Overview

"You'll not only break the ice, you'll melt it away with your new skills." — Larry King

"The lost art of verbal communication may be revitalized by Leil Lowndes." — Harvey McKay, author of “How to Swim with the Sharks Without Being Eaten Alive”

What is that magic quality makes some people instantly loved and respected? Everyone wants to be their friend (or, if single, their lover!) In business, they rise swiftly to the top of the corporate ladder. What is their "Midas touch?"

What it boils down to is a more skillful way of dealing with people.

The author has spent her career teaching people how to communicate for success. In her book Talking the Winner’s Way (Contemporary Books, October 2001) Lowndes offers 92 easy and effective sure-fire success techniques— she takes the reader from first meeting all the way up to sophisticated techniques used by the big winners in life. In this information-packed book you’ll find:

  • 9 ways to make a dynamite first impression
  • 14 ways to master small talk, "big talk," and body language
  • 14 ways to walk and talk like a VIP or celebrity
  • 6 ways to sound like an insider in any crowd
  • 7 ways to establish deep subliminal rapport with anyone
  • 9 ways to feed someone's ego (and know when NOT to!)
  • 11 ways to make your phone a powerful communications tool
  • 15 ways to work a party like a politician works a room
  • 7 ways to talk with tigers and not get eaten alive (This last one is for when you need to WIN.)

In her trademark entertaining and straight-shooting style, Leil gives the techniques catchy names so you'll remember them when you really need them, including: "Rubberneck the Room," "Be a Copyclass," "Come Hither Hands," “Bare Their Hot Button,” “The Great Scorecard in the Sky," and "Play the Tombstone Game,” for big success in your social life, romance, and business.

Talking the Winner’s Way is based on solid research about techniques that work!

    Super Steps

    I recommend reading this book several times. It has so many great tips on how to adjust bad personality traits and to expand your skills in talking and listening. Read it, put it to use, and just see what will happen!!

    A great read!

    Leil Lowndes' writing style is very motivational and well-informed. This book is a real page-turner! Leil uses humor, lots of everyday examples that the reader can relate to, and weaves the latest research findings into her text, without sounding a bit stilted or academic.
