One wrong move can undercut your message. Believe it or not, our bodies speak louder than our words. Postures, gestures, and expressions convey reams of information—and often not what you’d expect. A smile, for example, is usually considered welcoming. But crook one corner of your mouth higher and you project superiority, subconsciously chasing other people away. Without Saying a Word explains how even the subtlest motions have meaning. Distilling decades of research, the book deciphers these unspoken signals: from facial expressions and fleeting micro expressions to positive and negative body language. Discover which postures and gestures indicate confidence and build rapport—and which reveal disinterest, arrogance, or even aggression. Learn to end off-putting habits, accentuate good ones, and become an authentic and effective communicator. Exhibiting body language that is open, honest, and self-assured increases your social influence and enhances your skill as a negotiator . . . while the ability to read the emotions and intentions of others is equally indispensable. Whether you’re making a presentation, pitching a project, or closing a deal, the right body language can be your best ally.
Without Saying a Word offers a clever, concise, fun, informative, and fashionably insightful take on understanding style, finding your personal style, and gathering all of the building blocks needed to achieve extraordinary style using ordinary know-how. Style Maven Monica Barnett does the heavy lifting so you don’t have to. No more tormenting over the right evening wear or the latest trend. This book is like a firm, fashionable guiding hand leading down the path to your own personal style.
Get Your Expertise in Front of Your Target Market
When your expertise—in the form of an article—is in print or online, readers can save the magazines, tear out the page, bookmark the URL, download a copy, or e-mail a link to a friend. This gives them the ability to react to your message the next week, the next month, or even the next year. Studies have shown that business owners, executives, entrepreneurs, and C-suite level decision makers read their industry publications and association magazines cover-to-cover every month—more often than they read an entire edition of The Wall Street Journal or an entire issue of Entrepreneur. To sell yourself without saying a word you need the third-party credibility of your content in print and online; this book shows you the proven ways to make it happen.
