Only 7 percent of communication is verbal and 38 percent is vocal (pitch, speed, volume, tone of voice). The largest chunk then, 55 percent, is visual (body language, eye contact). People form 90 percent of their opinion about you within the first 90 seconds of meeting you. Understanding body language is a skill that can enhance your life. This understanding can be a plus in the workplace. You can know what an employee or co-worker thinks and feels by examining their subconscious body language. And, like the world's best communicators, you can have strong body language that reflects confidence, competence, and charisma.

This groundbreaking new book will make you an expert on body language. You will have the ability to read people s minds. Would you like to know if a co-worker is interested or attracted to you, when an employee or co-worker is lying or telling the truth, how to make instant friends, and persuade and influence others?

This book contains proven techniques that will make people, including employers and co-workers, like you and trust you. You can use your body language to your advantage by transmitting only the messages you want people to receive. This specialized book will demonstrate step by step how to use body language to your benefit in the workplace and in everyday situations.

Ever wish you could read someone¿s mind? Author Harmony Stalter says you can practically do that if you know what to look for. In her new book, ¿Employee Body Language Revealed: How to Predict Behavior in the Workplace by Reading and Understanding Body Language¿, she discusses what subconscious behaviors reveal about a person¿s demeanor. You¿ll never look at another person the same way again!¿Employee Body Language Revealed¿ is a fascinating exploration of human emotion and the corresponding body language that goes along with it. Stalter presents an extremely well researched book on the various aspects of reading another person, explains `open¿ and `closed¿ stances, and why each is displayed subconsciously. Further, she combines several singular behaviors into group and explains that no one behavior should be used to determine a person¿s mindframe; certain mannerisms can mean totally different things depending on the context. Stalter teaches you how to `read¿ others while also learning to alter your own body language. Why look hesitant and unsure when you can exude confidence, relaxation, and happiness with a few minor behavior modifications? Clear and articulate, her information is organized for easy comprehension and quick reference. ¿Employee Body Language Revealed¿ is the perfect read for managers and supervisors but learning to interpret non-verbal communication is a skill that anyone can benefit from. There are very few books that I consider `recommended for anyone¿ but this is definitely one that fits into that category. In the wake of such tragedies as the recent Tucson, Arizona shooting and the myriad of violent school and workplace incidents, it¿s imperative that we all take better notice of those around us in an effort to minimize or avoid these types of manmade disasters. If more people could aptly read body language, could a potential event be averted? There¿s always that possibility¿ and books such as this can open these doors. ¿Employee Body Language Revealed: How to Predict Behavior in the Workplace by Reading and Understanding Body Language¿ is a must read! Learn and immediately apply your new-found knowledge on those around you; it¿s not only intriguing but it will help you relate to others on a completely different interpersonal level. Eye-opening and unbelievably amazing!--Vicki Landes, author of ¿Europe for the Senses ¿ A Photographic Journal¿

Body Language is an aspect of our culture that is one of the most difficult to understand. Well, no more, because this new book by Harmony Stalter will answer all your questions. Once you get past the slow pace, the book contains a wealth of information that you wouldn’t come across in your so-called ‘body language experts’. If you’ve ever thought about how to understand eye movements and eye contact, whether a person is lying to you, and what it means when someone has their legs crossed, all the answers are in here. There are different sections in the book, ranging from decoding messages from the eyes, how to analyze arm and leg movements, and how to deal with different scenarios in the workplace. Although the information is presented in a dated format, and some information might not even be fully up-to-date (i.e. in the understanding the cultural and socioeconomical differences, many examples are given that may not be used in the workplace today), it’s all incredibly in-depth and every possible body movement that a person can make is analyzed and given possible meaning.

This book provides a lot of insights not just about how to decode body language in the workplace but on how to improve your communication style through nonverbal cues. It perceptively explains nonverbal communication from head to toe; some are accompanied with photos to aid in demonstration. It tackles general and relatable situations at work where advice is provided on how to deal with them professionally, assertively and gracefully through the use of nonverbal communication, whether you are the one giving or receiving a message. It also covers cultural and socioeconomic differences. This is a worthwhile read for those who want to be more self-aware in how they present themselves in the workplace.

Don’t be deceived by the somewhat dated style of this book cover, it contains a wealth of good advice. Stalter relates how correctly perceiving body language can give you hints to the dynamics of your office and business dealings. By building on the Consistency Openness Reaction Expression (CORE) method of interpreting body language, you can tell if someone is bored, interested, restless or engaged. The book covers all aspects of body language in a comprehensive way by addressing eye movement, arm positions and posture and possible workplace scenarios. Each chapter concludes it’s basic points in a bullet point format under the question “Did you catch that?” What was a disappointing about this book was the quality of the graphics and cover. While the information was quite good, it wasn’t presented in a way that was up to date. However, I did enjoy the segment about some of the mannerisms in different countries. For instance, in Japan you offer your business card to someone using both hands. In the middle east, the right hand is used for all transactions because the left hand is considered unclean. Overall, Stalter shares a significant amount of helpful information with photos and charts to help illustrate the point.
