“You’re a PowerPoint slide. And anything you do is either contributing to your message or distracting from it.”
When most of us think of hand gestures, we might have a few rude ones in mind, but studies tell us that hand gestures are crucial for both the presenter’s recall AND the audience’s accurate perception of the message being delivered. René gives us concrete examples of how to use our body and especially our hands to take our influence to the next level.
But what about the over-expressers? René has you covered too as he outlines the concept of the Influence Zone and how staying inside of it can take you from overbearing to outstanding. Whether you’re born to hand jive or always keeping one hand in your pocket, this episode will help you break out of your shell and into the influence zone. Don’t miss it!
