Book Description:

Have you ever felt nervous in new situations? Reluctant to introduce yourself? Afraid to ask questions? We all have. But if you let those worries stop you, you may miss out on real opportunity. Whether you’re changing jobs, joining a group, or moving to a new city, putting yourself out there enriches life and brings rewards.

What to Do When You’re New combines the author’s research with that of leading scientists to explain why we are so uneasy in new situations—and how we can learn to become more confident and successful newcomers. With practice, anyone can get better at being new. This original book opens your eyes to the necessary skills and teaches you how to:

· Overcome fears

· Make great first impressions

· Talk to strangers with ease

· Get up to speed quickly

· Connect with people wherever you go

Blending stories and insights with simple techniques and exercises, this one-of-a-kind guide will get you out of your comfort zone and trying new things in no time.

From the Back Cover:

Success starts with a simple act: doing something new. It can be starting a new job or school, or moving to a new neighborhood. It can be meeting a prospective client or attending a networking event. To achieve anything in life, you have to put yourself out there, meet new people, and try new things. But sometimes we freeze. Awkwardness, worry, and reluctance keep us stuck in our boxes. If we learn to conquer these natural anxieties, we can confidently seize life’s opportunities.

In What to Do When You’re New, Keith Rollag distills the work of leading scientists and his own original research into a groundbreaking formula for success. You’ll learn not only why we feel so uneasy in new situations, but what you can do to become a more comfortable and effective newcomer. With practice, anyone can get better at being new. Strategies, tools, and exercises help you:

Confidently introduce yourself to strangers · Make great first impressions · Consistently remember names. · Quickly get up to speed in any situation · Boldly ask questions · Effortlessly start new relationships · Fearlessly perform new roles and tasks · Live life to its fullest, and find success wherever you go!

“A must-read for anyone looking to make a great first impression and take relationship-building to the next level. Keith Rollag’s insights . . . are a revelation, while his tips for remembering new names are absolutely priceless. Whether you’re starting a new job, moving to a new neighborhood, or simply hoping to create deeper connections with the people around you, you’ll find exactly what you’re looking for in this charming new book.”— Ron Friedman, Ph.D., author of The Best Place to Work: The Art and Science of Creating an Extraordinary Workplace

“Whether in school, relationship, or work, this is the essential guide to overcoming fear, taking action, and finding success in new beginnings.”— Dr. Heidi Grant Halvorson, social psychologist and author of No One Understands You And What To Do About It

“The best book ever written on how to navigate those difficult early days in a new job or organization. Rollag provides one useful tip after another. This well-crafted book is a delight to read.”— Robert Sutton, Stanford Professor and co-author of Scaling Up Excellence
