2016 Session | Strategies to Stand Out, Step Up and Get Noticed

Competition is fierce wherever you are, and whether you like it or not you are part of it. How do you stand out without alienating others? How do you get taken seriously in a male-dominated room? Join this team of leaders to uncover key lessons learned and new insights on how to:

     • Deal with manterrupting, bropriating and talkblocking;
     • Understand when to lead, when to follow and when to move on;
     • Assert your presence using strong verbal skills and body language;
     • Overcome bias and internal fears that prevent you from stepping up; and
     • Ways you can pay it forward.
