One of the principles of agile is to use face to face, high bandwidth communication. Body language is a big part of face to face communication. It can be used to communicate better, to convey confidence, and to make people comfortable This presentation is about the applying the unspoken communication of body language – in the context of agile teams.
This presentation addresses using use body language to enhance your message and how to avoid contradictory body language. Most people know how to read body language to one degree or another and man trainings have been given on how to read body language. This presentation is different – it focuses on how to contort, control, and move your body to make body language work for you and send a better, more powerful message.
