Product Description

Product Description

Despite the age-old saying, individuals everywhere still have a hard time realizing that it’s not all about them. Robin Dreeke uses his research and years of work in the field of interpersonal relations and behavior to help readers focus on building relationships with others in “It’s Not All About Me: The Top Ten Techniques for Building Quick Rapport with Anyone”.

As the head of the FBI’s Behavioral Analysis Program within the Counterintelligence Division, Dreeke has used the techniques listed in “It’s Not All About Me” with skilled professionals within the FBI as well as with sales professionals, educators and individuals across the country and world. He knows the information provided will apply to business professionals of all sectors, those just entering the workforce and those leading companies.

“It’s Not All About Me” offers readers a look into the human mind, explaining how it really works. From reading body language to massaging egos in order to learn more information, Dreeke provides techniques he’s tested and mastered when it comes to building rapport with others.

In some aspects, Dreeke’s “It’s Not All About Me” is about the individual and his wants, goals, desires and dreams. The 10 techniques covered in this guide will help readers achieve their goals by treating others well and placing communal wants and needs above individual ones. Dreeke believes the short and simple nature of his guide to building rapport makes the points easy to understand and adapt to one’s life.

** Warning, the content of this book is so effective that the reader should think carefully about how it is used. Dreeke does not endorse or condone the malicious use of these skills. **

About the Author

Robin Dreeke is in charge of the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s elite Counterintelligence Behavioral Analysis Program (BAP). Although Robin always had aspired to become a great leader, he realized from his time at the United States Naval Academy and in the United States Marine Corps that leadership was much more than just telling people what to do: a great leader uses interpersonal skills to influence, rather than command, others. As a commander in charge of over 200 recruits and 16 drill instructors at Parris Island, South Carolina, Robin learned the fundamentals of leadership and influence. Upon entering service in the FBI in 1997, Robin was assigned to the FBI’s New York field office where he was tasked to recruit spies and confidential human sources in the agency’s efforts to thwart the effort of our country’s adversaries. Along his journey, Robin was accepted as a field assessor for the BAP and received advanced training and experience in the area of social psychology and the practical application of the science behind relationship development. Robin’s remarkable journey began as a 1992 graduate of the United States Naval Academy and former U. S. Marine Corps Officer. He has studied interpersonal relations for the past 24 years of his government service. Through observations of nonverbal behavior, use of the Personal Discernment Inventory, the Myers Briggs Type Indicator, and his own unique techniques, Robin has built highly effective tools for all aspects and stages of interpersonal communication. For over fifteen years, Robin has applied and taught his tools and techniques for the FBI as a member and Chief of the Counterintelligence Division's elite Behavioral Analysis Program. Robin has combined all these tools and techniques and created a one-of-a-kind formula for success with people. Today, Robin is a recognized expert, author, and gifted lecturer in the art of interpersonal communication. These skills are used every day in leadership, sales, human resources, and all relationships, both business and personal.

5.0 out of 5 stars My Book Rapport :) 1 Jan 2012
By fl1bbl3
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Prior to purchasing this book I had already heard Robin on the SEOrg podcast and saw some YouTube clips of him delivering a seminar; indeed some of the material in the book was briefly covered in both of those. Here though its expanded upon quite considerably, and each of the individual tips is dealt with in some detail. Although some of the tips, taken in isolation, could be seen as somewhat duplicitous and geared towards salesmen (I'm thinking specifically of the artificial time constraint), when taken as an overall body of work its clear that what Robin actually advocates is taking an interest in the other person and being less introspective overall. As such, this isn't really just a book for sales people, marketing, or social engineers, it is applicable to everyone who wants to become a better communicator in general. Its written in a very conversational style and each tip isn't just dropped in its own section, Robin takes time to show how each reinforces the other and can be utilised to gain a positive experience for both parties. An enjoyable read and something that I will continue to refer back to.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic book on communication 17 Sep 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
A very quick read, clearly written with easy-to-follow methods to improve communication. The lessons in the book would help most anyone learn how to make others feel comfortable quickly. It also would, I think, help someone who wondered why strangers might shy away from them or otherwise don't respond to them the way they'd hoped. (Or conversely, why we might shy away from some people but feel instantly comfortable with others.)

I think the thing I liked most about this book is that one key emphasised several times by the author is to be genuine and truthful. Although any communication technique could, theoretically, be used to manipulate others, when the advice in this book is taken in the spirit in which it's delivered, it could quickly help anyone overcome communication and even relationship obstacles with a simple shift in presentation and how we listen to each other.
