Understanding Body Language

Updated May 11, 2018

Being able to read another person’s body language is a good skill to have. When we can accurately understand the messages revealed by a person’s body language, we have additional information regarding what the person may be thinking or feeling. This additional information helps us adjust how we deliver our messages to communicate effectively, as well as to develop strong, collaborative relationships with others. This course will help you make a conscious effort to observe someone’s body language each day for two weeks. Doing this consistently for a two week timeframe will help strengthen your ability to become aware of and assess the body language of the people you interact with. By completing this course, you will strengthen your ability to read other people's body language. This course has been approved for 1 hour of PDU credit from PMI (Project Management Institute).
