Happy High Status

How to Be Effortlessly Confident

Redefine what confidence looks like at home and at work. Everyone wants to be able to face challenging situations without feeling daunted, intimidated or stressed. But no-one wants to be labelled over-confident, arrogant or smarmy, or to get caught up in their own hype.

So how can you feel authentically confident – without the cringe, and without pretending to be something you’re not? Happy High Status is a new way of thinking about confidence and how you relate to yourself. It’s how actors and comedians enhance their presence on stage and screen. It lends strength and energy to your interactions, big and small, and is a way of projecting status, minimising self-doubt and moving effortlessly through life.

Drawing on research, practical tips and lessons from the worlds of comedy, film, television, politics and sport, Viv Groskop offers a masterclass in how you can access this new form of confidence at any time. All, crucially, with no risk of anyone thinking that you are your own biggest fan.

“Viv always makes me feel more confident. Get the magic now in book form.” — Katy Brand.

“I recommend Viv Groskop to anyone wanting more self-confidence.” — Phillipa Perry.

“Reassuring, inspiring and wise – a practical handbook for anyone held back by self-doubt.” — Julia Samuel.
