5 Top Entrepreneurs and Their Signature Body Language Moves

Being a great leader isn’t just about what you say. It’s also about how you say it.

That’s why successful founders are also masters of body language: Whether it’s a positive gesture like giving two thumbs up, or a power pose like standing with your arms crossed, people tend to move in ways that reflect their personality and style. 

Inc. spoke with Carol Kinsey Goman, a body language coach and author of several books on the subject, including The Silent Language of Leaders, to discern the meaning of specific body movements. Goman points out that even the most powerful speech can be compromised by overly “warm” nonverbal cues, like nodding too much or smiling to take the edge off a negative comment. Be careful with these, as they can undermine your credibility.   

Instead, you should look to the positive gestures that many successful entrepreneurs have already adopted.
