The Nonverbal Advantage
IN THIS SUMMARY
Business professionals who fail to hone their nonverbal communication skills are quickly becoming non-competitors in today’s marketplace. New and sophisticated videoconferencing technology requires fluency in body language, as communications are increasingly being viewed instead of read. Law enforcement officers and other professionals receive special training in noticing involuntary gestures and other nonverbal clues which portray discomfort, uncertainty, reticence and other moods. For business professionals, perfecting such skills translate into more successfully negotiated contracts, bluffs called, and deals closed. Carol Kinsey Goman’s The Nonverbal Advantage makes this training easily available to those interested in building their body language reading skills.
