Tuition and Materials: $2,995.00 (excludes lodging and meals)

Rapport is one of the most important features or characteristics of unconscious human interaction, and when you have it, there’s an immediate boost in your confidence level. It is commonality of perspective, being in “sync,” being on the same wavelength as the person you are talking to. As a matter of fact, the word “rapport” comes from the French word for “relationship.”

As business professionals, it is vital that we establish trust with the people we work with and for, and we do that by creating a relationship through using the New Body Language. Rapport and confidence building is the foundation of the Body Language Institute’s certification training programs and our BLI-101. You’ll immediately begin to make people feel that you are the only one that they can trust and that “gets them.” As a result of being able to communicate more effectively and powerfully, you’ll get a massive boost in your confidence level from the boardroom to the barroom!

Also, during this fast-paced program, you’ll be introduced to the latest research on the brain, tone and pitch of voice, and body language. You’ll discover personal development trends and you’ll examine body language in the world through history, research, case studies, and video. We also put your new fine-tuned reading people skills to the test through numerous practical exercises, meditation, and improvisation.

This course defies the myths about the “Old Body Language” and how trying to understand gestures and moves can have dramatic consequences on your communication with others. One gesture does not mean one thing; however, people perceive you based on this Old Body Language. Understanding the basics behind the New Body Language allows students to assess their interlocutor’s “normal” behavior and see how they deviate from it. Learning how to ask powerful questions will significantly help students get to the truth and ultimately to what they want. Such skills will help students working in various fields from sales and marketing to human resources, law enforcement, entrepreneurs and business executives in better evaluating their customers, managers or employees.
