Session II: 11:30 am – 12:30 pm
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.
- Join this session to find the confidence you need to step off the sidelines onto the playing field—and claim the success you deserve.
