Carol was a therapist in private practice, a nightclub entertainer, and a majorette for the 49er football team -- but not in that order.
Carol’s session will be called The Power of Presence for Women Who Lead and here is what you can expect:
You’re intelligent, confident, and empathetic - but do you have the presence needed to be seen as the talented leader you are? Leadership presence is that elusive quality that sets you up for the next promotion and gives your career that extra boost.
Here is what it’s not. It’s not an attribute that is automatically assigned to you because of your title, potential, expertise, or business results. Instead, leadership presence depends entirely on how other people evaluate you -- and women face unique external and internal challenges when it comes to being perceived as leaders.
While you don’t have total control over people’s perception, you have more control than you think:
• How leadership presence is different for women.
• Why you can’t simply “fake it ’til you make it”
• How to project the five qualities of leadership presence: credibility, confidence, connection, composure, charisma.
• How to avoid the body language traps most women fall into.
• Why visibility is even more important for women.
