Unpack, 2019, Softcover, Book Condition: Good, Unstated
The ability to talk about yourself is a life skill, one that can set you on a path to anything and everything. Using the metaphor of an albino chameleon named Ben - a chameleon unable to use colour to disguise his true self, Kirsty Anne Ferguson walks us through humorous stories and engaging tasks to find out how to say to the world, "this is me." As a global interview coach to top guns and airline pilots, Kirsty has seen how each of our stories differs yet contain elements that connect us. She tells us that your story, just like hers, is unique. Even if you think you have nothing special to offer, she insists you do. You will discover... • That there is no such thing as normal • Why it's never too late to be what you 'might have been' • How to 'tell us a bit about yourself' without feeling like a Muppet • What makes you 'you' and why it matters • Why just 'smashing it out' is often better than trying to get it perfect • That your job and your past do not define you "A refreshing breakthrough in how to uncover the immense power we all have simply by being ourselves."
