In today's highly competitive business world, being credible is not enough. You have to look credible. Still, for many professionals, credibility feels like a mystery.

Now, by pinpointing 25 specific visual and auditory cues, The Credibility Code unlocks this mystery and shows you exactly how to come across as confident, capable, and qualified in all types of person-to-person interactions.

Acclaimed credibility expert Cara Hale Alter outlines clear, concise "codes of conduct" for posture, gestures, vocal skills, eye contact, and more. And unlike countless other cues, such as gender, age, or physical features, these signals are within your active control. Individually, these behaviors are easily implemented; together, they form a skill set that can transform your career.

As a bonus, each chapter includes a link to an online video of the author demonstrating the "codes of conduct" featured in the previous pages.
