Episode 22: Body Language Secrets – Simple Tricks For Getting Confident, Building Trust & Reading People’s Minds! Interview with Blake Eastman of The Nonverbal Group

People get so concerned with nailing their presentation that they forget to be natural and comfortable, and it’s that anxiety that produces behaviours that make them less effective.

Blake Eastman Nonverbal Group Christina Canters Design Draw SpeakThis week I am thrilled to be sharing with you the secrets of body language hacker, former professional poker player and serial entrepreneur Blake Eastman.

Ever wondered what your body language reveals about you? Blake Eastman’s the man to ask! As the founder of The Nonverbal Group, Blake teaches people how to use nonverbal communication to be confident and successful in situations like business meetings, presentations, dating and other social interactions. Fascinating stuff!

I took a class with Blake and was fascinated to learn just how much our non-verbal cues say about us. I discovered that they totally affect the way other people view us, even though they may not know why!

Blake uses real world examples to explain his secret tricks for instantly making you more likable, persuasive and confident. And the best part? You can easily implement them in your next social situation!

Thanks goes out to Andrew Lovick for sharing his Story from Studio with us! You really are a rock star!

In this episode you will discover:

  • That something you may not like about yourself (your voice, physical feature etc) others don’t even notice!
  • How your body language can affect whether someone likes you or not (even if they don’t know why)
  • Why you should pick up the phone and have a conversation with someone prior to giving a presentation
  • Blake’s concept of ‘moving from A to B’ (hint: it’s a simple trick that will have a BIG impact)
  • How to tell if you’ve ‘lost’ someone through their body language – and how to fix it!
  • Why you should practice being assertive in everyday life – and how to do it
  • Blake’s ‘Two Things’ about: approaching strangers
    1. No one really cares about you
    2. There’s nothing wrong with rejection

Challenge of the Week:

Bargain for stuff! As Blake says, it’s a great way to practice being assertive. It doesn’t have to be an expensive item; it could be something simple like getting a $1.50 bottle of water and saying to the store owner: “Look, I come here all the time, I could go to the store across the street, but I like you. How about you give this to me for a dollar? I know these things only cost you, like, 5 cents!”

The outcome doesn’t matter, it’s the practice that counts.

Listen in to hear about my recent bargaining experience!
