Is it easy for you to deliver bad news? Do you look forward to speaking in public? Do you enjoy networking? Do you thrill to the idea of throwing out original ideas for criticism? If you answered no to any of these questions, this book can help.
What often sets successful people apart is their willingness to do things most of us fear. What's more, we have the false notion that successful people like to do these things, when the truth is that successful people have simply found their own way to do them.
According to Andy Molinsky, an expert on behavior in the business world, there are five key challenges underlying our avoidance tendencies: authenticity, competence, resentment, likability, and morality. This book will help you take the thing you are most afraid of doing and make it a proud part of your personal repertoire.
