Mark Bowden, Winning Body Language

Mark Bowden, author of Winning Body LanguageYou know the movie Lord of the Rings? Yep, that one. In the final part of the trilogy, the vast Army of Darkness advances on the Silver City intent on doing it some harm. At the head of the army is a particularly ugly looking orc, all pink lumpy flesh and evil sneer.
That, my friends, is Mark Bowden.

Mark’s not only a super accomplished actor, but also an author and absolutely terrific trainer on increasing your influence and impact through the way you communicate. (As a full disclosure, Mark and I run various training programs together.)

His new book Winning Body Language is top-notch, combing the latest neuroscience with a wide range of simple and powerful techniques to significantly make a difference in the way you communicate.

And our interview is a blast too. Mark and I talk about:

  • George Bernard Shaw’s observation that, “The single biggest problem in communication is the illusion that it’s taken place.”
  • How managing your body changes the way you communicate
  • How to master “The Yes State”
  • How to dampen the influence of your reptilian brain
