Joe Navarro, MA, (FBI ret.)

Joe Navarro served as an FBI agent specializing in counter-intelligence and behavioral assessment for 25 years. There he conducted over 13,000 interviews and honed his skills in reading body language. Since retiring in 2003, he has written 14 books, now translated into 29 different languages, all dealing with human behavior and body language.

Joe blends the work of experts like Dr. Paul Ekman and others with his vast experience in interviewing and observing human interaction. He has written for Psychology Today, The Washington Post, Condé Nast, Politico, as well as the Wall Street Journal and for the last eleven years he has lectured annually at the Harvard Business School.

Navarro spent several years training professional poker players in body language “tells” which could enhance their earnings. Joe currently runs the Body Language Academy, a training program for professionals from sales, management, mental health, forensics, finance, health care, HR and entertainment to enhance their careers using body language skills and techniques.

His book Louder Than Words, was lauded by The Wall Street Journal as “One of the six best business books to read for your career” and his bestselling book, What Every BODY is Saying, remains after a decade the number-one selling body-language book in the world.
