On Mar. 25, 2010 in Palo Alto at SAP, the Bay Area Future Salon hosted MIT Professor Sandy Pentland’s to talk about his latest book “Honest Signals: How they shape our world.” Most people are aware of body language but not aware of how nonverbal communication influences our behavior in groups. Pentland thinks some people are better at reading and responding to social signaling than others. People with these social skills tend to network better than others and become leaders in their communities. He intends to understand this phenomenon and how it could improve group dynamics.
