About admin

Hello curious visitor, I'm Robert Phipps and I train people in Non verbal communication or if you prefer 'Body Language' I also work for the press and media commenting on the body language of Politicians, Celebrities and others that find themselves in the news. I occasionally run open public training courses but not very often as most of my work is in the corporate world training in leadership and management, sales and marketing, PR and advertising. I've been around doing this for quite some time now 12 years, although I've been studying the subject itself for more than 28 years, having been caught out lying immediately by an interviewer, it changed my life. I've set up this site to bring you all the latest information, research, and courses from around the world. Best regards Robert

Body Language Mistakes That Male Leaders Make

Carol Kinsey Goman, Contributor Keynote speaker on body language and leadership.

Leadership  Body Language Mistakes that Male Leaders Make

There are two sets of body language cues that followers look for in their leaders: power/status/authority and warmth/empathy/likeability.

Power and status are non-verbally displayed in height and space. Men are taller and tend to expand into space (an example would be leaning back with hands behind head, elbows wide and legs loosely crossed in a “four” shape — a predominately male posture).

So, before uttering a word, male leaders already have the advantage over their female counterparts in projecting power and authority.

That’s a strength. But, like any strength, when overused or inappropriately used, it can become a liability. Power signals make male executives look like leaders.

Or at least they did in a hierarchical, command and control setting. But when it comes to leading collaborative teams and building high trust work environments, those same behaviors can undermine a leader’s efforts. After all, if you act like “the boss who has all the answers,” why would anyone else need – or dare – to contribute?

Adapted from “The Silent Language of Leaders: How Your ‘Body Language Can help – or – Hurt How You Lead,” here are the five body language mistakes that male leaders often make, and tips on how to avoid them:

1. They keep a “poker face.” A male leader’s ability to hold his emotions in check is viewed as an advantage in business negotiations. But that doesn’t mean that men shouldn’t allow their feelings to show in other professional situations. Tip: Whether you are promoting collaboration, building employee enthusiasm for a new corporate direction, or addressing the negative consequences of a major change, showing emotion is not only a good thing – it is a powerful leadership strategy.

2. They don’t listen. Or more specifically, they don’t look like they are listening. As a leader, the amount of eye contact you give is especially telling if you reserve it only for those whose opinion you agree with. Men are comfortable talking side-by-side, but women prefer face-to-face (eye-to-eye) encounters. In fact, women often cite a lack of eye contact as evidence that their male boss “doesn’t value my input.” Tip: Increasing your eye contact (and, most especially, making sure you are not just looking at some members of your team and ignoring others) will send signals of inclusiveness and warmth.

3. They lack empathy. Well, not exactly. While another person’s emotional pain activates mirror neurons (the “empathy” neurons) in both genders, a second system (the temporal-parietal junction, or TPJ) quickly takes over in the male brain. The TPJ in turn activates their “analyze-and-fix-it” circuits and leads men to immediately search for solutions, rather than understanding that sometimes people just need to be heard. Tip: The next time someone comes to you with an emotional problem, try being an empathetic sounding board rather than an executive problem solver.

Body Language – 10 DVD set – Secrets of Master Communicators (DVD)
Hi Robert, I have started watching the DVD’S, and all I can say is fan-bloody-tastic!, information is very practical and certainly is an education in human interaction at the most fundamental level.I got the sense that I am in the room along side the other participants, which of course is attributed to the position of the camera angle, picture clarity and sound are v.good. well done to your-self and the rest of the production team!” Cheers

Body Language – 10 DVD set – Secrets of Master Communicators (DVD)
WOW! this is without dought a “totaly blow your mind product”. Its well presented and full of info if your in sales, the police, medical, or any area that brings you into close contact with the public you realy will beafit from this 10 DVD set. After watching only the first 2 DVDs I had learned so much, this is something I will go back to again and again thanks Robert for producing it.

Body Language – 10 DVD set – Secrets of Master Communicators (DVD)
The DVD’s are very easy to watch and have something for everyone, individuals or trainers. There are many points that make you think and give you loads to watch for both on yourself and others

Body Language – 10 DVD set – Secrets of Master Communicators (DVD)
Robert makes learning fun! His insight makes him a true expert in the field and his presentation style makes the material so interesting that you hardly realise how much you have absorbed until you go to use it! Great value for such a fantastic product!” –

Body Language – 10 DVD set – Secrets of Master Communicators (DVD)
Dear Robert, I like very much the seminar, I didn’t have enough time to see all of them, but I am enjoying a lot.Sometimes the sound it’s not perfect (low) but I try to understand all. Thank you very much for this seminar.

Body Language – 10 DVD set – Secrets of Master Communicators (DVD)
In my quest for studying bodylanguage I used number of programs. To name few, Kevin Hogan, Allan Pease etc.
Most of the programs teach some basic things and give a false impression that You know it!!!
But when I tried to apply those concepts in real life..it simply did not work.

Body Language – 10 DVD set – Secrets of Master Communicators (DVD)
This program by Robert Phipps is differnt.
It is by far the only program that I know is so much in-depth with lot of details.
I can say it is the best and the most practical program available on market on Bodylanguage. It is really cheap compared to the other programs (don’t forget, it is 10 DVD sets with 3.3 GB of material )
I strongly recommend it to anyone who really want to study the art of Bodylanguage but can not afford to go those expensive c classes and seminars.

Body Language – 10 DVD set – Secrets of Master Communicators (DVD)
Robert Phipps shows you how to get results in real situations with his Body Language training. There is so “body language” information around to put people in boxes just to have cute interpretations on others, leaving out that you are part of the system when you interact with others. I recommend Robert Phipps DVD set as essential for anybody wishing to understand dynamic body language in dynamic situations.

Body Language – 10 DVD set – Secrets of Master Communicators (DVD)
Extremely interesting and informative – everything you could possibly want to know about the non verbal information we continually leak to anyone able to read it! Well worth purchasing.
Body Language – 10 DVD set – Secrets of Master Communicators (DVD)
a well informed presentation of what you need to know and will help you make the most of opportunities in your life that have just passed you by in the past . put to use some of the ideas you see into action and see how different the world seems.
well done Robert.

Body Language – 10 DVD set – Secrets of Master Communicators (DVD)
I had seen robert on tv beforeit was clear then that he was a man that knew his stuff. I then watched this dvd and they dont mess around with fancy looking edits and menu’s its just straight to business, as after all we buy these kind of products for their content, not for the pretty pictures. And robert delivers, disc after disc after disc, i cannot explain how much this dvd set has aided my work as a therapist and mentalist, you can buy all the books in the world it doesnt compare to seeing it in action!! i would say you are getting a real bargain here as the information thats given by Robert is worth 10 times the asking price!

Body Language – 10 DVD set – Secrets of Master Communicators (DVD)
Robert is very very good at what he does. Having been
on one of his courses and found not only that he is a Master
he is a very genuine person who loves his subject.
The DVDs are so easy to learn and will certainly enhance
your knowledge of Body Language.

Body Language – 10 DVD set – Secrets of Master Communicators (DVD)
Thank you Robert for yet another product that got me thinking —and practising !!
Informative and amusing—and if you can get me to smile !!

Body Language – 10 DVD set – Secrets of Master Communicators (DVD)
The problem with people is that they can get good at being deceptive, lying and being incongruent. That’s the reason why I purchased this dvd set. I watched waited and expected to become a jedi of body language over the course of ten or so hours, however that was not the case. I emailed Robert and he asked how things were progressing and explained to me that identifying different behaviour is the key and then researching it by going back over the correct section of the dvd. From using that mindset I have had the weirdest and most wonderful experiences of increasing rapport with people to quickly deciding that people are not genuine and are after something for themselves. But what is spooky is that these experiences happen and it is only as I look back at the interaction I can see what has taken place. When you watch the dvd you watch Robert on the screen and it can be boring at times, your subconscious mind however is also taking in the information and this is how I feel able to use the information contained on this disc. I don’t think about what I’m doing I just act naturally and it creates a powerful message when you directly ask someone why they are lying to you because of something you have observed in their behaviour. So excellent product, it isn’t fancy, but it is 100 times better than reading the other 5 books I have on the subject and there are some class demo’s to help. Don’t try and consciously learn the skills just sit back watch, have fun and take it in. When you need to come back and reference the areas that you feel are important. What you are learning is a skill just like learning other languages but you will find is 90% of the time you know what the body language signals are, you just did not realise it. Oh and everybody does it!

Body Language – 10 DVD set – Secrets of Master Communicators (DVD)
What I wanted to know about Body Language was clearly defined in this 10 DVD set. Straightforward and easily digested – definitely better than reading from a book which can get very confusing. Excellent value for money, and a must for anyone interested in Body Language whether it be for business or pleasure! I give this product 10/10 and am recommending it to everyone.

Body Language – 10 DVD set – Secrets of Master Communicators (DVD)
I found the DVDs a comprehensive and progressive look at non verbal comunication. Well constructed, flowed well, interesting and entertaining. I learned a lot about my own body language as well as that of others. Ideal and comfortable home learning which inspires the fun of practice” – Michael Smythe

Here’s some book reviews taken from the Amazon page, imagine how much you can learn over two days?
“I have just finished reading ‘Body Language, It’s what you don’t say that matters’….
Wow.. what can I say, this is a truely enlightening book!

Over the past few years I have been looking to gain knowledge on the subject of body language and have spent much time reading books related to it but none of which have even come close to this book by Robert Phipps, he certainly knows the subject well and puts his knowledge of it across perfectly….. I just couldnt put it down!! Its amazing to think that in the past two days I have felt more in control….. Yes, I gained ALL that from a book!

You HAVE to read this! :-)” Abergirl

“Forget the ‘also rans’ in this genre, ‘Body Language’is a winner by a mile. Unlike some of the other books written about body language, which can quickly become tedious, Robert Phipps has a writing style that holds your attention from start to finish. The book covers all you need to know on the subject in a clear concise way which I personally couldn’t fault. Excellent stuff” Needlzz

“Really interesting read, it’s impossible to put down once you start. It takes ‘people watching’ to a new level and is also a great tool if you come in to contact with people in your job. There is so much value in being able to know what people are feeling or thinking without them having to say it to you out loud. This book will really change how you look at everything, your life and just as importantly how you look at other people too. Brilliant book, congrats to the author.” – Mark Stewart

“I bought this for my husband for Christmas, and then read it myself. This is a great way to learn about body language, whilst applying it to different scenarios. Very well explained and particularly useful in a sales context. It isn’t long winded, and is an easy read. Most books on body language don’t go as far as to help understand how useful it can be (or not) in home/work life situations.” – Mirandag

“Mobile technology and email have shrunk the size of the world. A lot of business is now conducted at arm’s length and remotely, diminishing our face-to-face communications skills. Whilst it is now technically possible to pull off a big deal with a huge multinational, sitting home alone in our pyjamas, when that deal starts to go off course, genuine face time counts. Understanding body language is the key unlocking a secret code, exposing the thoughts, plans and actions of our fellow human beings. This insight is crucial in business and in all human relationships.

This book addresses these and many other matters on relating to ‘reading’ people and rekindling these basic human skills which have been lost in the technological age. Robert Phipps has written a superb book which should be essential reading for anyone in business or who wants to know what is really going on behind the mask.” – Moose Papoose

“I could not put it down. I can only say that this book will change your whole life and the way you look at your fellow man and woman.
Ideal for all who come into contact with others and want to read them even without hearing what the say.  Enjoy.” – Bear

“A compelling read, I couldn’t put it down! The very first paragraph gets you thinking and that doesn’t stop all the way through this fantastic book! Robert gets you to think about what you do, what you see, what you think… everything.. and in a really friendly, informative way. It’s almost as though he was there in the room with you, having a chat.

This fascinating book is well laid out, with just the right amount of information interspersed with exercises, case histories, stories and great pictures, and the summaries at the end of each chapter bring it all together.

The exercises in the book are a helpful way to really understand the techniques and approaches, and are most interesting in what they show you about yourself and others)

I loved the PIN code especially… it takes ‘people watching’ to another level and helps bring together what you have learned through the book. I doubt I will ever be bored again waiting for train or in a really dull meeting, as there will always be something to look for now.

The ideal book to carry around with you!” – Pinkwaffles
