The Serious Business of Small Talk: Becoming Fluent, Comfortable, and Charming
By: Carol A. Fleming, PhD

Small talk has a big impact—learn to master this most important communication skill to feel more at ease at work, parties, and events of all kinds.
Carol Fleming wants to show you that small talk is not as small as you might think. It’s the foundation of every relationship, professional and personal. It’s the sound of people reaching out to each other, searching for similarities, shared interests, goodwill, connections, and friendship. And it’s something that can be learned, even by those requiring the smallest of baby steps.
We engage in small talk every day with people we know—but it feels a lot tougher when we go outside our comfort zone. This guide to graceful social conversation covers both inner and outer aspects—from the right attitude to how to dress, move around, and introduce yourself. Most importantly, Fleming lays out a series of simple, memorable conversational strategies that make it easy to go from “Nice weather we're having” to a genuine, rewarding give-and-take. 
But she won’t tell you what to say. Believe it or not, you already have what you need inside you. She merely provides the keys to unlock it!

Networking for People Who Hate Networking: A Field Guide for Introverts, the Overwhelmed, and the Underconnected
By: Devora Zack

Devora Zack, an avowed introvert and a successful consultant who speaks to thousands of people every year, found that most networking advice books assume that to succeed you have to become an extrovert. Or at least learn how to fake it. Not at all. There is another way. This book shatters stereotypes about people who dislike networking. They're not shy or misanthropic. Rather, they tend to be reflective—they think before they talk. They focus intensely on a few things rather than broadly on a lot of things. And they need time alone to recharge. Because they've been told networking is all about small talk, big numbers and constant contact, they assume it's not for them. But it is! Zack politely examines and then smashes to tiny fragments the "dusty old rules" of standard networking advice. She shows how the very traits that ordinarily make people networking-averse can be harnessed to forge an approach that is just as effective as more traditional approaches, if not better. And she applies it to all kinds of situations, not just formal networking events. After all, as she says, life is just one big networking opportunity? A notion readers can now embrace.

How to Win Friends and Influence People in the Digital Age
By Dale Carnegie

Dale Carnegie’s time-tested advice has carried millions upon millions of readers for more than seventy-five years up the ladder of success in their business and personal lives. Now the first and best book of its kind has been rebooted to tame the complexities of modern times and will teach you how to communicate with diplomacy and tact, capitalize on a solid network, make people like you, project your message widely and clearly, be a more effective leader, increase your ability to get things done, and optimize the power of digital tools.

Dale Carnegie’s commonsense approach to communicating has endured for a century, touching millions and millions of readers. The only diploma that hangs in Warren Buffett’s office is his certificate from Dale Carnegie Training. Lee Iacocca credits Carnegie for giving him the courage to speak in public. Dilbert creator Scott Adams called Carnegie’s teachings “life-changing.” To demonstrate the lasting relevancy of his tools, Dale Carnegie & Associates, Inc., has reimagined his prescriptions and his advice for our difficult digital age. We may communicate today with different tools and with greater speed, but Carnegie’s advice on how to communicate, lead, and work efficiently remains priceless across the ages.
The Power of Developing Dynamic Desire Bruce Garrabrandt
By: Bruce Garrabrandt

You can do anything you dynamically desire ... Even when it seems impossible.

"Aspire not only for what you think you're cabable of achieving, but even more so for what you think you're incapable of achieving!
"Be dedicated to developing dynamic design, empowering yourself to consistently achive even the seeming impossible desires of your mind and heart.
"Do whatever it takes to set yourself up to create the life you yearn for ... while enjoying the challenge and adventure of it all."
Invisible Influence: The Hidden Forces that Shape Behavior
By: Jonah Berger

In Invisible Influence, the New York Times bestselling author of Contagious explores the subtle influences that affect the decisions we make—from what we buy, to the careers we choose, to what we eat.

“Jonah Berger has done it again: written a fascinating book that brims with ideas and tools for how to think about the world.” —Charles Duhigg, author of The Power of Habit

If you’re like most people, you think your individual tastes and opinions drive your choices and behaviors. You wear a certain jacket because you liked how it looked. You picked a particular career because you found it interesting. The notion that our choices are driven by our own personal thoughts and opinions is patently obvious. Right? Wrong.

Without our realizing it, other people’s behavior has a huge influence on everything we do at every moment of our lives, from the mundane to the momentous. Even strangers have an impact on our judgments and decisions: our attitudes toward a welfare policy shift if we’re told it is supported by Democrats versus Republicans (even though the policy is the same). But social influence doesn’t just lead us to do the same things as others. In some cases we imitate others around us. But in other cases we 
avoid particular choices or behaviors because other people are doing them. We stop listening to a band because they go mainstream. We skip buying the minivan because we don’t want to look like a soccer mom.

By understanding how social influence works, we can decide when to resist and when to embrace it—and learn how we can use this knowledge to exercise more control over our own behavior. In 
Invisible Influence, Jonah Berger “is consistently entertaining, applying science to real life in surprising ways and explaining research through narrative. His book fascinates because it opens up the moving parts of a mysterious machine, allowing readers to watch them in action” (Publishers Weekly).
The 9 Dimensions of Conscious Success: It's All About YOU!
By: David E. Nielson

Personal and professional success in today’s crowded, competitive economy is dependent on your discovery of the answer to the following questions:

“What is my best purpose to achieve conscious success?”
“How can I demonstrate high awareness for conscious success?”
“How can I positively differentiate myself from others?”
In his book, 
The Nine Dimensions of Conscious Success, David Nielson addresses the dilemma of how to define your purpose in life to achieve conscious success.  Drawing upon his unique life experiences as a management consultant, executive coach and as an organizational developer at Coors Brewing Company, Nielson outlines a practical process model for you to achieve individual success. He uses real-life stories, humor, and a humble approach that has connected with audiences of all ages worldwide in his consulting practice and in the pages of this breakthrough book.

Nielson builds the foundation of his “Conscious Success Model” on three pillars: Purpose, Self-awareness, and Social Awareness. When combined and mastered, these essential starting blocks will bring you fulfillment on their own, but they can also be used to create your unique brand, style, and strong reputation.  They also support the structure of six key “Differentiators” identified to create Nielson’s nine-dimensional model for achieving success. The six key differentiators include:
  • Authenticity  
  • Work Ethic and Personal Responsibility
  • Listening for Results and Connections
  • Articulation for Impact
  • Humor
  • Gratitude

Each differentiator is a powerful tool (when mastered) to strengthen your brand, your reputation, and to open doors to opportunities that allow you to fulfill your purpose…as consciously planned!

Nine Dimensions of Conscious Success is a must read for young executives, career professionals, entrepreneurs, or anyone committed to a personal and professional development journey.  A critical starting point on that journey is utilizing the interactive Conscious Success Assessment® - an added bonus for readers. This assessment allows you to increase your self-awareness before creating your own Conscious Success Action Plan.

If you are tired of the trial and error approach to your life, read this book and find yourself on the path to conscious success today!

By: Keith Abraham

What could you achieve if you were focused? What would happen in your life if you procrastinated less?

For more than 20 years I have been sharing the power of goal achievement with people. However the gap between Goal Setting to Goal Achievement, does not come down to talent, tools or technique. It’s all about the ability to focus, and this was my first inspiration behind writing Focus. The second reason for writing this book was the sheer number of people I meet who believe they are procrastinators in their life and career. What I have learnt is that procrastination is created when you don’t have a big enough reason WHY to chase something, which means you have nothing to focus on. If I can assist you to focus on what is important, then procrastination is easy to beat!

Is this book right for you? Only if you want to beat procrastination, remove the roadblocks holding you back and have a focus that propels you towards everything you want!

If you need to focus on what’s important, what matters and what makes a difference, then this book is for you! It provides time tested ideas that will help you beat procrastination, remove the roadblocks that are holding you back and help you focus on what propels you towards everything you want, and away from what you don’t want! It will transform your life, your career and your world.
