Book Trailer Art of Performance
Early bird offer The Art of Performance
So why is ordering early so important? Publishers and media outlets pay a lot of attention to preorders as a diagnostic of interest in a book. And that perception can become a self-fulfilling prophecy, because books that seem to be drawing early interest get more attention and resources. So that’s why authors obsess about early orders.
Let’s be clear: Please don’t buy this book because of the gifts. That is crazy. Buy the book because you want to maximize your performance and the performance of those around you! And if I have done my job as a researcher and author properly, the book should be its own reward.
Rather, the deal I’m suggesting is: If you think you’ll buy the book at some point, buy it now because of the gifts. I want to reward you for accelerating your timeline 😉
Buy 1 book before October 1st 2019 and receive 5 gifts:
1. First access to The Art of Performance resources, including the 2-page discussion starter and all visuals in an easy-to-use format.
2. A cool poster by visual artist Axelle. A wall size story board on strategy execution
3. An in-depth interview with the author: find out why I wrote the book and discover my favorite stories in the book
4. A free copy of the Strategy Execution Barometer, the leading strategy execution data resource worldwide with 1400+ companies, 36 countries and 23 sectors + 30 key findings by experts
5. Two training manuals to boost your writing and speaking skills: the training manuals I use during the executive master program to train leaders how to boost their communication skills on paper (Pyramid Principle) and on stage (Facilitation Rainbow).
Small print: please send your receipt to email@example.com. Once your purchase is validated, you will receive an e-mail with all the goodies. Offer is valid for all book purchases (all vendors, all formats) before October 1st 2019.
