  • BOOK REVIEWS
    Publisher's Weekly
    "Best Books"
    The New York Times
    "Currently winning our race for most intriguing book title of 2009 is the oxymoronic “Self-Promotion for Introverts” by Nancy Ancowitz (McGraw Hill). The 'how to' book is filled with tips (rehearse is a favorite). The author’s tone is supportive and she does not argue that introverts should become live wires. But what else would you expect from a book whose subtitle is 'the quiet guide to getting ahead'?"
    The Wall Street Journal
    "…showing how quiet people can turn their innate strengths into an advantage when networking."
    ABC News
    "Best Book Gifts"
    Los Angeles Times
    "Whatever's behind your reluctance to speak out for yourself, this is the first book I've seen with serious research on the topic that leads to a new game plan."
    CIO Insight
    "Must-Read Fall Books for IT Execs"
    Star-Ledger
    "Best New Career Books"
    POSITIVE PSYCHOLOGY NEWS DAILY
    "Offers a solid dose of practical advice—alongside humorous anecdotes.... Ancowitz shows introverts how to take advantage of the unique qualities and strengths they can offer."
    The Independent Consultant
    "There is great value in this book, whether you are promoting your own business or consulting practice, or just want to be sure your talents are recognized within your larger organization."
    Small Business Trends
    "Written by an introvert for introverts."
    Ft. Myers Florida Weekly
    "'Self-Promotion for Introverts' is a primer on doing just that—helping 'quiet sorts' assert themselves by using their inherent tendencies in the most effective ways."
    Women and Leadership Australia
    "Pitched perfectly. Our rating: 10/10."

About this webinar
Self-confidence is extremely important in almost every aspect of our lives, yet even people who are generally confident can buckle when facing powerful or demanding people. The truth is that many who appear self-confident often aren’t really. The difference is that they possess a set of skills they can use when needed.  The good news is that you can come across as more self-assured in these situations too.

In this webinar, you’ll discover techniques you can use to project an aura of confidence that works in any circumstance and especially when you’re in the hot seat with demanding bosses and colleagues.

You signal your level of self-confidence in many ways: your facial expression, your body language, how you speak, and what you say. This program shows you tactics you can use to get grounded and present yourself naturally yet assertively, using both verbal and nonverbal techniques.

What you will learn

  • Tips and tactics for making a strong first impression
  • What to do when you’re feeling intimidated
  • Advice for enhancing your nonverbal signals and reading those of the person in power
  • Ways to get grounded in any situation
  • How to avoid “traps” that make you appear intimidated
  • Advice for handling both planned conversations and “sneak attacks”
  • Steps to prepare for meetings with demanding people

In case you missed this, my recent story, “How to Find Your Inner Cary Grant,” contains tips and insights to help you project more confidence.
