Body Language 101

Body Language 101 by @morejanda // 93% of all communication is nonverbal. Body language speaks loudly.

Head: Stand tall. Shoulders back.

Eyes: Make eye contact for a few seconds at a time. Blink occasionally. No crazy staring.

Smile: Fake smiles are long. Real smiles are short. Practice in a mirror.

Hands: Be first to reach out for a handshake. Firm but not tight. No limp handshakes.

Legs: Don’t cross your legs when standing. It is ok to cross legs when sitting. Follow the behaviors of others in the meeting.⠀

Feet: Keep feet planted narrower than hips. No shifting weight excessively.

Lean: We lean toward people we like. We lean away from people we dislike.

Control Energy: Don’t move fast or overly energetic. Keep movements slow and controlled.

Arms Length: Don’t invade their personal space. Arms length is proper distance.
