I live very close to Babson College, the school where I earned my MBA. The close proximity gives me a chance to participate in certain campus activities. Although I don't go very often, I especially like to volunteer for their Coaching for Leadership and Teamwork Program (CLTP). This program gives undergraduate students an opportunity to get feedback from professionals who observe them as they discuss case studies in a small group and give a 1 minute "job talk" (where they share a personal elevator speech explaining why you should hire them). I enjoy giving feedback to the students, but also enjoy hearing the feedback that other mentors provide. Being a technology geek, I tend to focus on the substance and the content, such as what ideas they contributed and whether they helped bring the group to concensus. The last time I participated (about a month ago), several of the mentors working with me seemed to give most of their feedback about body language, along the lines of "I like how she leaned in when others were speaking", or, "he didn't make enough eye contact with his team members, but he smiled a few times". So sorry for the long introduction, but this experience raised my awareness of the importance of body language, and especially the impact of body language as a part of patient care.
