Non-Verbal Communication

Underneath your conscious level of awareness you are saying much more.

Non-verbal communication accounts for as much as 93% of your communication with another being. A reported 55% is body language, while 38% is tone of voice. Without training, we have a subtle intuitive awareness of the subtext of what people are saying. Is it truthful? Are they happy about the message they are communicating? With specialist iSwipe training in non verbal communication and body language you can learn to spot more subtle cues. Matt trains practitioners in the art of observation, looking specifically for body movement, facial cues and eye direction to access the unconscious mind.
Verbally we are able to lie, to hide facts, to skimp on the truth, but physically the body does not lie. The body is controlled much more by the unconscious mind which has a greater access to subtle truths, fears, traumas and content that we would rather not consciously access. This is in part how a polygraph (lie detector) works. It reports the difference between the conscious communication (the voice) and the physical body (sweating and heart rate). When the two misalign, this indicates at least part of the story is untrue.

The Eyes Have It

Eye gaze is just one of the cues you can learn to read. The direction of the eyes when accessing or creating information move to certain points. Try it for yourself and ask a friend or family member to think about their favourite food and see where the eyes lead you.

Coaching and Communication

Matt conducted a fascinating experiment on professional coaches to help them understand the critical significance of non-verbal communication.

When coaching, one of the critical requirements is to establish rapport with you client and ensure effective communication. But, if you are only aware of 7% of your communication then how can it be effective? Read Matt’s fascinating dissertation and experiment to understand how even simple tasks like goal setting are dramatically influenced by the past, motivated by avoidance of pain.
