The Language of Confidence
The Power of Body Language and Using It Effectively
In this episode, herdacious host Lorelei chats with Lisa Mitchell to discuss the nuance of body language in the workplace and how we can use it to exude confidence. Lisa explains that our non-verbal cues do the talking for us and, oftentimes, create a lasting impression with our colleagues. From arm crossing to the way we claim our physical space at the office, Lisa explains that our actions communicate more about ourselves than we realize. Our actions truly do speak louder than words and we have the power to control those messages.
