Publisher's Summary

A guide for using body language to lead more effectively

Aspiring 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 & technology research to show leaders how to adjust their body language for maximum effect.
  • Stands out as the only book to address specifically how leaders can use body language to increase their effectiveness
  • Goman, a respected management coach, is widely considered as the expert in body language issues in the workplace

The Silent Language of Leaders will show listeners how to take advantage of the most underused skills in the leadership toolkitnonverbal skillsto improve their credibility and stay ahead of the curve.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your My Library section along with the audio.

    Story
    "Narrator makes this a difficult listen."
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    The content of this book is fine. However, the narrator has an annoying verbal tick. Before many of the words, she makes a slight "emm" sound. It is as though the once had a stutter and has learned the technique of pre-starting words with this noise. It makes for a very choppy understanding as you cannot listen smoothly.


    What could Carol Kinsey Goman have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    The sections on the question and answers with business people from around the world are VERY tedious to listen too. I sense that it would be much better if I could have visualized these sections on a page. Listening to them was tedious.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Vanessa Hart’s performances?

    No. Defintely not. She had the tempo of the reading wrong and an annoying verbal tick. Sometimes, it took my brain a couple of seconds to realize what word she had been saying. For example, if she was saying "Japan" it would be "a Japan" which wouldn't then make sense in the grammatical construction of the sentence. It was so hard to figure out what she was saying that I couldn't process the actual content as the narration went along.


    Who do you think would benefit most from listening to The Silent Language of Leaders?

    business people.


    Any additional comments?

    I wish I could return this book. Definitely not a good read.

    I couldn't deal with the narrator. Her manner of speaking sounds like she's trying to be an aristocrat. It's supremely annoying and takes away from the content.

    No characters


    Would you be willing to try another one of Vanessa Hart’s performances?

    No.


    Could you see The Silent Language of Leaders being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?
