Book Launch - Engage

Many highly skilled professionals find that, after a few years in their industry, their career opportunities narrow. It’s not technical skill that’s holding them back, but their inability to understand, influence and connect with people. These days just being highly skilled is not enough. You need to be able to connect, inspire and lead those around you.

If you want to take your career to the next level, this is the book for you. 

Using his proven ENGAGE Model, Executive Coach Duncan Fish will show you how to:

  • be at ease in social encounters
  • make an awesome first impression
  • master the art of small talk and never run out of things to say
  • project authority and confidence with your body language
  • use specificity or abstraction in language purposely to influence
  • develop mutually beneficial relationships
  • be someone who empowers and inspires others

It’s time to stop sitting on the sidelines. It’s time to stop missing out on life’s opportunities. It’s time to Engage.
