What does it take to project authority and convey a sense of confidence to a room? What if you could intuitively know how to fill a room with your presence?
Women are often given inadequate feedback on their communication and their leadership styles (link to HBR article from 2016). Whether this is due to gender bias, ignorance or a lack of good mentors, the result is the same: confusion and women leaders who are unsure of how to claim their space and voice in a room.
Clear and specific feedback on communication behaviors and a better understanding of what happens in communication can lead to greater awareness and immediate improvement. A subtle shift in body language and voice is often enough to profoundly affect one’s presence. Many people inadvertently undermine their own authority through body language, tone of voice, and cadence of speech simply because they don’t know that they are doing it.
Being clearer and more intentional in your communication can effectively improve your ability to influence the room and be heard in spite of whatever bias might be in the culture.
This workshop for women gives participants a safe space to practice the skills needed to command a room while still maintaining their authentic self.
