I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: if you’re into self-development, body language is a low hanging fruit. It is by far the easiest and most impactful thing you can change to catapult you ahead in your career, love, and social life.
Hi, I’m Nick. I’m a body language coach and a neuroscience researcher living in Vancouver. My goal is to make you as powerful and high-status as possible by changing how you move your body.
Earlier I mentioned that body language is a low hanging fruit. Let me explain. All of us want to be confident, attractive, and successful, right? That’s one of the big reasons you’re looking at online courses in the first place. But the amazing thing about good body language is that it kills all three birds with one stone.
Here’s some quick science:
Fact: having good body language helps you close more deals and make more money (Bowden & Ford, 2013)
Fact: having good body language makes you a better romantic prospect (Hall & Xing, 2015)
Fact: having good body language literally makes you happier and increases your confidence (Carney, Cuddy & Yap, 2010; Soussignan, 2002)
Fact: nonverbal signals make up the majority of communication (Mehrabian, 1972)
The jury is out on this one; good body language is essential. That being said, I’m tired of people making body language seem more complicated than it is. Self-proclaimed “gurus” and “pros” try and trick you into thinking you need hours and hours of instruction to even be moderately capable. But that’s not me.
My approach when developing this course was to be as concise and straightforward as possible, and tell people the truth:You can learn everything you need to know about body language in approximately one hour.
60 minutes. One-and-a-half lunch breaks.
When I’m coaching clients, most of them only need one session. Because by the end of it, they know everything they need to know. That’s what I mean by simple. I’ve distilled years of neuroscience, evolutionary psychology, and communications research into a small but effective 1-hour package.
I’m not here to sell you on course after course of increasingly complex and redundant information.
I’m here to give you everything you need to be better than >95% of the rest of the population in one hour. Functional, applicable knowledge you can start using right away.
Now, I don’t know about you..
.. but if I could make more money, become more attractive, and become a more confident person with an hour of simple work, I’d be all over it!
