Here's to more personal insight,
"It was like any ordinary day at work...until I noticed I could read people's minds."
What can your prospect's office furnishings tell you about his/her willingness to buy? When is a handshake not a handshake, but a sign that your client is feeling uneasy about something? How can you adapt your communication style and body language to make strangers feel 100% more trustful of you?
The answers you seek can only be found in one place - and that's The Platinum Rule.
After 30+ plus years of behavioral research, I discovered that people's personalities really only fall into four major categories. And once you figure out what categories the people in your life fit into, it's possible to understand everything about them - from what motivates them to come to work every day to how they like to receive information.
The Platinum Rule not only tells how to read people based on their personality styles - it teaches you how to adapt to them. How to deliver what they want so you get what you want in return.
Armed with this inside intelligence, you will be able increase your sales, speak with authority, lead with charisma, get more productivity from your troops, and build instant personal chemistry with anyone. Guaranteed.
Over 100,000 readers have already profited from the secrets of The Platinum Rule...will you be next?
