Elevator Pitch Clinic
this is my third law. Body language. The law of majority, the majority of our communication is nonverbal, that when we're talking about body language, we have to remember that our body language is hugely important. If you're going into a pitch, you're going on a date, you have to think about what you're gonna say and how you're gonna say it. So both. All right, I want to talk to you about an interesting aspect of nonverbal and it's that when we meet someone and their verbal is not congruent or not aligned with their nonverbal, so what they say, they say, I'm happy, but they show that they're sad in the in studies and research what they found is that people always believe the nonverbal. So if they're presented with someone who says, oh yeah, I really like this person, but they show dislike on their face, the brain knows discredit the word, and I always listen to the nonverbal. So that's an important thing for us to think about in terms of how we value what we say. And my goal in this co...
urse is to make sure that we're aligning that we're not showing power, body language, we're not feeling super powerful. My goal is to get you into a powerful mindset. So the powerful body language is aligned with your words. Um it's not about making them so that you're showing off your body, I want them to be the same. So they're absolutely can grow and that's really important for your brand, especially whether you have a personal brand or business band brand, you want to make sure that what you're saying you are, is what you're showing that you are So in a networking event, I love to people watch, you know, as, as the host mentioned earlier, I wish I could be a professional people watch in a way that I am, I love to watch you a networking event because you can almost always tell who the office crushes who the boss is in the room. People will typically subconsciously align their toes in their body with that person. And you can also tell when someone wants to go, we subconsciously point our feet towards the exit when we want to leave. It is our brains way of being like you're on the way there. Um so when I'm talking with someone networking about or even a meeting, I'll pay attention because if I see their feet are like aiming towards the bathroom also you want to take a break because I can actually see their body is saying I need a break for a second. So uh feet are an interesting way that our brain leaks out. What we're actually feeling this is a small part of the body language of attraction. Now this is a business course. So we're not gonna be talking a lot about attraction, but why I think it's important is because in business you attraction and influence are kind of two sides of the same coin, they're very, very closely aligned Alphas garner a huge amount of attraction. People who are a natural leaders. They're natural born leaders. Most people will subconsciously point their feet towards them because they feel like they can gather everyone around them. So attraction influence are actually quite aligned in the business world.
