Vanessa Van Edwards is the lead investigator at her human behavior research lab, the Science of People. She designs original research experiments to crack the code of human behavior. As a professional people watcher, Vanessa’s groundbreaking workshops and courses teach individuals how to succeed in business and life by understanding the hidden dynamics of people.
In Vanessa’s book Captivate, she shares shortcuts, systems, and secrets for taking charge of your interactions at work, at home, and in any social situation. These aren’t the people skills you learned in school. This is the first comprehensive, science backed, real life manual on how to captivate anyone—and a completely new approach to building connections.
Captivate provides simple ways to solve people problems such as the following:
• How to work a room: Every party, networking event, and social situation has a predictable map. Discover the sweet spot for making the most connections.
• How to read faces: It’s easier than you think to speed-read facial expressions and use them to predict people’s emotions.
• How to talk to anyone: Every conversation can be memorable—once you learn how certain words generate the pleasure hormone dopamine in listeners.
When you understand the laws of human behavior, your influence, impact, and income will increase significantly. You will also improve your interpersonal intelligence, make a killer first impression, and build rapport quickly and authentically in any situation.
