Communication skills 101 is about how we hold ourselves. What our bodies say about us.
Posturing = power dynamics + lack of awareness.
Posturing def’n = a particular way of behaving that is intended to convey a false impression. When someone is posturing they’re trying to hide how they feel inside.
Posture + power = how we hold our body, how much (or how little) space we take up. When we strike a pose with our posture we can convey a whole lot (or little) power.
Often when someone is posturing they’re acting out a perspective that doesn’t feel natural to them, a Life Lens™ that doesn’t fit so well. A Go Life Lens™ trying to act more reflective or a Stop Life Lens™ trying to be spontaneous.
Watch how even a moose reacts to posturing and power.
Communicate & strike a pose. Just don’t posture.
