Selling yourself without selling yourself short

descriptionNo matter how qualified you are or how smartly you dress, coming face to face with a potential employer, an important customer or a likely business partner can be a daunting task. Your mission: To sell your counterpart on your winning personality, a new product or fabulous business idea. Your tools: Nothing but words, facial expressions and gestures. The good news is, the challenge of selling yourself can actually be quite enjoyable, provided you have the self-awareness and ability to recognize what sets you and your ideas apart and uniquely qualifies you.
Learn to tap into your personal strengths, talents, abilities and your ground-breaking stories and how to communicate them in a relaxed manner. That's where the five steps of the tried-and-true STORYdynamics® process come into play. They will be introduced with practical exercises from the book 'Selbstmarketing für Schüchterne'. You'll get to know yourself so others can get to know you better.
