Many people (men included) inadvertently undermine their own authority through body language\, tone of voice\, and cadence of speech. \nImportantly\, you have the power to change these behaviors and improve your presence. \nIn one day\, this workshop for women gives participants the skills to command a room while still maintaining their authentic self. \nKey takeaways:\n Project confidence and authority\n Have more presence\n Increase self-awareness \n  \n URL: LOCATION:178 Middle Street\, Suite 503\, Portland\, ME\, 04101\, United States CATEGORIES:Workshops END:VEVENT BEGIN:VEVENT DTSTART;TZID=America/New_York:20180621T090000 DTEND;TZID=America/New_York:20180621T170000 DTSTAMP:20180420T055331 CREATED:20170719T194809Z LAST-MODIFIED:20180222T212651Z SUMMARY:Finding Your Executive Voice DESCRIPTION:What happens when we don’t communicate effectively and clearly as leaders and managers?: \n\nAudience confusion and lack of clear objectives.\nWhen an audience doesn’t understand\, it’s difficult to build consensus and implement ideas.\nLack of clarity can highlight a poor cultural fit.\n\nWhat if speakers were able to clearly and concisely state their intent without using confusing language or overly-technical terms? What if people easily understood your intention and your value? \nEach participant will gain valuable communication skills in a workshop setting: \n\nSave time and improve buy-in using clear and concise communication.\nIncrease influence and credibility by developing leadership skills.\nDevelop the crucial skill of building alignment across disciplines.\n\nThe result is a happier workplace culture. \nWorkshop Description: \nSeth is known for leading workshops that get to the heart of the possibilities within each person. Rather than spend the time going through a cookie-cutter process\, each participant will have an opportunity to engage in a process of clarifying their own language\, communication style\, and impact in real time. Seth creates an environment in which people can be honest\, accept feedback\, and grow. He will be leading this workshop with public relations expert  Ted O’Meara\, who has worked on several political campaigns and helped businesses align their messages more accurately with their values. \n URL: LOCATION:178 Middle Street\, Suite 503\, Portland\, ME\, 04101\, United States CATEGORIES:Workshops END:VEVENT END:VCALENDAR
