Become A Person Of Influence: Mentors, Sponsors & ROLE Models

What does it mean to be a person of influence? In this hands-on session, we’ll explore what it takes to stay on track as leaders while lending a hand to those who work with us and for us. Participants will learn how to:
• Cultivate the strategic relationships needed (mentors, sponsors, champions) to expand the impact of their (or their team's) ideas and build a sustainable career
• Become a respected role model for others
• Amplify their voice through unique as well as time-tested strategies
• Create a plan to become more influential this year - even if there are already too many things on their to do list
• Support and champion each other to all achieve their career aspirations

confidence: how do i get more of that?

What does it take to be more confident, even in new situations, high-stress settings or when we feel we may not have support? Is confidence something you're born with or is it a mindset we can shift? Are there some skills and behaviors we can learn to actually be more confident? In this experiential workshop, we'll explore the answers to these questions as well as share our tactics for building confidence, appearing confident (even when we're not) and what it takes to set ourself up for success no matter what situation we're walking into. We'll also explore the inner messages that may shake our confidence and how to find the inner wisdom to guide us on our way.
