What message do you send from the bike, while conducting your class?
If that's that's of interest to you, here are two short videos to help you.
First is communication expert Alexa Fischer. She sets up her video on body language this way...
I was at a networking event recently (actually enjoying it, as I am wont to do), shaking hands, making small talk, when I saw her — arms crossed, head down, avoiding eye contact while she alternated between sipping her drink and scrolling through her phone.
And this made me think two things:
1. My friend, we”™ve all been there. Who among us hasn”™t felt nervous at an event filled with new people?
2. I want so much to come over and say hello! And ask you where you got that great haircut! But your body language is telling me you”™d rather … not.
In today”™s video, we talk about how body language affects how others view us, how our own body language affects how we feel, and how we can read someone”™s body language and use that information to choose our words.
If you missed hearing our past interview with Alexa you can find it here.
To build on the concept of projecting confidence, take a few minutes to watch Johnny G and see how he presents that "outward energy" on the bike.
Watching Johnny has me considering how often I sit up and project openness - rarely now that I think about it.
Do you spend the majority of your class down? Or are you sitting up frequently to reinforce an important point or simply to extend that outward energy to your class?
