    Do you consistently receive positive feedback about your work but do not get invited to the executive suite?

    Did you recently receive a stellar performance review but were not considered for a raise or promotion? 

    Advancement goes beyond performance and now if the time to take control of your career path!

    Performance alone no longer dictates promotions and opportunities for advancement in the workplace. Leaders are now required to have Executive Presence. Executive Presence is the combination of behaviors and attitudes that enable you to clearly and confidently express your ideas and influence others.
     
    This three-part series breaks down Executive Presence- What it means in our modern workforce and how you can apply lessons from top executives to build your credibility and confidence. This series will focus on the three most impactful areas of Executive Presence: Learning what it takes to be seen as a leader, being intentional about your future and enhancing your communications skills through presentation techniques. 

    Career advancement doesn't happen just because you are incredibly good at your work. You need to arm yourself with more than technical skills and work ethic to be considered the obvious choice for the next opportunity. 

    A three-part series for women in all career stages, Executive Presence, can teach you to be intentional in building your inner CEO by navigating the next steps in your personal career plan.
