About the series

The Wiley ‘Be Your Best’ series features titles on topics that will help people develop the most in-demand soft skills for work and home; perfect for the busy person! Featuring backlist titles from bestselling local authors, the series covers an expansive range of personal development topics.

Author Sam Cawthorn draws on his incredible personal experience and in-depth knowledge of business turnarounds to provide businesses, professionals and individuals with the skills to overcome adversity and achieve outstanding success.
The world of work is rapidly changing, yet many are failing to ready themselves for a working environment that is demanding unprecedented levels of career reinvention. To thrive in this new working world, people need to be ready, willing and able to leap into the unknown.
This book unpacks the key leadership skill that all employees need to develop: influence and the subtle art of buy-in. You will always achieve better results when people go along with your ideas because they want to, not because they have to.
We are in the midst of a technology revolution yet our education system has not prepared us for this rapid change. Author and futurist Steve Sammartino shows readers how to take back control of their futures and unlock the skills they already have that will help them thrive.
A fresh approach to building our strengths and capabilities as communicators, influencers and leaders. The book provides proactive solutions to strengthen our relationships and create engaged and energised workplaces.
When we’re all stuck in a cycle of demands it feels hard to prioritise slowing down. Learn to integrate the skills of slowing down into your life so you can do what you need, when you need it.
When we identify the personal passions that drive us, the by-product is focus, satisfaction, and achievement. But it’s not always easy to find our passions. When you understand the ‘why’ of what you’re doing, the ‘how’ becomes the easy part.
Author Janine Garner flips our understanding of networking: it’s not about the quantity of superficial and meaningless friends and connections; rather it’s about the quality of the critical 12 contacts you need to build a power network.
From the bestselling author of Useful Belief, this must-read business book provides you with simple, readily applied tools of influence to help you achieve greater clarity, influence and success at work.
This is the handbook for being more courageous. Written for busy people on the go, its short, focused chapters provide practical tools and empowering perspectives to help you build your ‘courage muscles’ in your work, relationships and life.
Incorporating the latest findings from neuroscience, Dr Jenny Brockis shows professionals in 12 steps how to boost mastery, efficiency and productivity and gain a competitive edge; as individuals, teams and organisations.
Everyone is busy but working harder to do more isn’t getting us anywhere. Through simple models, robust diagnostics and practical suggestions you’ll identify where you are now and how to implement real change.

Marketing and promotion

Authors will be actively promoting the series to their networks in January 2020 to align with the release of the six new titles.
