Discover the Undercover Advantage
In a televised social experiment before millions of viewers, police sergeant Derrick Levasseur demonstrated that techniques used by undercover detectives could help people achieve their goals in everyday social situations. The result: he walked away with more than half a million dollars.
In The Undercover Edge, Derrick shares his personal mind-set surrounding human behavior and motivation. Even more than that, he provides easy yet groundbreaking tools acquired while overcoming personal adversity and working more than a decade in law enforcement, showing readers:
- The power of observation and creating a profile
- The effect of using silence to extract and evaluate information
- The benefits of interpreting body language and developing your sixth sense
- The importance of self-awareness and adapting to your environment
- The value of developing a personal ops plan with a defined mission
Derrick's approach allows readers to create a solid foundation in their lives, build confidence personally and professionally, and push themselves to become stronger, more capable leaders.
