Poised for Success ARC Giveaway

by Jacqueline Whitmore


I‘m excited to announce that the advanced reading copies (ARCs) of my new book POISED FOR SUCCESS arrived today! Boy, are they beautiful! The book will officially come out on November 8, 2011 but this is your chance to read it before the rest of the world does. If you would like to win an autographed copy, enter your name and a brief comment in the comments section below. One lucky winner will be chosen at random and will be announced here and via Twitter (@etiquetteexpert). Hurry! The giveaway ends at midnight on August 12.

Here’s a summary of the book:
In the past, the business world favored the aggressive “Type A” personality. But in these unsettled times, being courteous and thoughtful has proven to be a more effective way to win clients and customers and influence others. The competitive advantage depends on your ability to use your emotional intelligence and social graces to take your career to the next level.

In POISED FOR SUCCESS, Jacqueline Whitmore states that good business etiquette is important, but she also knows that there is more to becoming invaluable at work than simply mastering good behavior. In order to be poised for success, you must cultivate what Jacqueline calls the four “P” qualities: Presence, Polish, Professionalism, and Passion. These include how to:

• Package yourself for success by refining your personal brand
• Nurture professional relationships with flair
• Master the five ways to make yourself more memorable
• Learn the seven unwritten rules of workplace etiquette

Whitmore, using her 15 years of experience as a protocol and etiquette expert, will arm you with the skills to become more self-aware, more confident and comfortable in your own skin, and better able to communicate with others in a credible, authentic manner.

    It occurred to me while visiting your website for the first time how much our country could use more etiquette, more thought, respect and compassion in dealing with others (especially some of our politicians)……………thank you for making a positive impact in a world that needs training in how to work and play well with others.
