This is a wonderful readThanks to John Neffinger and Matthew Kohut, I now have a much greater understanding of how to better influence and connect with all the people I encounter every day. After reading this wonderful book, I found myself standing and sitting straighter, holding my hands differently, and following its many other sure-fire tips for how to project strength and warmth. Compelling People is a fascinating, beguiling read with the potential to change your lifeThis book is required reading at Harvard Business School, and for good reason-it helps their students become more successful, and it can do the same for all of us. There is no denying that how the world sees us can make all the difference in how successful we are, and that is exactly what Compelling People addresses. It teaches us how to use style and approachability to improve others' view of us and, in turn, our professional lives. It teaches us not only how to become more compelling people, but how to become better at compelling people. (Clever title, no? And not incidentally, the book also covers these dynamics in our personal lives-from social media to dating.) . . . This book helps us become more conscious of traits we might have otherwise overlooked or taken for granted-factors surprisingly within our control that can have a huge impact on our worldview, and the world's view of us. - 800ceoread.com
