2017 Session | ENCORE: The Confidence Divide: Closing the Gap to Achieve Career Success

Being passed over for a promotion you knew you were ready for is nothing new. What may be unique is this little culprit: a disparity in confidence. While men are prone to overestimate their abilities, women too often sell themselves short and confidence plays a crucial role in the ability of women to succeed. Confidence expert Grace Killelea has done the research and will share how to turn your job competency into the kind of authentic confidence that gets noticed. Attendees will learn:

  • The Four Rs of Success–relationships, reputation, results, and resilience;
  • How to build circles of influence, leverage and promote your skills and cultivate executive presence; and
  • Strategies to help you bounce back from setbacks.

Speaker: Grace Killelea, CEO, GKC Group and author, The Confidence Effect: Every Woman’s Guide to the Attitude That Attracts Success
