Summary "This book gives you the tools you need to navigate through school, work and personal relationships with confidence and eloquence. Learn how to use personality tests to categorize yourself and use that information to build a communication strategy for yourself. Navigate group communications and learn how to differentiate between taking the spotlight for yourself and letting someone else shine. On the flip side, develop skills for gracefully bowing out of conversations you are not enjoying or that have simply come to an end. Finally, smoothly talk to potential partners on the dating scene with confidence and finesse to let them see the true you."--Back cover.
