As a follow up to Melissa’s book yesterday, I decided to read something that is relevant to the workplace. I am really interested in how introverts like me can steadily showcase our skills and talents instead of dumbing them down.
This book does a fantastic job of giving practical steps to improve communication and leadership skills at the workplace.
Genre – Non-Fiction
Book Length – 224 pages (Paperback)
Reading Time – 7 hours
Style – Gerry writes in a way that makes me feel he was deliberate about keeping the reader engaged. In itself, the topic he addresses can be quite boring and almost preachy but Gerry expertly teaches the writer ways to be more comfortable and confident about shining.
At the end of each chapter, Gerry gives tips (aptly called Gerry’s Tip) that give highlight’s of each chapter and practical steps to take.
Favourite Quote – “People change at their own pace and what feels right to them, but there is nothing more motivating than results. When people see they have achieved small successes, they will drive themselves toward bigger successes.”
Recommendation – If you’ve ever had issues like I have with showing off your skills in the work place, giving memorable presentations and leading effective meetings, this book is for you!
Rating – 4.5/5
