Leave that deadpan expression to poker players. A good speaker realizes that appropriate facial expressions are an important part of effective communication. In fact, facial expressions are often the key determinant of the meaning behind the message. People watch a speaker's face during a presentation. When you speak, your face - more clearly than any other part of your body - communicates to your audience your attitudes, feelings, and emotions.
Dr. Paul Ekman of the University of California at San Francisco has made a career of studying facial expressions and facial animation. He mapped out a technique for coding facial expressions called the facial action coding system, FACS, based on the role facial muscles play in expressing different emotions. Ekman's research indicates that there are seven emotional expressions shared by everyone: sadness, happiness, anger, interest, fear, contempt, and surprise.
