Be On Your Best Business Behavior

Even in today’s more casual workplace, it is imperative that we still “mind our manners.” Are there any rules on cell phone use for business? Now that we have e-mail, is a hand-written thank-you note necessary or even expected? How do you begin a conversation at a business cocktail party? Who sits where at a business dinner? What do the items on your desk tell others about you? What do you wear to a trade show? Do any of these issues matter today? In our fast-paced business world, they matter even more than in the past. We don’t have the luxury of time to get to know each potential contact we meet on a more personal level. We do judge others by first appearances. Colleen Rickenbacher helps you navigate the tricky and not-always clear rules for a professional in this easy-to-read book of etiquette on every facet of business: travel, dress, communication, tipping, entertaining, dining, networking, and organizing.

Becoming a Category of One: How Extraordinary Companies Transcend Commodity and Defy Comparison

CLEARANCE! Over 60% off!

In this no-nonsense guide to beating the competition, Calloway, a branding and competitive positioning consultant with clients like BMW and IBM, offers hope to companies confronting a constantly changing and increasingly competitive marketplace. Success, he says, lies in distinguishing yourself from others and forging emotional connections with customers. Before you do anything else, Calloway says, you must answer the question, "Who are you?" unambiguously and with fervor. If your response is vague and uninspiring, Calloway predicts failure, since a lame answer signals lack of vision, focus and commitment, elements he considers essential just to be in the running. An advocate of corporate language that reinforces company identity and motivates employees, Calloway shuns empty slogans and fashionable buzzwords. He snappily makes his point by asking what would have happened if Martin Luther King Jr. had proclaimed, "I Have a Strategic Plan" instead of "I Have a Dream." In no uncertain terms, he asserts companies must pay close attention to each customer and focus marketing on individuals, not abstract demographics. Anyone spacing out while Calloway exhorts innovation and hard work to connect with the customer base in ways that Starbucks, Southwest Airlines and others have will hop to when he has a hypothetical customer ask, "Why should I do business with you?" A company without a compelling answer, Calloway believes, will see the customer go elsewhere. But Calloway emphasizes triumph is possible with disciplined application and provides case studies, interviews and anecdotes illustrating successful approaches for earning customer loyalty and for setting businesses apart in their fields.

Boring to Bravo: Proven Presentation Techniques to Engage, Involve and Inspire Your Audience to Action

This book shows experienced presenters how to transform boring monologues into scintillating dialogues by employing simple yet powerful presentation techniques. It features 90-plus practical techniques for engaging and interacting with an audience. Drawing from her extensive experience as a nationally recognised speaker, the author gives readers tips that apply to any presenter. Readers will be amazed at their ability to attract, involve, and inspire by incorporating just a few of the author's suggestions. It offers a proven methodology for upgrading any presentation. By taking a collaborative approach to the communication process, the author shows the reader how to care, connect, and converse with the members of any audience. Incoming NSA president with strong promotional platform: as the incoming president of the National Speakers Association, the author will promote the book on a nation-wide tour. An experienced team facilitator and military veteran, the author has a large platform of clients, including the Coast Guard, NASA, and the IRS.


''To say that this book is packed with powerful ideas is an understatement. Whether you re a neophyte or professional communicator, Boring to Bravo will help you get better. I highly recommend it.'' --Mark Sanborn, President, Sanborn & Associates, Inc., Author, The Fred Factor, You Don't Need a Title to be a Leader, and The Encore Effect

''The author's qualifications are important for a book on public speaking (where authorial experience in practicing what is being preached is crucial). Arnold's background as a facilitator and speaker is extensive, capped by her new role as the incoming president of the National Speakers Association. Her focus is on presentations in the workplace, but the fluidly presented and dynamically toned pages soon make it obvious that her techniques and methods can be used by all who are required to give presentations, whether it be in their public or private lives. Her ideas are underscored by the basic premise that a dull, sleep-inducing program is intolerable, not to say detrimental, to the effectiveness of the presentation. How to engage your audience is the key to speaker success, and the author presents a series of increasingly sophisticated techniques to involve the audience, from employing the right tone of voice to breaking the audience out into smaller discussion groups. Hers are not pat responses to the issue of good programming but are well-thought-out, robustly tested, and greatly practical techniques.'' --Brad Hooper, Booklist magazine
