Jordan Harbinger on Social Influence – Tony Robbins Podcast
Do you know what’s at the core of any successful business? Quality relationships. The relationships you build with your employees, coworkers, vendors and clients all impact your company’s success in the long run.
Social capital can become one of the most valuable tools your company offers, as it creates a level of trust, understanding and even loyalty that will allow your business to thrive, even in uncertain times. In short, social capital is power. But how do you build these powerful relationships to help your company thrive? Oftentimes, the answer is as simple as working on your communication — specifically, nonverbal communication skills.
Research suggests that more than 90% of what others interpret from you comes from nonverbal communication. This includes things like making eye contact, how you’re holding your body or crossing your legs. Facial expressions and posture also come into play when looking to explain nonverbal communication.
Human beings make judgments about you right off the bat based on how you present yourself nonverbally — do you walk into a room confidently, or are you hunched over and presenting as insecure? By bolstering our nonverbal communication techniques, we can build trust with colleagues, grab the attention of others during meetings and make lasting connections with those around us.
