Mostly a direct quote from the book:

"By Their Feet Shall You Know Them" – Ron Plachno (author)

I do not recall why I did this, but long ago I decided that many people lie or at least exaggerate. And so I went deep into watching body language - especially the feet of others. One of my favorite stories was when my family had a store and a lady walked in one day in order to sell radio advertising. She said that radio was the very best way to advertise. I now ask you, “What is wrong with that picture?” Her words said radio was best. Her feet by walking in the door said that personal contact was best. I believed her feet and said no.

Some possibilities may be even more obvious. For example, you should also be concerned if the person selling you a type of cellular phone, when closing the deal, calls the sale into headquarters using a different brand and type of phone. Or, if a person sells you a car telling you that it is the greatest, and yet drives home afterwards in a very different car. Or a person might complain about how horrible it is for companies to do outsourcing, yet when it comes to their own money, they buy a foreign car since “they want the best deal."

Perhaps those examples are obvious. But there is more to watching body language than just that. There are also facial expressions and body movements that can give someone away.

Book: Strategies I Learned Becoming A VP   Book: Strategies I Learned Becoming A VP

During my career, back when Motorola was a huge thriving company with I heard some 150,000 world wide employees, I went there from perhaps being the lowest paid engineer on staff to becoming a Vice President. And that was not an honorary title only, but a Vice President in charge of Manufacturing or Engineering of both for a large division with perhaps yearly a billion US dollars in sales. How did I do that? Well, I realized I was not born with this knowledge. I learned it from many people along the way, and tried to decide what information I was being told made sense and what information did not make sense. And I learned from some people.. who I thought were great in business. And so what is the point of this book? My goal is simply to pass on business information to others as best as I could, in order to help others who may come after me. Yes, times change, and some may have to modify the strategies here as the world continues to change. But logic does not change. And you might just find this book a good help at a reasonable price.
