“Parlez-vous francais?” “Habla usted espanol?” “Do you speak English?”
Communication is carried out in every language, and also without words. From smoke signals to flag signals and sign language, we practice many forms of communication regularly. Are you fluent in speaking and reading body language? If you’re in business, you should be. Whether you command the top of the corporate ladder, or are busy climbing it, speaking and reading body language fluently is vital to continued success.
Body language speaks loud and clear, sometimes drowning out or contradicting our spoken communications. Your continued upward career could well depend on the body language you “speak,” or portray, and how well you “read” others. It’s in your best interest to know the power of unspoken signals in communication.
We can misread the body language others present: no one is infallible. But we need not confuse or offer body language ourselves for others to misinterpret. “Say what you mean and mean what you say” should be a motto for both spoken and body language. We don’t want anything to trip us as we climb the ladder to success in business or life in general.
