Bust Your Gut! Your Gut Reactions to Body Language

Bust Your Gut!

If you have come to this article looking for tips on reducing belly fat, you’ll be disappointed. I’m writing here about that “gut feeling.” The subconscious ruler of our lives which quietly sabotages our communication and ruins business deals, relationships and meetings.

We are learning much more about our gut in all areas of science. The sheer number of neurons (over 100 million) sending information back to the brain has given it the nickname “second brain.” Your ‘gut feeling’ isn’t just cliché.

How does this second brain ruin our communication? It enables our assumptions.  Either our “gut feeling” tells our brain everything is fine and going great when maybe it isn’t; or it tells us we are failing and to run away from the situation. Don’t let your gut win and rule your communication!

How can we prevent wrong assumptions?

Take a moment to stop talking and look at the person/people in the room. BEFORE you barrel ahead because you think everything is great or tuck your tail and end the conversation thinking you are tanking…STOP, LOOK and LISTEN!

  • What are their bodies telling you?
  • Are they engaged or disengaged?
  • Are they confused or clear?
  • What do they need from you next?

The behavior of the others in the room will tell you what you need to know and what to do next. IF you know what you are looking for.

This is where body language experts come in. We don’t expect you to be able to decode movement language like we can. However, we CAN teach you significant signs and signals to look for and what to do when you see them! Body language books only go so far in helping you because you need to decode movement rather than stationary poses. The subconscious signals your gut takes in are based on how people are moving more than their stationary poses. You need a program with live video examples or live demonstration.

Moving Image Consulting’s new program, Read the Room, is your gut busting secret weapon! In this self-paced program, you will learn how to read signals from others and understand what they mean! Being able to label the behavior you are seeing will revolutionize your communication. You will be able to circumvent your gut monster and choose words to be more persuasive, clear, concise and powerful.
