TIP OF THE WEEK:
Last week and tip #1 was about learning to read others:
- Practice of observing the posture in others and their tone of voice as they speak. Consider the state of their emotions and the story they are telling themselves.
This weeks tip #2:
- Now notice how the body and spoken language of others affect you. Begin to explore how they influence your thoughts in either a negative or positive way. Notice if your reaction is to stay open with understanding or do you close off and dismiss their contribution? What is your body language?
This week notice your body language, comfort level and thoughts that arise with your employees, peers and clients. Ask yourself, “How am I being influenced by ………..?
- Observe your tone of voice, body stance (soft and comfortable or rigid and controlled)
All skilled, influence-empowered people harness their own behavior first.

TIP for this WEEK – JUNE 21ST:
Learn to read others:
- Did you try the exercise for releasing tension and changing your mood?
- If you did you will have experienced how body can affect the mind.
- Now how can you take this information to support others to bring them into the connection you are hoping for?
This first step is taking it to the next level. At work (and home) start to notice the tension in others. If you are feeling bored you start fidgeting. If you are frightened you may experience a dry mouth. Become curious about what others are experiencing in your interactions.
This week begin a practice of observing the posture in others and their tone of voice as they speak. Consider the state of their emotions and the story they are telling themselves.
All skilled, influence-empowered people begin with this first step.
