Event Overview
Professional Presence for Young Professionals:

  1. You know you have creative ideas and your work is solid. Now the question is, how do you get others to see it so you can use your talents to contribute in a bigger way?If you don’t look or sound confident, chances are, others won’t be confident in you either. That can be disastrous for your career.
  2. If you have a vision of yourself being an influential leader in your company or community, you don’t want to miss this presentation.
  3. You have creative ideas, lots of energy and are current with the trends, but are you making the impact you want in your workplace?
  4. You’ve probably heard the comments from “seasoned” co-workers, “This younger generation of employees just doesn’t have a strong work ethic, they don’t know how to communicate face-to-face, and have you seen how they dress?” You may want to ignore them, but if they are the ones who can influence your opportunities, you may want to learn a few hints to ensure you are viewed as the valuable asset you are.
Come to Professional Presence for Young Professionals and learn:

  • Top mistakes to avoid if you want to advance in your company
  • Essential techniques to be viewed as an invaluable professional
  • Strategies to look and feel confident (even when you’re not)

Doing It All (And Living to Tell the Tale): Fundamentals of Stress & Tips to Beat It. Life can be exciting and in this fast-paced world, it is tempting to want to do and achieve as much as possible. Whether for financial gain, respect, adulation or personal satisfaction, many of us push ourselves to extremes.

And yet, it might just be that you’re speaking different languages!Learning the language of different behavioral styles will help you interact with others with style and grace, making every relationship easier to foster. In this Lunch N Learn, we will discuss:

  • How to identify the four basic behavioral styles just by observing how the other person dresses, acts and shakes your hand.
  • What motivates the styles to take action.
  • What your dominant style likely is.
  • How your style is perceived by the other styles.

Walk away having a better understanding of how to interact with others for greater success in your career and your life!
