Leading Expert on Nonverbal Communications and Best-Selling Author
Joe Navarro Bio
With 13 published books, including the international best seller What Every BODY Is Saying, and 25 years of experience in the FBI as a special agent in the area of counterintelligence and behavioral assessment, Joe Navarro brings a unique and compelling perspective on human behavior and nonverbal communications in business.
Nonverbal communications comprise approximately 60-80% of all interpersonal communication. They can reveal a person's true thoughts, feelings and intentions as well as their concerns. And because people are not always aware they are communicating nonverbally, body language is often more honest than the spoken word. Utilizing the latest research, Joe Navarro demonstrates how to use nonverbals to better understand others, to communicate more effectively and to more positively influence others.
Joe's wit and dynamic presentation style have made him an instant hit with his audiences, including C-suite executives, senior leaders and managers. He is often rated the #1 speaker at conferences and has spoken at the Harvard Business School for the past eight years. Jack Canfield, author of Chicken Soup for the Soul, called Joe "a world-class observer" and David Givens praised him as "a master of reading nonverbals."
George Clooney and Grant Heslov's Smokehouse Pictures production company has acquired the film rights to Joe's latest book, Three Minutes to Doomsday, which recounts how Joe used nonverbal communications to ultimately uncover the most dangerous security breach in U.S. history. The book was published in 2017.
