Take No BS: Tame Critics, Take Credit & Influence

This women’s leadership session focuses on how to handle challenging, gender-charged workplace situations. This session addresses taming your inner critic to create a more positive mindset. Tapping into greater confidence is an essential step to doubt-proof your ideas, so you can back them up when questioned. We will cover strategies to equip you to interrupt when you can’t otherwise get a word in, disagree with influence, take credit for your ideas and avoid apologizing unnecessarily.
