I did a guest post for https://jobmob.co.il/ that offered very powerful advice that can work for job interviews, AND media interviews AND negotiations AND sales AND … wherever you want to be seen as intelligent, confident and an inspiring leader.  My tips and techniques that I shared over at https://jobmob.co.il/ work no matter the situation….

When hand-wringing isn’t hand-wringing…and other interesting fidget facts. Thursday and Friday, I was giving a training to a corporate group. Several members, I knew from a training last year, including “Marv.” Last year, when I first met Marv, I noticed an interesting quirk he had of wringing his hands. It was in a much larger […]

Make your best impression with the proper handshake. First, be aware that not everyone accepts the handshake as a greeting nor does every culture or group do a handshake the same. Western culture values a firm grip, while many Asian countries, especially China, value a less firm handshake and maintaining the handhold for an extended […]

  What is the creepiest handshake you’ve ever received? Why do I ask? Well, I recently experienced the creepiest of handshakes – and as a body language expert, I’ve studied many handshakes, including each one I give and receive.  The quality of your handshake leaves a lasting impression: positive or negative!

It’s inspiring to see someone succeed in bringing a dream into reality.

Update: My opinion about Sheryl Sandberg’s recent body language faux pas appeared in the Wall St. Journal Online as well as nearly 300 other media outlets. View the Wall Street Journal Online piece here. “Little Girl” Body Language Can Sabotage Women Executive’s Success Time Magazine featured Sheryl Sandberg, author of “Lean In,” with the title “Don’t […]

Who Cares!! It wasn’t like I do it on purpose! Unintentional gestures are also often lovingly called “fidgets.” These little emotional reactions are the result of the body’s desire to be physically comfortable… again “Who cares!”  Well, you should. All can confuse the integrity of your message. An example of a physical comfort gesture is crossing your […]

Avoiding conflict at all costs, costs you big time…. Sharon, I tend to be one of those people who like avoiding conflict at all costs.  For that reason, I have a hard time saying “no” and don’t know how to stand my ground when conflict does happen.  What do I ask/tell myself (early-on) to help […]
