BRAG! The Art of Tooting Your Own Horn by Peggy Klaus

"Brag" is no longer a "four letter" word. In today’s competitive business environment, bragging is a necessity—not a choice.

Remaining quiet about your accomplishments, or even worse, downplaying your successes, leads to being undervalued. 

This workshop is based on the strategies in Peggy Klaus’ best selling book, BRAG! The Art of Tooting Your Own Horn Without Blowing It.You will learn simple and effective self-promotion skills to enable you to communicate your ideas, strengths and accomplishments without appearing egotistical or self-aggrandizing. This is your chance to learn how to elegantly and comfortably sell yourself and your companywherever you go—without feeling or sounding like a walking billboard.

In this very interactive workshop, Peggy Klaus will present concepts from her book, and guide participants through exercises designed to help us internalize the information.

Get your horn out, it’s time to toot!

    It was a special morning at Valencia Gardens yesterday with Peggy Klaus bringing her coaches whistle and fiery lessons. It was certainly a day to BRAG about and we are all better for it. Thanks Peggy!

    Peggy is a dynamo of positive energy who got us out of our seats and engaged from the word "go." She made bragging a fun concept, and helped us work through some blocks to arrive at an essential career skill.

    Peggy Klaus delivered a bravura bragging workshop reinforced with her wit and a little red whistle. Peggy showed us how to use our best behaviors unburdened by myths to deliver constructive bragging. She motivated us to take command of the room and ourselves using the Going Over The Top method to find our most productive communication comfort zone. We were animated, creative, and moving forward. Thank you, Peggy.
