Project Energy with Gestures

Posted by Bill Rosenthal on Wed, Feb 06, 2013 @ 10:00 AM
It makes sense that gestures make our communication more memorable and engaging. What makes a "good" gesture?
  • Gestures should go "inside- out". By moving your gestures away from your body, rather than toward it, you make your gestures appear bigger and more purposeful
  • Gestures should be above the waist. Your audience wants to see what you’re doing
  • Use a whole hand, rather than a single finger to point- open hands are considered less aggressive than an accusing finger
  • Gestures don’t have to convey exactly the subject you’re talking about. This is conversation, not interpretive dance
