Negotiating Your Value and Importance – Even If You Are Shy

January 19, 2023, 12:00 p.m. MT

Get Noticed And Have Your Voice Heard

It is no secret that many workplaces make it difficult to speak up or to show your worth. Decision-makers have biases that interfere with seeing their employees for who they really are. Does that mean you should keep your head down and secretly hope to get noticed?

Absolutely not!

This webinar focuses on strategies to be noticed and have your voice heard in a way that will advance rather than disadvantage your career growth.

Participants will learn:
– Push and pull communication strategies to be heard
– Demonstrating authority and credibility with strategic questions and polite interruptions
– The art of reading and positively influencing body language
– What it takes to be seen as valuable – even if you aren’t over six feet, handsome, white, male and born in February!

This webinar will be more applicable for your career advancement and communication abilities than any technical skills you paid thousands of dollars to acquire – and it’s free.

Show up live to get the best results!
