Influence Redefined: Be the Leader You Were Meant to Be, Monday to Monday®
We all want to enhance our influence…but what if we are sabotaging our influence without even knowing it? You may not be as influential as you think you are! Most of us believe if we know our topic or if we feel good we must be good. Influence Redefined will give you the opportunity to take a closer look at what’s really going rather than what you believe to be true.
How you communicate verbally and non-verbally determines whether others see you as credible, knowledgeable and trustworthy. Without doing this effectively, you inhibit your potential to reach a goal of: influencing, increasing profits and building a reputation you’re proud of Monday to Monday®.
Join a 20-plus year keynoter and coach for Fortune 500 leaders as she explores what it takes to be influential Monday to Monday®, how to build a consistent brand and make sure you have the skills to influence others to take action.
During this keynote, you’ll learn:
- Why we are confusing how influential we feel with how influential we actually are
- How to build a consistent brand, Monday to Monday®
- A proven, step-by-step method for creating influence that moves people to action long after an interaction is over
- How to see yourself as others see you. Are you as good-or bad as you think you are when you communicate with influence?
- How to Communicate with brevity; build trust to be heard
- The skills to project confidence and credibility to increase your impact
