Do you have good body language? Questionnaire
If you're interested in improving your body language, have a look at this fantastic one-day Communication Skills course.
In many situations your body language, is very important to the proper perception of your message.
Your body language is not one thing. Your body language is made up of a number of subsets, each one can be developed as a separate skill. The subsets of body language are:
Posture, Dress code, Touch, Hand and arm gestures, Eye contact, Facial expression, Angle, Proximity, Scent (smell)
If you have great body language, i.e. you have a great visual impact, then that can make your message more powerful and appealing.
If you have shoddy body language, i.e. if you present a horrifying visual image, then the good content of your message could lose its power and its appeal.
Take this simple questionnaire to discover, to what degree you are using your body language to your own best advantage.
Simply answer the questions and we will immediately send you your Body Language Intelligence Test (BLIT score) out of 100, together with an action plan that will give you the steps to take to improve your ability to communicate with your body.
This questionnaire is free, it is informative and fun.
