Publisher's Summary

You will never quite know how many opportunities you have missed by lacking a little self-confidence when you need it most.

Whether it's nailing that job interview, speaking in front of a crowd, or asking that someone on a date. All too often people fall short in these moments as they aren't equipped with the cutting edge confidence to adequately deal with them.

Not anymore.

James Daugherty is an intelligence expert and former CIA spy who specializes in all forms of communication. But there's one thing that underpins everything, confidence. It's what keeps spies alive.

However, he never realized quite how much his intelligence tactics on building general confidence, prepping for specific assignments, or dealing with stressful situations on the fly would help everyday people in civilian life.

Imagine how different your life could be if you were able to operate optimally in every situation.

In this eye-opening and engaging book, Daugherty gives listeners a firsthand look into the trials and tribulations he dealt with in the field as a CIA operative and no-nonsense guide revealing how to:

  • Build general overriding confidence (that lasts)
  • Step-by-step strategies to overcome limiting beliefs
  • Prepping for important "missions" (interviews, meetings, dates) you have prior warning for
  • Positive visualization techniques
  • Body language tips for making a great first impression
  • Breakdown and use of the OODA loop process to efficiently deal with stressful situations
  • Spy tactics to deal with social anxiety on the fly

Meh

This book seemed like a summary of many other books, rather than special insight from a spy.

Not to sure I got what I sighed on for...

Don’t miss insider insights like “lay your clothes out the night before an important meeting the next day.” Where are you going to get advice like that? Book is full of well known tid bits anyone would already know over age 15. Wish there was a gem to share, but I didn’t find it. The writing style is easy listening for all.

Too much overlap between books

Half of the book was a repeat from another of his books. There are some good tidbits, but no real black swans.

Uplifting book..

The idea of this book is that, once completed, your outlook on business will change and your confidence level will rise. The author states that most women are competent or confident, but not both and the end goal is to change that. The book is broken up into the following four sections: Relationships, Reputation, Results and Resilience. All of these “R-words” are values that great leaders, in this case women leaders, should value and strive for. Throughout the book the author addresses each of these topics individually, however, they are all equally important and complement one another.

A must have!

What was one of the most memorable moments of Confidence?

A must have for your library. Well written skilled hands on approach for dealing with people and getting to root cause of why we do what do. Skills which you can apply right away in every day personal and business situations and yes including dealing with those crazy neighbors. I have already seen a difference using these skills in my business, family life and in my bottom line working in sales.

Any additional comments?

Thanks to the author for this wonderful Book!!!
