Date Topic Description
October 27, 2021 Communicating with Confidence – You’re in the Spotlight Knowing how to give and receive feedback is a leadership essential. Developing tactics for handling criticism—especially comments that feel like sabotage—will help you stay poised and confident.

While we all influence others through our communication, some people seem more skilled than others.  Most leave their communication/ presentation abilities to merely “picking up” ideas, concepts and techniques along the way and “winging it” when the time comes.  Very few professionals intentionally train themselves to develop the skill of presenting and communicating well.

November 10, 2021 Perfectionism Perfection is one of the most pervasive challenges holding women leaders back – in fact, 97 percent of people struggle with some form of perfectionism.  We too often believe that if we achieve perfection, we will also achieve happiness and success -whether it be in our professional life, personal life, or in ourselves.  This belief is holding us back.  Symptoms of perfectionism include procrastination, control, people-pleasing, unrealistic expectations, conflict avoidance, feeling stuck, imposter syndrome, all-or-nothing thinking, anxiety, comparison, and stress.  In Overcoming Perfectionism, you will learn how to take your energy toward perfectionism and turn it to success.
