Have you ever wondered what life would be life if you could see the thoughts of others? Chase Hughes is a leading behavioural expert and best selling author of “The Ellipsis Manual”, which is widely considered to be one of the best behaviour science guides out there. In today’s modern world, body language plays a key role in the process of influencing and persuading others. As Chase Hughes states during the interview: “If you’re in business, you deal with human behavior on a regular basis, so being able to see and really understand what it means is so critical.”

Developing a deeper understanding of human behaviour, can help many of us  become more confident and persuasive communicators. In this episode, Hala Taha and our guest Chase Hughes discuss the process of understanding body language in order to uncover a person’s inner feelings and how we can use this information to achieve greater success in both our lives and careers.
