Are you incredible? If you are good at what you do, why don’t you tell people about it?
“We have this bias that we shouldn’t: A) Be proud of ourselves and B) We shouldn’t talk about it. So, it makes me very sad.” ~ Peggy Klaus
Host Mary McCarthy talks to best-selling author, communication and leadership coach Peggy Klaus about the right way to brag about yourself and your business. Klaus is the author of “Brag! The Art of Tooting Your Own Horn Without Blowing It” She says women in particular have the biggest fear of being terrible braggers.
In this week’s podcast, you’ll learn the behaviors of a bad bragger and how to avoid them, plus the three methods that work without sounding obnoxious.
Mary McCarthy: “Then it’s not so much about bragging, it’s about sharing what you’ve done for somebody else.”
Peggy Klaus: “It’s a great way to brag about yourself in a truly lovely framework.”
