Synopsis: In today's wired world, cell phones and other electronics, texting, and email are a reality. This makes having great people skills even more important. Smile & Succeed for Teens is based on my award-winning first book, Smile: Sell More with Amazing Customer Service, winner of 8 awards.
With input from a variety of teens, educators, and parents, I created a customized version of Smile just for teens. Like my first book, the tips and techniques are based on the same proven customer service and sales methods used by successful businesses all over the world. These techniques will help teens make more friends and earn more money. In addition, I've added valuable information on finding and keeping a job, overcoming stress, and the benefits of volunteering. These important life skills for teens ensure they succeed in school, work, and life.
Good social skills for teens are essential for landing a job and succeeding in a career. Getting a job can be very challenging and frightening for teens. My award-winning book Smile & Succeed for Teens helps teens stand out during a job interview and get the job. It will help make a teen a superstar employee--the type companies jump through hoops to have on their team.
Communication skills are among the top skills businesses expect when interviewing and hiring. Employers everywhere are saying that young people lack the people skills critical to be successful at work. Smile & Succeed for Teens provides teens with a quick, easy way to learn and master the people skills critical to their success in school, work, and life.
Do you have a shy teenager? Is your teen uncomfortable talking with adults or others? Smile & Succeed for Teens provides the words and methods for shy teens to feel self-confident and comfortable talking with others. The perfect teen stocking stuffer, graduation gift, and everyday gift.
The author wastes no time with fluff or padding, which in my opinion can cause readers, especially boys, to quickly loose interest, instead he dives right in with The Top Ten People Skills. If your teen decides to employ any techniques from this book, The Top Ten People Skills should be it. In this short chapter teens are taught how to smile, make good eye contact, shake hands firmly, introduce themselves, ask questions, use proper body language, just to name a few. A host of other topics are covered in the subsequent chapters like dealing with customers, applying for jobs, and the importance of volunteer work.
The priceless information covered is presented in an easy straightforward and concise manner, perfect for today's busy teens or reluctant readers. In just 144 pages, the author provides readers with a vast amount of advice that is an asset to their future success. I was so impressed with this book that I have already order additional copies for each of my teenagers and have recommended it to friends and family raising teens.
I highly recommend picking up a copy of Smile and Succeed for Teens. You and your teen will be thankful you did. Available on Amazon.
