Video Tip #1 – Breathing

Breathing seems simple enough, so why would we bother covering it in a video about nonverbal communication? Many people will agree that the most useful nonverbal they’ve learned is how to control their breathing. Breathing naturally and comfortably, no matter the situation, delivers a nonverbal message of confidence and poise. Breathing is more than supplying oxygen to your lungs. It profoundly influences your mood, how your brain functions, how sensitive your nerves are, and how tired or alert you feel, as well as those around you.

Video Tip #2 – Gestures

A gesture is a movement or series of movements used to communicate a message. Gestures and nonverbal movements or behaviors are part of who we are. Most often our movements are organic and spontaneous. Sometimes they represent what we are saying, and sometimes they don’t. We frequently display emotions and thoughts non-verbally. You want to be sensitive to the power that nonverbals have and deliberately choose those that support your message. Match your words with intentional gestures, each gesture made for a specific purpose.

Video Tip #3 – Eye Contact

Eye contact is the easiest and most immediate nonverbal that people notice. It can be subtle or direct, and knowing how to mix the two is a major part of the art of building relationships. How much is too much or too little varies with the culture, gender, and context. Eye contact works best when both parties feel it is just right. Therefore, take your cues from the other person and match their preference for how much direct eye contact to use.
