What did you just say? We don’t just talk with our hands – we talk with our whole bodies. And sometimes we have no idea what we really just communicated.
As team members, coaches and leaders – it’s essential that we connect with others and congruently communicate so that our message gets heard. Join us in this hands-on session to learn & practice skills to establish rapport quickly with individuals and groups. Discover body stances based on psychological archetypes that can either support or distract from your message. This session is ideal for anyone who wants to be a more effective influencer and coach by making sure their body language matches their words.
Learning Outcomes:
  • Describe what rapport is and its benefits in communicating with agile teams
  • Practice establishing rapport to pace and lead teams and individuals
  • Learn and practice 5 body stances based on Virginia Satir’s psychological archetypes
  • Learn one body stance that saps the power of effective communication & how to eradicate its habitual appearance
  • Be able to immediately apply these techniques in daily conversations with individuals and agile teams
