You CAN Learn to Brag in 7 Easy Steps. New ebook teaches how to promote your accomplishments the right way.
In 7 Steps to Bragging the Right Way, Renee Weisman provides an easy to follow guide to letting other people know about the great work you do without sounding like a braggart.
To be seen as competent, to get ahead, to get a job, or to sell your product, you must publicize your accomplishments. But from an early age you were taught to be humble. So you don’t brag and suffer in silence while someone else takes the credit or you brag the wrong way and turn off your audience. It appears to be a no win situation but it doesn’t have to be this way.
Insightful and packed with examples, 7 Steps to Bragging the Right Way provides a stepwise approach to bragging correctly. The advice is “laboratory-tested” from a scientist, successful female executive and leadership consultant.
Here is an excerpt from the book:
Do any of these sound familiar?
- You jumped through hoops to get a new client or solve a critical technical problem or complete a major project and didn’t get the credit you deserved. Even worse- someone else got the credit.
- You believed you were clearly in line for a promotion or job opportunity but didn’t get it. Even more upsetting, someone you felt was less deserving got the job.
- Your work was presented at a meeting by your boss or other team members. Even more upsetting, when they acknowledged that you had done the work, your senior manager asked, “Who is that?”
- You hesitated on taking a new assignment because you weren’t sure you were ready. Even worse, you passed it up and someone with even less experience took the job.
If any of these sound familiar, this book is for you. You will never get ahead unless people know about the good work you do. You need to communicate your accomplishments better – in short you need to brag. But for most people, brag is a four letter word. How can you let others know how great you are without being a pushy, arrogant show-off? It CAN be done using 7 simple steps. Following these steps will not only enhance your personal career growth but can promote customer relationships and sales by learning how to portray yourself and your company or institution in a more positive way. It’s time for you to learn to brag the right way.
