Speak the Language of Power™ Without Losing Your Voice: Participants will learn the elements they need to be able to speak the language of power...without losing their voices. Whether it be formal or informal business settings, they’ll be able to showcase their business, strategic and financial acumen.
Self-Promote with Grace and Authenticity: Conventional wisdom tells women how important it is to self-promote, but it doesn’t tell us what to feature. Participants walk away from this content with tips on and practice in how to self-promote with grace and authenticity in both formal and informal business situations.
Leveraging Internal Strategic Relationships: Every interaction has the potential to lead to a strategic relationship. And while bosses rate women as outperforming men in interpersonal skills, they rate men as outperforming women in using relationships to advance the business. Participants learn how to identify the difference between tactical and strategic relationships, 6 tools for cultivating strong internal strategic relationships and how to use these relationships for business and career success.
