In The Silent Language of Leaders, leadership and communications expert Carol Kinsey Goman explains that in today's fast-paced business environment, where global interactions are increasing, mastering the art of body language is more important than ever. She explains that personal space, physical gestures, posture, facial expressions, and eye contact communicate louder than words and, thus, can be used strategically to help leaders manage, motivate, lead global teams, and communicate clearly in the digital age. Drawing on more than twenty years of experience, and on compelling psychological and neuroscience research, she shows leaders how to adjust their body language for maximum effect and how to:
Use techniques like "mirroring" to build trust and encourage collaboration.
Accurately read the nonverbal signals of your counterparts to increase success in negotiations.
Use body language to project confidence and candor when managing change.
Communicate nonverbally in virtual environments.
Channel your gender's natural body language inclinations for improved leadership results.
Identify which nonverbal signals communicate internationally and which are culture-bound.
Profound changes are shaking up our lives and the kind of leaders the world seeks. As the pace of change continues to accelerate, stay ahead of the curve by mastering the silent language of leadership.

I would recommend this book to junior to seasoned communications professionals and leaders in any organization.
The book is very well written, it applies the information to real world situations and also includes pictures to help you see some of the body language.
In her new book, THE SILENT LANGUAGE OF LEADERS, Carol Kinsey Goman sums this up with this statement, "body language is in the eye of the beholder".
