Summary

Brought to you by Penguin.

It's not enough to have great ideas. You also need to know how to communicate them.

What makes someone charismatic? Why do some people captivate a room, while others have trouble managing a small meeting? What makes some ideas spread, while other good ones fall by the wayside?

Cues - the tiny signals we send to others 24/7 through our body language, facial expressions, word choices and vocal inflection - have a massive impact on how we, and our ideas, come across. Our cues can either enhance our message or undermine it.

In this entertaining and accessible guide to the hidden language of cues, Vanessa Van Edwards teaches you how to convey power, trust, leadership, likability and charisma in every interaction. You'll learn:

  • Which vocal cues make you sound more confident.
  • Which body language cues assert, 'I'm a leader, and here's why you should join me'.
  • Which verbal cues to use in pitches, branding and emails to increase trust (and generate excitement about interacting with you).
  • Which visual cues you are sending in your profile pictures, clothing and professional brand.

Whether you're pitching an investment, negotiating a job offer or having a tough conversation with a colleague, Cues can help you improve your relationships, express empathy and create meaningful connections with lasting impact.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

Have you ever wrote an audiobook down

Have you ever listened to a very interesting audiobook and felt like you want to write down every word you listen to. I love audiobooks but I often stick to authors I know. First encountered Vanessa on YouTube and wasn't sure how she can present her work in audio book. I loved the ideas presented, the narration and the stories. It is one of the books that made me feel like I don't want this book to end. warmly recommended for those who believes in the importance of charm in daily communication!

Great content, great delivery

An excellent guide to both reading and being read by, other people the right way. Full of excellent real life examples of celebrities, politicians, and business people and the cues that they can be seen exhibiting at certain points.

Very insightful and enjoyable, well read by the author herself.

Vanessa captivates you with her cues

You know a book is really good when you savour each single chapter, reluctant to finish it. "Cues" is rich of educational science and enlightening aha moments, all topped up by Vanessa's charming reading. 100% a must have.

Insightful

This books gave me insight into the verbal and non verbal subtleties of day to day communication. I’m able to express more information with fewer words. I am also beginning to pick up on social cues which I would have otherwise overlooked. Highly recommended.
