Body Language: The Most Important Aspect of Communication
Communication plays a very important role in professional life and we all need to make sure that we have learned all the aspects of proper communication so that we can progress in our careers. When it comes to communication, we put a lot of emphasis on speech and written communication but we often fail to realize that body language is one of the most important means of communication which tells more about us than the way we speak or write emails. Body language can send a lot stronger signals than words or written text.
Since the body language is primarily controlled by the subconscious mind of every individual, so it can actually reveal if there’s difference in what you are saying and what you are actually thinking. However, like everything else you can control you body language and practice it to make sure that your words are in accordance with the body language at all times.
You need to make sure that you know which gestures you need to avoid while talking to someone at work and what kind of gestures can make you appear more positive and confident. You can also learn to show your disappointment and disapproval with your body language rather than expressing yourself in words.
When you are communicating with someone your facial expressions and eye movements can play a very important role in conveying your personal feelings. For instance if you are heading a meeting and you concentrate your attention only one or two people, the others will get bored and their attention will not be focused on you for long. So it is extremely important to make sure that you have the appropriate body language that can help you in conveying the right message.
