing. Learning how to use your breath can affect your ability to use your voice. Abdominal breathing is a great stress reliever as well, which can be helpful when speaking in front of an audience.
- Vocal training. We focus on having a clear voice, articulating and projecting to an audience. We consider how the intensity, rhythm and direction of your voice will affect your message.
We will end each session with a relaxation routine that will help us calm down.
The program is ideally for groups of 8 - 20 and it is aimed at all types of professionals. The training should go on for at least 4 sessions, but it can be adapted to the specific group.
