Sari de la Motte is the founder of Forte, a communication consulting firm focusing on non-verbal communication.
Sari hails from Portland, Oregon, and because of her large volume of work with attorneys, is often referred to as the Attorney Whisperer.
Sari explains that there’s more to body language than how it is commonly presented.
According to Sari, there are two basic non-verbal sets, namely:
- Authoritative body language
- Approachable body language
She says that the general rule of thumb is to apply both of the non-verbal sets and that the challenge to clear communication is timing.
So, when you are trying to send information, use the Authoritative body language and use the Approachable Body Language when seeking information. Sari expands on this in the interview.
It is interesting how Sari elaborates on her insights into “non-verbal communication” and how it can be valuable when speaking in front of an audience.
Likewise, she talks about how non-verbal communication/body language starts from the brain- what you’re thinking will get communicated.
So whether you are a Speaker, Business Owner, Hiring Manager or a Job-seeker, this interview with Sari de la Motte is something you will find very interesting!
In spite of her seemingly busy schedule, Sari makes sure to write at least 3 pages in the morning about just really anything that is in her brain. Doing so allows her to meditate at the same time.
