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.

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.

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 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.

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.
