Nick Morgan – Power Cues


Take control of your communications – before someone else does.

What if someone told you that your behavior was controlled by a powerful, invisible force? Most of us would be skeptical of such a claim – but it’s largely true. Our brains are constantly transmitting and receiving signals of which we are unaware. Studies show that these constant inputs drive the great majority of our decisions about what to do next – and we become conscious of the decisions only after we start acting on them. Many may find that disturbing. But the implications for leadership are profound.

In this provocative yet practical audiobook, renowned speaking coach and communication expert Nick Morgan highlights recent research that shows how humans are programmed to respond to the nonverbal cues of others – subtle gestures, sounds, and signals – that elicit emotion. He then provides a clear, useful framework of seven “power cues” that will be essential for any leader in business, the public sector, or almost any context. You’ll learn crucial skills, from measuring nonverbal signs of confidence to the art and practice of gestures and vocal tones to figuring out what your gut is really telling you. This concise and engaging guide will help leaders and aspiring leaders of all stripes to connect powerfully, communicate more effectively, and command influence.

The author has done a brilliant job in highlighting what many of us do daily subconsciously. By highlighting the meaning and importance of these movements and gestures has assisted me in controlling the more negative traits, and work on the more positive moves. The narration allows you to listen to the book with ease, unlike so many other books on this platform.
Currently listening to the book for a 2nd time, and like every good movie, I’m picking up little pieces that were missed the first time around. I’m sure this will happen when I listen to it for a 3rd time. This is one of those books, just like the 7 Habits, where it should be listened to every 6 months for a refresh and to track one’s own progress of self improvement. 5 stars all round.
