It is well documented that working hard isn’t enough to keep your professional star rising: self-promotion is recognized as one of the most important attributes for getting ahead. But learning to share your talents and successes without coming across as smug or rehearsed is a tricky skill. Now Peggy Klaus, top communication and leadership coach, has developed a program that will teach anyone to brag—and get away with it. Filled with practical examples of ways in which people in various work-life stages can promote themselves, Klaus teaches readers to communicate strengths and accomplishments without appearing too opportunistic, eager, egotistical, or self-aggrandizing. Now anyone can communicate with style and substance—in any situation—and walk away shining like the star they are.

Quotes & Awards

  • “This is a book that will change the way you think about the slippery skill of selling yourself.”

    Amazon.com, editorial review

  • “Klaus’ persuasive writing style and authentic tone combined with real-life anecdotes culled from her ten years conducting training seminars show off the transformative effect successful bragging can have on a career (including the author’s own), while deflating any fears readers may have of coming off as phony, arrogant, or obnoxious.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “A snappy lesson in individual marketing and a great primer on negotiating in job interviews and performance reviews.”

    " A great read when about to interview for a job or going in for a performance review at work. It is funny, encouraging, helpful, and practical. I appreciate that she uses real life examples, including herself, and both good examples and bad examples. I think this book could go even beyond the world of work and help people who in general struggle with standing up for themselves or are reformed show-offs. "

    " Very good, solid advice. I read it as an artist who needs (but hates) to shamelessly self-promote my work. It is actually targeted more toward people in the work force. It really made me think about the importance of self-advocacy. Read it if you want to make sure you are not passed over for the things you know you'd be good for. (btw, a VERY quick read) "

    " interesting tips and suggestions on how to get the word out about how great you really are without irritating people. "

    " Great book, especially for women in business. We grow up hearing "no one likes a bragger", but what happens when everyone else is very good at highlighting their success and you are not? The author does a nice job of offering ideas with out going over the top. "
