Speak Powerfully:

5 Strategies to Build Confidence and Earning Power


Do you ever leave a conversation thinking, “Oh, why did I agree to that?” or, “Why didn’t I say what I meant?”  You know, that ultimate face-palm moment.


Have you ever wondered why your co-worker is getting promoted when you’re the better worker? Or maybe you’ve struggled with wanting to assert your influence at work, but you’re concerned with being labeled shrill, or a “B.”


When you look at the evolution of the workplace, it’s not surprising that women may struggle to feel empowered and heard in it. The reality is, the workplace is a decidedly masculine paradigm. Women aren’t the “ideal worker” for which it was first designed. In essence, you’re striving to be successful in a world with serious Mad Men DNA.


Are you ready to change it up? In this workshop we’ll talk about 5 strategies that can help address the communication patterns that trip you up in a workplace you didn’t design.


In this workshop you will learn:

1.       How today’s current workplace evolved and how that can create issues for you

2.       What the 5 Communication Strategies are, and how they show up in your career

3.       Specific action steps you can take immediately target and resolve self-sabotage in your job
