Communication skills 101 (or how to posture with a moose)

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.
