If you want to be persuasive, DO NOT ignore your nonverbal communication

Hola Todos!

I’ve said it more than once and I will say it 100 times more:  “less than 10% of total communication is actual words coming out of your mouth.”  If you want to be persuasive, do not neglect non-verbal communication.

In an excellent post that I had to share, Julie Bawden Davis detailed “5 body language poses that can sabotage your success.”  Item #4 on the list is eye contact and of all the non-verbal communication we give, I have always stressed that eye contact is the most critical.

Check out all 5 today…

Body Language Can Kill Your Interview (or Sale)!

Hola Todos!

For those of you who have been tortured in one of my professional selling classes, you have heard me say, “less than 10% of total communication is actual words coming out of your mouth.”  In other words, your body language, your tone of voice, and your eye content are more important than the actual words you use in an interview or a client meeting.

Translation:  you can say everything right and still screw up the meeting!

The following article emphasizes this very point – particularly the eye contact.  In my opinion, non-verbal communication is one of the most overlooked elements in relationship building.

Something to think about today…
