Women's Leadership: Effective Communication & Executive Presence with Amira Pollock
Have great ideas that get lost in the conversation or attributed to someone else? Do you find that people just aren’t hearing you? Women have as many ideas and as much management potential as men, yet they are consistently getting passed over for promotions in favor of their male counterparts. It is vital to be aware of how communication style and presence affect perception of performance and potential in the workplace. This workshop will focus on building the confidence and polish women need in order to be heard, as effective communicators and as future executives.
- Speak effectively without diluting your message
- Demonstrate your leadership potential
- Exude confidence and polish under pressure
