From the Inside Flap

Your mouth might be saying one thing in meetings, interviews, presentations, and other high-stakes interactions, but what about the rest of you? When you're trying to get a message across, does your body and attitude reflect your enthusiasm or detract from it? If you want your verbal and nonverbal signals working together seamlessly for maximum impact, What Your Body Says gives you the tools to fully master your messages.

Laying out simple methods that are easy to use and remember, this helpful guide offers a proven approach based on the author's years of research and practice. You'll get an array of techniques you can use in a variety of situations, allowing you to communicate with more clarity, inspiration, and influence.

What Your Body Says enables you to:

  • Become aware of the signals you are sending—intentionally and unintentionally—and their effects

  • Understand and use gestures to convey intention, relationships, information, influence, and expectations

  • Understand and use your gestures, eyes, tone of voice, and other nonverbals

  • Combine the different tools into a new, highly effective communication style

True communication goes beyond words, and great communicators use every tool they have to deliver their message. What Your Body Says will get you to the next level in your business and personal communication style. Apply the concepts in this powerful guide, and the results—stronger relationships, influential leadership, and enthusiastic responses—will start coming in loud and clear!

More About the Author

Sharon Sayler, MBA, is a Communications Success Strategist -- she trains, counsels and coaches professionals on how to become stronger, more influential communicators and leaders. She teaches people how to communicate with confidence and clarity by matching their body language (non-verbals) to what your mouth says to produce successful messages.

She doesn't just write about this, she lives it; "I can tell you from firsthand experience that learning what my body is saying changed my life. I was attending a workshop on communication early in my training; and while I knew what I was hearing was powerful, I had no idea why. Now I understand that the speaker's words and body language were sending the same message. He had the complete attention of all fifty members of the audience for more than ninety-minutes before we took a coffee break. He walked up to me and whispered, "If you would think with your mouth closed, you would look more intelligent." I was astounded and hooked; and so began my twelve-year study into what my body says. I had no idea that my mouth had hung open while I listened in amazement. Lacking intelligence was certainly not the message I had intended to send." Find a mirror and let your jaw drop, so your mouth hangs open. Not a very intelligent look is it?

Sharon combines her understanding of communications with a solid business background. She has served as a communication director for several companies and has owned a number of successful businesses. She considers herself a serial entrepreneur and an avid lifelong learner with practical, real-world application of non-verbal communication.

She is an associate of Michael Grinder and Associates, one of the foremost authorities on non-verbal communication, and has contributed to several of Mr. Grinder's books, including Charisma: the Art of Relationships, published in 2004.

What Your Body Says (and how to master the message) is Sharon's third book. She is also the author of Beyond Marketing: Building Relationships and Life's Short. Live Passionately. A sought-after speaker, Sharon offers corporate trainings and seminars. For more information visit www.SharonSayler.com

Format: Hardcover
Sharon has done a great job documenting and describing the value of leveraging body language. An unsaid element that Sharon puts throughout the book is that learning these techniques helps more than just speakers and trainers. She uses a lot of business examples that explain how leaders and managers can implement subtle techniques to change how they connect with their employees and colleagues to receive the message that needs to be received.

"What Your Body Says" is an easy read with diagrams that show you how to do the techniques being described. If you are new to understanding body language she also has a cheat sheet in the back to help you practice.

Another great element that Sharon covers is how to deliver bad news the right way and the subliminal effects of doing it wrong. She also covers challenging situations that may present and how you can change the tone and focus.

Overall this is a great book--for beginners and the experienced alike. Beginners will learn the techniques, while the experienced will gain the insight as to why these techniques work. It is a book you will return to time and time again. Though because of that, you may want to buy two copies so you can share your secrets.

Format: Hardcover
I met Sharon after a webinar I did. After we talked she offered a few hints. She told me that people can "hear" a smile even on the phone and the importance of breathing from your stomach (esp. when you're nervous). She told me how many people think athletes are dumb because they breath through their mouths when they talk, instead of their nose. She told me about BP and how the CEO's body language connected him to the oil spill.

She had my attention.

I have since read Sharon's book and find it so useful. I really like the charts in the back. My husband laughed as I practiced the movements she outlines. The most helpful part is to understand how you can master body language to convey what you need it to. I've been speaking more frequently both in real life and on the phone. I needed the practical information in this book!

I hope she'll create a video training next.

-Janet

Ms Sayler has obviously put much time and effort in to mastering this subject. She has done a great job of pointing out so many of the nuances of nonverbal communication and helping us become more sensitive as to how important nonverbal communication can be in determining how successful we are with both our personal and professional relationships.
What she offers us is a way of being more proactive communicators that will hopefully lead us to being more successful in reaching both our work and social goals.
Reading this nicely written book had underscored the importance of both being present and mindful while communicating with all we come in contact with.

Sharon Sayler hits a home run with her book. Everyone wants to influence others at some time or in some way. However, when your actions and words don't match, people feel that incongruency. For those who are attempting to become more aware and conscious - authentic - Sharon's book will help you communicate authetically with your audience. When used in conjunction with The Earthling's Quick Start Guide: Master Operating Your Unit On Earth (A Short Refresher Course in Applied Spirituality) and Well Done: A Story of Applied Spirituality to remember Who You Really Are, you will be awake and powerfully, authentically influential.

Sharon Sayler has taken communications how-to to a new and exciting level. Her book, "What Your Body Says (and How to Master the Message)," adds frosting to the communication cake as it is written in such a manner that from page one every bite of knowledge is delicious.

Sharon Sayler makes it easy for anyone to learn verbal and non-verbal skills that will make what they say, and how they visually reinforce their words, more effective. Her book is a real "page turner. " The text is easily understood, and gestures learned are applicable at once. One wants to see the next idea as quickly as possible. The message is graphically displayed in a way that reinforces the lessons with simple and clear visual illustrations. I'm already practicing new non-verbal ways to reinforce my spoken thoughts.

I highly recommend this book and am suggesting it as one of the working texts for my "Marketing Mornings" classes and for my Toastmaster friends. I already have three copies and plan to order more.
