#GIRLCODE speaks to little Miss Millennials everywhere - the switched on social media generation who are lacking essential social skills for the real world. Helping develop the confidence needed to become the best version of yourself, this book enables the reader to interact with all sorts of people without the anxiety and awkwardness that seems to prevent us from achieving our personal goals. In this technological age, competition for employment is fierce. In order to stand out from the crowd, you need to be personable. Ironically, the social media phenomenon has led to a rapid decline in people’s social skills. We live in a time where face-to-face contact has been replaced with cyberspace presence and connecting with friends means disconnecting from reality. Now, more than ever, the need to learn how to behave in contemporary social and professional settings in order to be able to thrive within them is critical. If social skills are the building blocks of confidence and character, then the ability to communicate effectively is the VIP ticket to personal success.
Michaela Launerts, has extensive experience in Secondary Education as an English teacher and pastoral coordinator. Passionate about equipping others with the interpersonal skills needed to thrive in the Digital Age, she founded Etiquette & Co., a bespoke consulting service that empowers others to be confident across an array of social and professional situations. #Girlcode is her first book.
