Publisher: Jossey-Bass; 1 edition (2011, Apr 19th).
A guide for using body language to lead more effectivelyAspiring and seasoned leaders have been trained to manage their leadership communication in many important ways. 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. In The Silent Language of Leaders, Goman 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.Draws on compelling psychological and neuroscience research to show leaders how to adjust their body language for maximum effect. moreMore Info | Google Books | Check Availability
