Inside the Book…

We’ve structured this book to include every detail that is necessary to succeed at Model UN while keeping an eye on the SOCIAL INTELLIGENCE of the strongest leaders in politics as well as business.  Social Intelligence can be learned and it is our goal to make that your specialty. When learning social intelligence, it is best to start practicing immediately, and MUN-E gets you started immediately!! We’ll give you a rundown of all of the chapter of the book because we want you to know what you’re investing in. If you’d like to buy a copy, click on any of the chapters below! Ch. 1  Ch. 2  Ch. 3  Ch. 4  Ch. 5  Ch. 6  Ch. 7  Ch. 8  Ch. 9  Ch. 10  App.  BUY IT! CHAPTER 1: Mantra of MUN The first chapter is a quick description of the logistical goals of Model UN; it is entitled the “Mantra.” Most of you know these details already but for the noobs, aka “the newbies,” the United Nations is an organization built upon an IDEAL (and a “mantra” is a repeated phrase that is to aid in meditation). In reality, the ultimate goals of the United Nations require profound belief and consistent focus upon the ideals of peace, welfare, and stability. No matter how you approach your role as a delegate, those core values must radiate from your presence and oration (even when you act evil). Just remember your mantra, your goal. Then hurry on to the next chapter to start chomping on the real meat of the most powerful MUN delegates. CHAPTER 2: Attitude of Winning This chapter begins your descent into the depths of social intelligence and the core qualities used to build a magnetic and effective character. Charisma, confidence, and their effects on personal interactions are demonstrated in this section. We also point out another crucial piece that ties these character traits into a true, effective leader: the goal-oriented mindset. No matter how ambitious you are, if you have no goals you have no path to success. If you’re going to read further and you are really going to dedicate yourself to becoming an effective leader, you need to practice every day. Simple habits can make the difference. For example, you can get a small journal and start writing some goals for yourself. Start simple. Write a few changes that you hope this book will help you achieve.  CHAPTER 3: Teflon Smooth “Teflon Smooth” is a metaphor for the really slick people that seem to always slip right below the radar. In other words, it refers to the delegates with Superior Social Intelligence. It sounds sneaky (and there’s some truth to that observation) but it more closely resembles a set of traits that make someone “cool.” Yes, there are traits; well-defined traits actually. This chapter defines the basic skills that you need to develop including body language, vocal techniques, and rapport. Your ability to master these three techniques and gauge your audience will catapult your effectiveness as a delegate. I can’t stress this chapter enough. CHAPTER 4: The Cast of Characters Now that we’ve outlined the type of personality that you need to create for yourself, we’re going to show you the types of personalities that you’re going to encounter on your little adventure into the MUNiverse. The compendium included in this chapter provides brief character sketches of various delegates. Use this section...
