Making Connections: Becoming a Sponsorable Woman

You may have had an informal mentor, but research shows having a sponsor may be a differentiator when striving to reach your career goals. Sponsors are leaders who will put their reputation on the line to promote you and your career. The problem is sponsors are busy people and selective about who they promote.
What do you need to do differently to be someone others will want to sponsor? Rita will share effective, research-based practices for becoming a sponsorable woman, including:

  • Executive Presence and Personal Branding – what they are and how you develop them
  • Speaking with Confidence – capture the attention of others by speaking with power, not fear
  • Multi-generational Communication – the dos and don’ts of communicating with senior leaders
  • Balancing Your Work and Your World – being exceptional does not mean giving up self-care

Rita will help audience members develop strategies to make connections and become mentionable, sponsorable, and promotable.
