PROGRAM DESCRIPTION: Aim High: Empowering Women in Leadership–Raise your level of play
Why aim high? Because when we expect more, we get more. Using real-world examples and interactive exercises, Cara will examine the skill set necessary for women to move more successfully into the executive suite. We’ll discuss the power of the “subtextual” conversation—body language, vocal patterns, and mannerisms that can raise or lower one’s status in the workplace. We’ll explore female- and male-identified communication rituals, and how to confront counterproductive culture clashes caused by differences in style and language. Better understanding these dynamics, and being more aware of our own behavioral patterns, can significantly increase collaboration, respect, and ultimately, productivity.
In the seminar DISCOVER HOW TO
- Cultivate leadership presence
- Develop a powerful speaking voice
- Strike a balance between authority and approachability
- Avoid unintentional behaviors that may lower your status
