Trust Me is a book dedicated to equipping individuals to achieve commercial success through attaining personal excellence. Its material guides the reader through a comprehensive range of paradigms explaining the human makeup and proceeds to enable the reader to grow personally and enhance their ability to connect, communicate, and influence.
With a plethora of corporate scandals currently shaking global confidence in professional integrity and corporate governance, this book's publication is indeed, timely. It addresses character issues, personal integrity, probity, honesty, and above all: trustworthiness. This book will challenge your perceptions, values and behaviours by examining the qualities others seek in those they trust, the reasons why these criteria differ between individuals, and how to discern and match their requirements.
Trust Me provides valuable insights into yourself and others. It reveals how people are wired, showing the reasons for the behavioural styles we encounter, the attitudes we experience, and the learning preferences people adopt. These insights offer invaluable applications in the skills of relationship building and dynamic rapport.
The text presents practical and sustainable opportunities for personal growth in the crucial areas of character development, empathy enhancement, and persuasive competencies. It also offers effective keys for achieving personal and professional emotional maturity.
This material will enhance your ability to make lasting and meaningful connections. It will enable you to establish sound connections where none exist, to repair disconnections where they are failed or damaged, and to achieve excellent connections where the groundwork is already in place. This book is for sales professionals, coaches, mentors, consultants, legal, accounting and economic advisers, and all who appreciate that their success requires that others value them as trustworthy advisers.

The essential guide to professional partnerships
Authors: Bryan Apthorp with Graeme Jack and Tim Brears
Paperback - A5 - 220pp - £14.99 - ISBN 1-85252-453-7 - 2004
Doctor Brian Apthorp, assisted by accountant Graeme Jack, and solicitor Tim Brears, takes a critical look at professional partnerships and the problems associated with setting them up, joining, running and leaving them. The tone is initially light, anecdotal and amusing, but the angst of the many professionals interviewed is apparent.

Solo practitioners, assistants (with or without a partnership), salaried partners and equity partners will all find something of interest.
