Member since: 1998
Who she is: Ziglar motivational speaker and CEO of Sisterpreneur, an Indianapolis-based company that empowers businesswomen with its conferences and workshops. Clemons aims to help corporations increase their bottom lines by honing employees' nonverbal communication.
Closing the deal: Through decades of sales experience in the resort industry, Clemons learned the psychological element of selling. "I go into the mind of the buyer. If you can sell in the buyer's language, you will be successful."
Her high-profile listeners: Hilton Hotels & Resorts, Major League Baseball, Southwest Airlines, and others.
Legal ties: In addition to her corporate clients, Clemons aids lawyers with interviewing techniques for jury selection.
Why body language matters: "When you're speaking to your clients, you're also sending a nonverbal message. If you're not selling, it may be because of your slight movements. For example, put your hands on the table, rather than underneath. Stand with your feet at shoulder width, strong in your idea, rather than with your feet together."
