No traveler enjoys the feeling of hopping off the plane, making his or her way to baggage claim, and then finding… nothing. So Delta Air Lines passengers will be happy to learn that they can now track their bags in real time using a new feature on the airline’s mobile app.
Delta now places radio frequency identification (RFID) tags on all of its checked bags, and linking those tags to the mobile app allows you to get a map view of your bag’s last scanned location.
Everyone’s selling something — maybe it’s selling a company’s products to skeptical buyers, maybe it’s “selling” our personality to the man or woman we hope to have a relationship with.

Power Cues by Nick Morgan offers some suggestions. The title is a bit of a misnomer, as Morgan isn’t really giving you a handful of gestures or phrases that connote power.

Put it all together and you have a consistent message that helps you get more of what you want.
