Inside My Body Language Briefcase – When I’m asked to assess someone’s body language for a law firm, a group of Venture Capitalists, Angel Investors, or law enforcement, I have a specific set of guidelines or “tools” I go by and use. This is my chance to let you take a look inside my Body Language Briefcase and share with you the 5 tools I use in every one of those meetings.
I will very quickly explain what the tools are. Then, I will give you the details and show you exactly how and when I use them, and for which specific situations. You can adapt those to your style and teach others on your team or in your company to use them as well…
For the next week or so, I’ll walk you through the main points so you can get an idea of how simple these techniques are to understand and use. So let’s get started.
First things first. Before we go any further, you must empty your brain of everything you’ve learned about body language up to this point in your life. Why? Because 87% of the information the average person has gathered and uses every day concerning body language is incorrect and/or incomplete. That means you can’t go forward using that bad information combined with the valid information you are about to acquire. Trust me on this.
So, before we open the body language briefcase, dump everything in your body language junk drawer in the trash. All of it.
Now, take a deeeeep breath… Innnnn…… And… ouuuttt… Ah. Feels like a big weight has been lifted off your brain, huh? Excellent.
Tool #1 is one of the most important tools in my body language briefcase. It’s easy to use and incredibly simple.
A “Pre-Loaded Brain” is equipped with specific information concerning the people and/or company you’re meeting with.
Once the proper information is collected, the rest the tools will work smoothly, cleanly, and quickly, so you can take control and get everything you need from the meeting. In the next post we’ll go over how easy it is to do that, what specific information you want, where and how to get that information, why you want this specific information, and what to do with it once you’ve collected it. And believe me, it’s not what you think.
