The Silent Language of Leaders: How Body Language Can Help - or Hurt - How You Lead
Don’t laugh, you read the question correctly. Are your words in sync with your body language? Were you aware that a person’s true strengths and weaknesses can be revealed by their body language?
Carol Kinsey Goman, executive coach and management consultant, shares extensive research in her book, The Silent Language of Leaders – How Body Language Can Help – or Hurt – How You Lead and proves conclusively that nonverbal signals can make or break a leader’s success.
As a leader, you are always “on stage.” Employees watch as you walk around the office, they watch you in the lunch room, they watch the speed of your gait as you enter offices and close doors, and they watch you standing casually near open doors chit-chatting and issuing orders.
Kaira Rouda's debut novel, HERE, HOME, HOPE won a 2011 Indie Excellence Award for fiction
Desperate Housewives meets Kelly Corrigan's The Middle Place in HERE, HOME, HOPE.
Kelly Mills Johnson is a 39-year-old mother and wife stuck in the rut of her middle - American suburban life. A routine relationship with her lawyer husband, two uber-successful businesswomen for best friends to envy and an all-around predictable existence motivate Kelly to reinvent herself.
In an often-times humorous manner, Kelly begins diving into new projects (armed with Post-it notes and a Things to Change list), revisiting old memories and rediscovering passions. Whether she is taking care of the anorexic teenager dumped on her doorstep, making up with an old high school friend or avoiding the boozy advances of her divorced neighbor, Kelly’s insistence on moving her life in a new direction and finding the perfect blend of home and career is inspiring and entertaining.
Career empowerment advocate Deborah Shane’s new book Career Transition - Make the Shift

Not all luxury customers are alike so a one-size-fits-all marketing strategy won't work, says Pam Danziger in her new book, Putting the Luxe Back in Luxury
Stevens, PA May, 2011 -- In Putting the Luxe Back in Luxury: How new consumer values are redefining the way we market luxury, Pam Danziger offers insights into the shopping and spending behavior of top-tier consumers.
"For luxury marketers, there are really only two income segments that really matter: the ultra-affluent segment with incomes of $250,000 and above and the HENRYs, those earning $100,000 to $249,999," Danziger explains. "While the typical ultra-affluent household spends three to four times more than a HENRY, the fact is there are ten HENRY households for every one ultra-affluent.
That makes the HENRY segment extremely important to luxury marketers, yet these are the customers who are holding back and not indulging in luxury like in the pre-recession period. Luxury marketers can't afford to walk away from the HENRY segment. Their challenge is to put the 'luxe' back in their marketing to these hestitant customers."
