Polish Your Executive & Leadership Presence & Catapult Your Career
Aimee Cohen, Woman Up!
Session description: The truth is that if you want to be a leader, then you need to act like one and be perceived as one at all times and in all ways. Perception is reality and it can make or break your career. Executive presence is a combination of behavior, communication skills, and image…and they all need to convey confidence. When it comes to advancing your career, executive presence accounts for 30% of what it takes to get a promotion. There are many things you can’t control in your workplace and industry, but you can definitely pull on those “big-girl panties” and learn how to polish your executive presence, boost your confidence, and catapult your career. Time to put yourself in the driver’s seat and Woman UP!
Woman UP! is more than professional development…it’s professional empowerment and Aimee Cohen is the “Career Dream-Maker!” With all of the training and education you receive to do your job, you have never had anyone teach you how to create a life-long, fulfilling, and successful career…until now! Time to pull on your “big-girl panties” and manage your career like a boss!
After more than 20 years and a nearly 100% success rate, Aimee shares her secrets, strategies, tips, tools, processes, and practical action steps to catapult your career. Today’s workplace is more competitive than ever, and that’s why Aimee’s message will empower you to Woman UP! and take control.
Session description: Do you like change or do you resist it? Change is the only constant in our lives, yet we tend to ignore it, avoid it or characterize it as bad. In this session, you will learn about the Cycle of Change and how to understand your unique way of dealing with change. We will also explore the complexity of the VUCA – volatility, uncertainty, complexity and ambiguity of general conditions and situations in the world in which we live. You will walk away with tools for transformation in your leadership effectiveness and tools for ways to best deal with change. You might even decide you like change!
