Body Language for Leaders and Managers

Research shows that when your verbal and nonverbal signals are out of alignment, people are forced to choose between what they hear and what they see. And subconsciously, they’ll believe your body language. In this course, workplace body-language expert Carol Kinsey Goman, PhD, explains how to use body language to your advantage as a leader or manager.

Carol details how body language is perceived—and often misread—and shares the nonverbal signals you need to know to make a positive first impression. She also shares tips for projecting leadership presence, including how to use cues to signal warmth, power, and confidence; connect with audiences during formal presentations; and keep your team engaged in virtual meetings. Plus, learn how to read body language, as well as recognize cultural and regional variations in nonverbal cues.
