When engaged in human interaction our bodies are actively involved in an involuntary silent symphony of non-verbal cues by constantly sending involuntary messages to our audience.
Non-verbal communication plays a crucial role in leadership, not just in how we are perceived by others but also in how we perceive ourselves. When leaders are unaware of what their body is saying, it can create challenges that go beyond just the normal day-to-day problems of running an organization.
