Leaders can sometimes communicate more without words than with them.
A leader doesn’t always need to use words to convey meaning; non-verbal cues often say more than words can ever do.
Unfortunately, too often non-verbal cues are displayed to the wrong effect, that is, to display distraction, disregard or even distaste.
We have prepared a presentation to introduce and discuss some important points about this interesting subject.

Transcript

  • 1. How to Lead Without Saying a Word
  • 2. Introduction
    • Leaders can sometimes communicate more without words than with them.
    • What matters is poise and conviction.
  • 3. Important
    • A leader doesn’t always need to use words to convey meaning; non-verbal cues often say more than words can ever do.
    • Unfortunately, too often non-verbal cues are displayed to the wrong effect, that is, to display distraction, disregard or even distaste.
  • 4. Leader – Be Careful
    • Those in charge, especially those in very senior positions, must be careful not only with their words but with their body language.
  • 5. Relax your Facial Muscles
    • It is important to share a calm body language when talking to people.
    • When we do so, we seem more approachable, and as we are able to connect better with our subordinates and colleagues.
    • We can practice relaxing our facial muscles by looking in a mirror.
  • 6. Invite Inspection
    • Ask a trusted colleague to watch your facial expressions and your posture during a meeting, particularly a meeting where there will be intense discussions.
    • If you look bored or irritated, or if you are slumped in your seat looking out the window, you are sending a message that you would rather be elsewhere.
  • 7. Invite Inspection
    • If your face bears a severe expression, you may be radiating irritation.
    • Be conscious that people are not only listening to what you say, but how you carry yourself when you say it.
  • 8. Keep your Powder Dry
    • In some cultures, notably Native American and Scandinavian, the person at the top says very little, often speaking last on important issues.
    • Business leaders can also encourage subordinates to speak first and freely; only interject when you have something of real substance to add.
  • 9. Keep your Powder Dry
    • When the fur is flying, what gets people's attention is quiet confidence.
    • Don't raise your voice. Instead, once you have people's attention, speak calmly and with conviction. Nothing radiates power like controlled emotions when everyone else is shouting at each other.
  • 10. Leaders Facial Expressions
    • Leaders need not walk around with facial expressions that appear "botoxed.“
    • If real issues are at stake, it is wholly appropriate to show some emotion, and not simply with words.
  • 11. Leaders Facial Expressions
    • A leader is entitled to communicate with authority and vigor, and make it known the urgency of a moment.
    • Such emotion expended for a good cause is a great way to focus attention on important matters at hand.
  • 12. Conclusion
    • We should be aware how to behave in front of our subordinates and colleagues since our body language can help or jeopardize our instructions.
    • Learning to understand signals from our body language and voice is a good way to improve our communication and leadership skills.
