Smile & Succeed for Teens: Must Know People Skill for Today’s Wired World.
I found this book very helpful in using proper body language. I slouch a lot and now I know it isn’t very respectful.
Just finished reading Smile and Succeed for Teens. As a youth serving professional, I am struck at how simple and direct this book is with wonderful tools for teens. It is written in accordance with the concrete nature of teen brain development. Many know that the adolescent brain is developed except for the pre frontal cortex which is not completely developed until the mid twenties. The prefrontal cortex is where executive cognitive functioning and decision making takes place. Young people need these simple skills for making friends, getting a job, succeeding in school, and working toward their hopes and dreams. This book is a must have! Thank you Kirt Manecke for caring enough about young people to give them another tool for their toolbox on the road to success. This book showcases how easy it is to be above average!
If every retailer read this book - just the page "Never Ask 'Can I Help You?" - they'd quadruple their sales.
I bought this book last week for my special education class and already I see that their attitudes have improved. They are smiling, making eye contact and engaging me in conversation-all things they learned from the book! Smile & Succeed for Teens really makes a positive difference in their lives.
