9780071835480: Play the Part: Master Body Signals to Connect and Communicate for Business Success

Learn the secrets of great communicators, professional speakers, and C-level executives

“Gina is a maestro of public speaking! She coached me for my TED talk, and I am forever grateful to her for giving me the technical and emotional training I needed to take the stage.”
―Susan Cain, bestselling author of Quiet

“Gina is an incredible coach who’ll increase your impact when presenting in an executive setting―or any professional interaction. But she can’t be everywhere, so this book is the next best thing! A must-read.”
―Greg Behar, CEO of Nestle Science and Health

Every body tells a story. From the moment an actor steps on stage, an audience collectively feels whether his or her performance is authentic, forced, or over the top. Business professionals are also performers―and the workplace is their stage.

In Play the Part, executive communication consultant Gina Barnett brings the same techniques actors use to bear on all types of presentation and communication situations, from the board room to the conference stage. She reveals how the body affects our communication and thought patterns and how to align these consistently for maximum success. Featuring practical exercises, she shows you how to develop presence and become more intuitive, so you can navigate challenging communication situations with optimal results.

You worked hard to earn your title. Now it’s time to play the part.

From the Back Cover:

“In my field of design and innovation, it’s the human connections that build momentum for great ideas. Gina Barnett teaches us how to bring our full selves into every conversation, from connecting with our friends and colleagues to telling one’s most personal story at TED.”
―David Kelly, founder, chairman, and managing partner of IDEO

“Play the Part is an essential guide for anyone who is interested in elevating their communication style to achieve maximum effectiveness. It teaches how crucial every part of your body is to your communication effectiveness, and all the ways that your intended message can unconsciously be hampered. Play the Part armed me with career-propelling tools that helped me become more self-aware and, more important, bodily aware. I now feel that I am not only heard but seen as authentically and powerfully as I hope to be.”
―Lucinda Martinez, SVP of Multichannel Marketing at HBO

“Gina is the best in the business when it comes to training leaders in “omnipresent communication,” and I’m a master of my newly discovered messaging channel, my body, because of her. Play the Part is a jewel for those of us who dare call ourselves great communicators.”
―James Andrews, founder of True Story Agency

“Bringing her considerable warmth, sense of humor, and passion to the task, Gina teaches us how to unlock our innate ability to connect with other people. Play the Part is a must-read not just for business but for all communication success.”
―Alexander Saint-Amand, president and CEO of Gerson Lehrman Group

“Gina has a supreme knack for distilling the key essence and getting to the heart of the matter!”
―Kareem Yusuf, SVP of Development of Smarter Commerce at IBM

“Gina Barnett is a master teacher of the art of connection. Every page of this book offers valuable lessons gleaned from her rich experience with every kind of senior leader. There are lessons here for us all.”
―Richard Socarides, former White House senior adviser to President William Jefferson Clinton

“Gina taught me how to connect to the power of my truth and convey it through storytelling. When I step onstage to share my message, the intimacy and courage I feel is all because of Gina―her generosity, her knowledge. Play the Part is an invaluable gift for anyone with a message to convey.”
―Geena Rocero, LGBT activist and model
