(Day 2)

I’ve had the pleasure of interviewing Mark. Here is a look back at some of our previous conversations. Check them out…

Mark Bowden On Improving Relationships

In this interview, Mark and I discuss:

  • How our primitive instincts can be maladaptive in the business world
  • Why being indifferent to others holds us back from business success
  • How to move beyond learned behaviour
  • Why being authentic to a goal can be more beneficial than being authentic to a feeling or impulse
  • How emotional intelligence can help you manage disappointment

Listen to my interview with Mark Bowden.

Mark Bowden on Winning Body Language

Mark’s book Winning Body Language is top-notch, combing the latest neuroscience with a wide range of simple and powerful techniques to significantly make a difference in the way you communicate.

And our interview is a blast too. Mark and I talk about:

  • George Bernard Shaw’s observation that, “The single biggest problem in communication is the illusion that it’s taken place.”
  • How managing your body changes the way you communicate
  • How to master “The Yes State”
  • How to dampen the influence of your reptilian brain
