Body Language in Business
This 55-page document covers the topic of how to read physical language signs and gestures. Body Language is a significant aspect of modern communications and relationships. Understanding the physiological and physical signs is very relevant to management and leadership. For all aspects of work and business, where communications can be seen and physically observed among people.
Additionally, body language is also very relevant to relationships outside of work, for example in dating and mating, and in families and parenting. This document will also cover these non-work/-business aspects of body language.
Body language goes both ways:
* Your own body language reveals your feelings and meanings to others.
* Other people’s body language reveals their feelings and meanings to you.
NLP is the practice of understanding how people organise their thinking, feeling, language and behaviour to produce results. Neurolinguistic programming provides people with a methodology to model outstanding performances achieved by leaders in their field. Therefore, N.L.P. is also used for personal development and for success in business
A key element of NLP is that we form our unique internal mental maps of the world. A product of the way we filter and perceive information through our five senses, from the world around us.
Each individual has established their own unique mental filtering system for processing the millions of bits of data being absorbed through the senses. Our first mental map of the world is constituted of internal images, sounds, tactile awareness, internal sensations, tastes and smells that form as result of the neurological filtering process. The first mental map is called ‘First Access’.
We then assign personal meaning to the information being received from the world outside. We form our second mental map by assigning language to the internal images, sounds and feelings, tastes and smells, thus forming everyday conscious awareness. The second mental map is called the Linguistic Map (sometimes known as Linguistic Representation)
The behavioural response that occurs as a result of neurological filtering processes and the subsequent linguistic map.
