What if you could get people to listen to you in every situation? And in addition, get them to want to listen? Would that make life easier? Rhetoric is not the art of speaking - it is the art of getting others to listen.This book does not deal with the history of rhetoric - nor is it a book that teaches you how to 'talk nicely' - as many people might think when they hear the word 'rhetoric'. This book will teach you to speak effectively and increase the motivation of your listeners. Teaching you how to be professional and personal, without being private. Elaine shares her own experiences, and suggests with humour and warmth how to tackle difficult situations. Selling 60,000 copies in Sweden, this revised edition boasts completely new examples and rhetorical tricks.

The Impact Book

The best leaders and managers create change. They are able to create a vision, communicate an idea and, in particular, encourage action from others. What is it about these leaders and managers that makes others want to follow, engage and to act?
The term ÍšimpactÍ› describes the effect we have on those around us. Having impact expresses the collective impression left by our visual appearance, our presence, the way we connect with others and the lasting effect we have on people when we have left the room. This book provides 50 short but powerful ways to raise your impact level in business. Taken together, it forms a code to enable you to create response in others and to ensure that every encounter (within your company and outside of it) has the potential to bring something to you, whether that be financially, professionally or personally.

The Financial Wellbeing Book

One of the biggest enemies of our general wellbeing is stress; and one of the biggest causes of stress is concern about money. This book provides a simple and practical guide to planning your daily and long-term finances by understanding your objectives and motivations. In doing so, it offers respite from the anxiety and stress caused by money problems. The author, an experienced financial adviser, argues that the key to financial wellbeing is to “know thyself” in order to allow decisions to be made, and to ensure those decisions are the rights ones for you. This is underpinned by having control of your daily finances, the ability to cope with a financial shock, to be able to have options in life, to have identifiable goals and a clear path to achieve them, and to ensure clarity and security for those we leave behind.
