A powerful little book about what happens when women find their voice. INCLUDES A NEW BONUS CHAPTER ON 'HOW TO OWN THE ZOOM' 'Full of helpful concepts... I'm finding it very useful.' Philippa Perry 'Plenty of tips and tricks.' Sunday Times __________ Most books about public speaking don't tell you what to do when you open your mouth and nothing comes out. And they don't tell you how to get over the anxiety about performance that most people naturally have. They don't tell you what to do in the moments when you are made, as a woman, to feel small. They don't tell you how to own the room. This book does. From the way Michelle Obama projects 'happy high status', and the power of J.K. Rowling's understated speaking style, to Virginia Woolf's leisurely pacing and Oprah Winfrey's mastery of inner conviction, what is it that our heroines do to make us sit up and listen - really listen - to their every word? And how can you achieve that impact in your own life? Here's how. __________ ***** 'Easy to grasp practical tips... all served up with lightness and generosity.' ***** 'It has made me realize I don't even need to be good, but I can be brave.' ***** 'Brilliant, engaging, honest, vulnerable, often damn funny.'

As a leader, do you “own the room”? Are you an “extraordinary leader”? In Owning the Room, Roger A. Gerard draws on his more than 45 years of leadership experience, both successes and mistakes, to explore these questions and reveal how leadership must be cultivated. Leadership is not for amateurs! It must be learned on the ground, by being a leader, and doing the hard work of leading others. Frankly, it’s the only way. In this book, Gerard serves as your holistic leadership coach and mentor – a voice that has been there, done that, and is still learning many years later. Owning the Room is segmented into three parts – Leadership Action as Intention, Making it Happen, and Deepening the Learning – and focuses on three fundamental dynamics of leadership: 1. Inspiring the mind through knowledge, 2. Inspiring the heart through care, 3. Inspiring purpose through accomplishment and humility along the way. Owning the Room details not only the "how to's" of ideal leadership, but also goes in-depth about what must happen when things go wrong. Effective leaders inspire people to hope, to focus on the possible, and to rise beyond. Take the keys in this book to own your room.

Find your signature voice People are drawn to and influenced by leaders who communicate authentically, connect easily with people, and have immediate impact. So how do you become one of them? How can you learn to “own the room”? This book will help you develop your leadership presence. According to Amy Jen Su and Muriel Maignan Wilkins, leadership presence is the ability to consistently and clearly articulate your value proposition while influencing and connecting with others. They offer a simple and compelling framework, as well as practical advice about how you can develop your own personal presence. No matter where you sit in an organization, you can “own the room” if you are able to do two things well: first, demonstrate your authentic value and distinction, and second, connect to others in a positive way. Leaders who are able to be authentic while connecting with and impacting others have what the authors call a “signature voice”—a means of self-expression that is uniquely and distinctly their own. Once you discover and express your own signature voice, you’ll be ready to take your leadership presence to the next level. Filled with real-life stories and examples, Own the Room demystifies the concept of presence and gives you the tools you need to identify and embrace your unique leadership voice—and have a greater impact on the world around you.

'Empowers, enlightens and entertains with every sentence.' Elizabeth Day We all have difficult moments at work, times when we feel awkward, when our daily micro interactions make us uncomfortable, perhaps when we have to say no or assert ourselves in a way that makes us feel less like ourselves, less 'sisterly'. Part self-help guide, part master class in survival skills for life and work, Lift as You Climb examines what sisterhood looks like these days, asks what you can do to make things better for other women and considers how to do that without disadvantaging yourself. It's the ultimate confidence bible for women who want to plan a career in a fast moving world, but without leaving anyone else behind. And it addresses one of the biggest issues women face in the workplace - how to be ambitious without losing your sense of self. It must be possible, right? Full of tips, takeaways and invaluable insights, this is everything you need to know about making life better for yourself - without making it worse for others. _______________ Praise for How to Own the Room: 'I recommend Viv Groskop's How to Own the Room to anyone wanting more self confidence.

'An invaluable guide to surviving professional life. Cate Sevilla is insightful, inventive and so supportive' Viv Groskop 'Entertaining and practical; moving and funny and, most importantly, a helping hand from someone who's been through it' Emma Gannon, Sunday Times bestselling author 'A timely and provocative book that is at once empathetic about the challenges work presents and empowering on how to overcome them' Bruce Daisley, author of The Joy of Work Bosses are maddening. Colleagues are profoundly irritating. And balancing family and work is daunting. So how do we balance success with sanity? How do we progress without burning out? Whether you're drowning in a toxic working environment, battling burnout, recovering from redundancy, or just struggling to figure out what you actually want from your career, Cate Sevilla is here to help coach you through the shittiness of your work day, and help you shift your relationship with your career. Having worked at giant corporations like Google (where her days consisted of aggressive bosses, complimentary pastries and lots of tears) and scrappy start-ups like The Pool (where she was Editor-in-Chief when it all went pear-shaped), Cate Sevilla has laboured through a lot of stressful and downright ridiculous work situations so that you don't have to. Drawing from lessons learned in her career and interviews with other women, How to Work Without Losing Your Mind is a relatable and reassuring guide to the messy, stressful and sometimes bizarre side of work that everyone experiences but no one talks about. It'll be your tonic after a long, hard working week, where you've ugly cried with your colleagues and are exhausted from endless video calls - and are wondering what the hell to do next.
