This is Tip #10 in a series of 10 relationship building reminders.
You made it. You read, thought about and hopefully have internalized the last nine non-verbal tips which will help you position yourself as somebody “special.”
My final tip in this series titled Non-Verbal Behaviors reminds us to slow down. Slow down and think. Think about what it is we are trying to communicate.
Your options include coolness, disinterest, enthusiasm, excitement, negativity, or some other feeling. You can manage your own energy by identifying an emotion that you want to portray and then holding that emotional word in mind as you communicate.
Start by watching others. Begin by observing others and see if you can identify their emotional energy. You will begin to notice their demeanor and how it impacts how their message is delivered…and received. You will see what you like and dislike about their actions.
Here is a quote from an article I spotted on the Internet not too long ago. I have since lost the source, sorry.
“Your nonverbal behavior, the way you speak, act, and express emotion, helps you establish rapport and personal connection with others. Likewise, your unspoken messaging can establish trust and acceptance with other people. Your credibility will also improve as you use your verbal and nonverbal skills to increase the power of your message.”
