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 this exclusive live interview Business Coach, Author and International Speaker Carol Kinsey Goman discusses:

  •  The nonverbal signals people look for in leaders – and the circumstances that make one more effective than the other
  • Body language tips for building collaboration, leading change, negotiation and sales, and working with cross-cultural teams
  • How to read the body language of your team members or clients to know what they really think
  • Ways to make a positive impression in the first seven seconds

Carol will also discuss verbal and nonverbal cues for spotting liars at work, strategies for dealing with them, and ways to reduce deception and build a culture of candor in your team and organization.
