Demonstrative communication deals with the nonverbal /and nonwritten aspect of communication. Demonstrative communication is conveyed by body language, tone of voice, expressions and gestures. We often do not realize how our body is projected to others when we are communicating to one another. Our nerves can get the best of us, our attitude can put off a bad vibe, and we can make others see us as unengaged. Have you ever talked to someone and felt like you were being talked down to because of the way they are saying it with their tone, gestures, and/or body language? Well that is one of many things we are going to address to help prevent you doing it to someone else.
In my opinion, body language is the biggest part of communication. If we are engaging in a conversation, speaking to a person, or speaking to a group if our body is not matching the passion level of what we are speaking about people will become unengaged. Do not over do the body language or make it to where your body language does not match what you are trying to say. The best thing to do is to try and be natural with your stance and movements. People can easily tell when someone is faking their body language because it tends to look like you are rude or over exaggerating. In other words, if you are standing all slouched over you look disengaged and uninterested. Stand tall and proud when speaking it makes a world of difference.
Your tone can be a real audience stopper. If you are talking to a bunch of young children like they are adults your message will not get through because they will be uninterested and vice versa for adults. If you have an attitude tone in your voice your audience will feel disrespected and not want to listen to what you have to say. Once again it is important to be natural but consider your audiences beforehand to make sure you are speaking appropriately to the age of the audience and the manner of the content.
Expressions can be misleading. Smile when you are happy, let it be known if it is something that makes you sad,...
