The Silent Language of Leaders
Carol Kinsey Goman
Jossey-Bass, 2011

From the Book: Aspiring and seasoned leaders have been trained to excel at communicating verbally. 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, or the amount of eye contact they give in a one-on-one meeting.

AMACOM, 2011
