    68. Creating Self-Awareness Through Body Language

    68. Creating Self-Awareness Through Body Language

    Have you wondered why conversations end a little too quickly, and people seem to walk away before you're finished speaking?
    It’s estimated that up to 80% of our communications are non-verbal. So, understanding body language enables better self-awareness and self-control too, for you and your conversation partner(s).
    The better we understand non-verbals, the better able we are to refine and improve what our body says about us, which generates a positive improvement in the way we feel, the way we perform, and what we achieve.
    Body language allows us to understand more about our own and other people's feelings and meanings, and that can make all the difference in the world when we feel as though we’re not being heard, the feeling we’ve been overlooked, or that we’ve been slighted.
    Our reactions to other people's movements and expressions and their reactions to ours contributes greatly to our mutual understanding, both consciously and unconsciously.

    The quest for better conversations is always a top topic request, and that makes sense because it is one of the best ways to connect with other people.
    Having a conversation requires some skill because they’re often spontaneous and informal – meaning you need to be able to think on your feet. Because being a good conversationalist can make such a huge impact on your life, this is definitely a skill you want to work on.
     
    In your professional life, having good conversation skills can help you increase sales, your job performance, form positive working relationships, and gain new clients
     
    In your social life, being a good conversationalist can help you attract a mate and build (and maintain) relationships. In short, there is no downside to being at ease while in conversation.
     
    It is scientifically proven that rehearsing any upcoming scene in your mind will improve your performance when the time comes to step up and do that thing for real.

    66. The Power of Kindness in Connecting with Donna Cameron

    66. The Power of Kindness in Connecting with Donna Cameron

    The power of kindness as a means to create meaningful connections between people cannot be overstated.  It is part of a social cycle in which at least one dominant participant extends a visible hand or a virtual olive branch to gain trust and offer genuine, authentic assistance.
    When we truly understand that each of our lives is intertwined with few degrees of separation, kindness, compassion, and collaboration flow much more naturally in interpersonal interactions, socially, in the workplace, and extending into the community. In short, we are in this together.
    Kindness has everything to do with solid social or people skills, and when you work on perfecting the skill of selflessness, you will find it easier to strike up conversations, speak from your heart on stage, and connect with people with the power of a super magnet.
    Donna Cameron’s book is A Year of Living Kindly, and it will guide you in managing interactions with warmth and kindness.

    65. Creating Higher Level Thoughts to Alleviate Social Anxiety

    65. Creating Higher Level Thoughts to Alleviate Social Anxiety

    Most of our thoughts are prompted by our current environment, and we can’t help but think about what’s right in front of us. What we see and experience becomes what we think.
     
    The issue is our evolutionary training, or in other words, our brain’s propensity to keep us safe and out of harm’s way— and this can include showing up, speaking up, and doing things that our brain says may be scary.
    That is a big problem when you’re in business and you want to look good and be in the spotlight because every day your brain wants to keep you safe, but intellectually you want to excel, but you’re in a holding pattern.
    This week’s episode will help you better manage your mind to think better, higher quality thoughts and begin to work towards a life that is free of social anxiety.

    64. Being Socially Visible in Business

    64. Being Socially Visible in Business

    It goes without saying that you want to make a profit, in business, but you can’t earn anything if people do not know about you. Increasing your visibility is essential to the success of your business or your job. As an executive or an owner, you might find yourself short on time to meet new people, and you could lose opportunities to grow your business.
    How you spend your time is as important as where you spend it. You can differentiate your brand from your competitors and stand out to customers in many ways. Your brand is what makes you memorable and unique. The visibility of your business depends on how you build up your personal brand.
