Whether you’re aware of it or not, you’re continually sending out wordless signals when you use expressions, mannerisms and physical body movement. In fact, over 55% of a message is communicated non-verbally, through your body language. This is why it’s so important that you have good insight into your own body language and are able to interpret the body languge of others which helps you understand the true meaning of a message being communicated.

Words are powerful. They can be helpful, hurtful, influential, and create positive and negative reactions in others. The words you choose to use give insight into the type of person you are which is why it’s so important that you practice the art of thinking before you speak, or press send.

Almost 40% of a message is communicated through the tone, pitch and pace of your voice. How your spoken and written words sound will tell people a lot about your mood, emotions, attitude and the ideas you’re presenting. When the words you speak or write conflict with your tone, pitch and pace, people become confused. This mismatch sets off alarm signals in the human brain and people will trust you less, which then affects your ability to communicate well.
