Mastering the Four Qualities That Distinguish Outstanding Professionals
St. Martin’s Press, November 2011
Secrets to mastering the details that will get you ahead at work, from international etiquette expert and author of Business Class, Jacqueline Whitmore.
In the past, the business world favored the aggressive “Type A” personality. Of course, good business etiquette is important, as Jacqueline Whitmore taught readers in Business Class. But, she also knows that there is more to becoming invaluable at work than simply mastering good behavior.
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 teaches readers to cultivate what she calls the four “P” qualities: Polish, Presence, 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
Jacqueline has discovered that when people acquire these skills, they become more self-aware, more confident and comfortable in their own skin, and better able to communicate with others in a credible, authentic manner.
