“The face is the mirror of the mind, and eyes without speaking confess the secrets of the heart.”

St. Jerome quotes

Many studies show that we use body language extensively when we communicate, especially when we are in an emotional state. Since many of our achievements in life depend on how well we interact with others, it is quite critical to know how to communicate beyond using words.

Imagine how much you can gain if you knew how to read people just by observing their gestures, postures, body orientation, hands and facial expressions. Imagine if you could read their minds even if they have not said a single word. Knowledge of body language  can greatly help you with improving your relationship with people, whether professionally or in your personal life. Many times, a simple eye contact can make all the difference in gaining a person’s trust and building rapport, leading to better communication.


Visual and Modular Design

There are many non-verbal signals to learn about such as hands, arms and legs placements, body orientation, gestures and other signals. Body language is highly visual and the best way to learn is by imitation, observing case studies and roleplays. As a result, this course is specifically designed in a modular way around examples or what we call ‘Body Language Cards’.

To teach delegates, you simply need to show an image of a case or illustrate it yourself, discuss it with delegates, get them to practice it and then move on to the next case.

Integrate with Other Courses

Since body language is applicable to many soft skills courses, you can use the modular design to address body language in any of your courses. Simply pick the appropriate ‘Body Language Cards’ from this package and integrate them to your other courses such as conflict management, customer service skills, anger management and communication skills.

What Is New in Version 2.0

The training materials have gone under a major revision and update. Since the course is mainly visual, we wanted to make sure you get the best and most expressive artwork. You can easily integrate these artworks in your courses when you want to teach body language. 

The updates are as follows: 

  • In-house design. All artwork has been internally designed for the purpose of this course and rendered in 3D with great attention to posing, drapery, lighting and finished quality. 
  • Includes PNG images. The artwork is provided in the workbook and the slides as usual, but we have also included them as separate files in the package. So now you have all the images in PNG, with alpha transparency for background. Please see licensing and extended rights below to see how you can use these images. 
  • 4K resolution. Images in the workbook can be printed with a minimum resolution of 300 DPI. Each course in the series contains in excess of 50 images.
  • Updated text and cases. All text has been reviewed and cases have been updated or added to make the course consistent within the Body Language Series. 
  • Updated layout. The workbook layout has been updated to make it easier to use or edit if you want to add your own content. 
  • Stylish slides. The slides have all been updated to reflect the new artwork and to make them look stylish. 

There is an introduction to body language included in Part 1 which is now present only in this product. Bear in mind that if you are teaching other parts of the series, you still have to go through an introduction of some kind for your delegates. For example, you can use the intro included in Part 1 so that they know how to interpret body language correctly and not make conclusions based on a single signal.

In this highly practical course delegates will learn:

  • What body language is all about
  • Universal gestures
  • How to read body language
  • How to avoid misinterpretation and deliberate faking
  • Positive versus negative body language
  • Confidence and frustration
  • Eye contacts and eye cues
  • Lies, dishonesty, doubts and thinking

Many elaborate topics are covered. Examples are:

  • What is the difference between showing the back of your hand or your palm?
  • How would you respond to a dominant handshaker who wants to show they are in charge?
  • How would you know if someone is nervous even if they display signals that are signs of confidence?
  • Where to look at in someone else’s face to appear trustworthy or to be taken seriously?
  • How can you spot liars based on their gestures?
  • How would you know what someone has decided before they state it?
  • How would you know if someone is not convinced, despite showing that they are still thinking about your argument?

This course is continued with Body Language Part 2 which contains more advanced gestures and postures provided in the same format.

About the Design Philosophy of Body Language Part 1 Course

This course is designed from the outset to cover two needs. One is to provide a one- day course on body language that covers various non-verbal gestures and increases delegate’s awareness about them.

The other need is that many soft skills courses require the inclusion of a session or chapter on body language since any course on communication skills should probably cover this topic.

Rather than including body language in many of our soft skills courses, we provide them here in our Body Language Series of products and let you mix and match how you see fit. As a result we don’t include body language in other products so you can get them uniquely here.

For example, you can pick a series of ‘Body Language Cards’ on greetings, personal impact and handshaking and include them in courses such as Conflict Management, Customer Service Skills or Personal Impact.

As with all of our training materials, you have the right to modify the content and we think the modularity of this course, combined with the ability to edit the content, and the extended rights for the images will make your life as a trainer or course designer a lot easier.
