HOW DO YOU MAKE IT IN BUSINESS?

STOP LISTENING AND START WATCHING

Your Body at Work is a guide to seeing past the words that fill the hallways, conference rooms, and e-mails of your workplace, and to deciphering the hidden meanings that lie behind them. Through real-life examples from the world of business, and with background from the science of communication, you'll learn to sight-read colleagues and use your own body language to your best advantage. You'll find out:

* How a co-worker's hands, much more than her words, tell you how she felt about your presentation

* Why gestures at a meeting are more memorable than words

* When a shrug of the shoulders can mean the difference between "job well done" and "job could be better"

* How to train a nosy boss to back off--without uttering a single word

* What your shoes and your hair may be saying about your commitment to the job

* Why you'll find more smiley-face stickers in cubicles than in corner offices

David Givens has been a consultant to some of the biggest companies in the United States. With his expertise, he'll help you look past the words so you can really read your workplace.
