Speaking Topics

Negotiate Like a Boss: How To Be a Fierce Self-Advocate 

Gone are the days when negotiating was only for a performance review, job interview or the big pitch. Professional women negotiate all day every day—for better project deadlines, to resolve a standstill within a team—even to take their PTO. How can you make the most of these conversations—regardless of whether it's with a direct report, boss, peer or customer? Leveraging tips from her award-winning book, PUSHBACK: How Smart Women Ask–and Stand Up–for What They Want, Selena Rezvani teaches you how to prepare for these daily negotiations, flex your style based on the topic or person with whom you're negotiating, manage tradeoffs, and get the "Yes" answer you need.

Turn Up Your Executive Presence

Most aspiring leaders know they need executive presence. Yet, presence can be mystifying and hard to define. This "it" quality is shaped not only by how you're broadly regarded - but how you're experienced and perceived on a daily basis. Zeroing in on three executive presence "filters," participants practice being the "confident leader" even when dealing with imperfect conditions and uncertainties.  Deviating sharply from the message that women are somehow deficient, this session gives women positive, smart, and strong moves to drive their plans forward.

Boost Your Self-Leadership in Times of Change 

Whether a large scale disruption or an everyday change to the status quo, change leadership requires first managing yourself and then, leading others. Learn self-management tools to regulate your own reactions and coaching skills that will inspire and guide others to adapt to change. Avoid the most common change leadership pitfalls, come away with a tangible change leadership plan, and learn to see change as an opportunity. 

 

Showing Up as a Leader On Remote Teams

Remote teams are the new normal. Yet teams come with unique challenges. How can you distinguish your performance as a leader or member of these teams? In this session, you’ll learn behavioral Do’s and Don’ts that can either foster or corrode a culture of collaboration and trust – and strategies to help you reduce “social distance,” structure meetings inclusively, and sharpen your team’s collective focus. You'll come away with clear takeaways on how to promote belonging on your team, regardless of a person's role or level.

Disrupting Everyday Gender Bias: How To Be An Ally 

Across many industries, women remain vastly underrepresented in the highest ranks of business. Gender bias, often unconscious in nature, remains a significant barrier to women's career advancement and can be difficult to recognize and avert. This session gives women a common vocabulary for identifying, disrupting, and overcoming 3 common gender biases in the workplace. Through a mix of research, stories, and practical solutions, participants learn new ways to stop bias in its tracks and advocate for a more inclusive, respectful work culture.
