BRAG BETTER: Master the Art of Fearless Self-Promotion with Meredith Fineman
Talking about your accomplishments is scary and overwhelming, but it’s vital to getting ahead in work and life. If you do a lot of work that goes unnoticed, you need a mindset shift and strategy for communicating your achievements and skill sets to others.
Meredith Fineman, professional development expert and the Founder of FinePoint, which specializes in personal profile raising and helping leaders find their voice, is here to help you “Brag Better”—to find the words to describe your work and then share and leverage your accomplishments. Fineman has built a thriving career training the “Qualified Quiet”: those who say they prefer to “just put their heads down and do the work,” or who feel like bragging is icky. Rather than asking them to pretend that they’re more qualified or confident than they are, or inserting self-promotion into conversations at inappropriate times, Fineman advocates finding confidence in their opinions, abilities, and background, and then turning up the volume.
