When first introduced to a female leader, followers immediately and unconsciously assess her for warmth (empathy, likeability, caring) and authority (power, credibility, status). Women are champions in the warmth and empathy arena, but lose out with power and authority cues – mostly because they fall prey to 10 common body language traps. Find out how to use body language that shows you are both
warm and powerful.
Great salespeople know the importance of great body language. Success in customer service, sales, and negotiations is heavily influenced by nonverbal factors, such as the way your gestures match the other person’s, the level of interest and energy in your voice, the amount of eye contact you use, and how well you can read (and respond to) nonverbal signals you get in return. Find out how to use body language as a valuable tool for gaining rapport, projecting credibility, uncovering deception, and closing the sale.
Body language is the management of time, space, appearance, posture, gesture, touch, facial expression, eye contact, and voice. When your verbal and nonverbal messages shift out of alignment, communication suffers and your impact is weakened. Aligning your body language with your key messages is the secret to increased leadership effectiveness. Find out how to nonverbally project confidence, build trust, inspire others, and convince skeptical audiences.
Leadership Presence is not an attribute automatically assigned to you because of your business results. It isn’t necessarily reflective of your true qualities and potential. Instead, it depends entirely on how others evaluate you. Being perceived as a leader when interacting with customers, peers, or executives, is the essence of leadership presence. Find out how to project confidence, retain your poise under pressure, present ideas decisively, and engage others in ways that are authentic, empathetic and motivational.

Your session was a great way to kick off our sales conference!
Dr. Goman was an absolute wonder to have at our event. Attendees loved her presentation and could be heard talking about it the rest of the day.
Our attendees were positively captivated!
Carol spoke at our Global Executive Women's Summit to an appreciative group. She was funny and relevant on an ideal topic.
The all-time greatest speaker I have ever worked with. I've worked with Carol over a 12-year period--numerous times. She has an incredible ability to connect with the audience. I've seen her present to an audience of CEOs and totally blow them away.
Carol, I want to thank you for making the President's Club Conference such a success. Your remarks were right on target, and your presentation style was perfect for this group of our top salespeople. You were given the highest rating of all the speakers.
Your willingness to spend extra time to learn about the OCC and where we are in the change process made it clear to our managers that you were speaking directly to their particular circumstances.
