Product description

From the Inside Flap

Aspiring and seasoned leaders have been trained to excel at communicating verbally. And yet, all their efforts to communicate effectively can be derailed by even the smallest nonverbal gestures, such as the way they sit in a business meeting, or stand at the podium at a speaking engagement, or the amount of eye contact they give in a one-on-one meeting.

In The Silent Language of Leaders, leadership and communications expert Carol Kinsey Goman explains that in today's fast-paced business environment, where global interactions are increasing, mastering the art of body language is more important than ever. She explains that personal space, physical gestures, posture, facial expressions, and eye contact communicate louder than words and, thus, can be used strategically to help leaders manage, motivate, lead global teams, and communicate clearly in the digital age. Drawing on more than twenty years of experience, and on compelling psychological and neuroscience research, she shows leaders how to adjust their body language for maximum effect and how to:

  • Use techniques like "mirroring" to build trust and encourage collaboration.

  • Accurately read the nonverbal signals of your counterparts to increase success in negotiations.

  • Use body language to project confidence and candor when managing change.

  • Communicate nonverbally in virtual environments.

  • Channel your gender's natural body language inclinations for improved leadership results.

  • Identify which nonverbal signals communicate internationally and which are culture-bound.

Profound changes are shaking up our lives and the kind of leaders the world seeks. As the pace of change continues to accelerate, stay ahead of the curve by mastering the silent language of leadership.
