Today I met with Dr. Ronald Riggio, a Social/Personalty Psychologist and researcher at Claremont McKenna College who specializes in research on Leadership and Non-Verbal Behavior. Dr. Riggio explained the ways people understand each other and communicate non-verbally. When one has a greater awareness and cultivates such skills, he or she can gain a great advantage at interacting and dealing with people in almost any social or interpersonal setting. Dr. Riggio is a prolific blogger on topics of psychology, and his writings can be found on the Psychology Today website: (https://www.psychologytoday.com/us/blog/cutting-edge-leadership).
I hope you enjoy the interview! Please be sure to like, review, and share this podcast episode -- it really helps in getting the word out about Mind Tricks Radio. Thank you!
