About this course

This course will demonstrate how people consciously and unconsciously signal their attitudes, desires and feelings through their body language.  


Underpinned by scientific studies, this interesting and entertaining online course will teach learners how to ‘read people’, and show them how to encode their own body language to their advantage.  


The course will look at the influence body language has on perception and communication. Covering first impressions, gestures, micro expressions, gravity-defying behaviour, intention signals, mirroring and matching, barriers, pacifiers and adaptors, the course will show how people leak their true feelings. 


The course will feature illustrations, demonstrations, discussions and video. 

Myths will have been debunked as learners come to understand the difficulties of reading body language whilst understanding how to spot signs of comfort and discomfort.  


The course will provide an understanding of how people unconsciously signal their ‘hidden’ true feelings. Learners will also be empowered with skills to improve their own body language. 


Suggested Reading for the course: 

  • ‘What Every Body is Saying’ by Joe Navarro 
  • ‘Peoplewatching’ by Desmond Morris
