Here's a detailed agenda.
You already have a personal brand. But is it a leadership brand? In this session, claim a unique and distinctive leadership niche by connecting the dots from your leadership strengths to work you love to do—that is also a valuable asset to your organization. Craft a leadership brand statement that stands for something bigger than you can accomplish alone—and compels those around you to sit up, pay attention, and see the leader in you.
The stakes can be high, but a well-chosen, high-profile role or stretch assignment can be career defining, and it can propel you to new heights. Learn to recognize opportunities that showcase your strengths and potential—while artfully declining the ones that don’t—so you’re neither over-stretching nor under-stretching. You’ll walk away with new inspiration for finding your next career-defining opportunity, and executing it like a rock star.
Have you ever felt like the best-kept secret in your organization? No matter how urgent, important, or never-ending your workload is, you can’t afford to spend all your working hours with your head down, working hard, or you’ll silence your voice, submerge your influence, and miss out on career opportunities. In this session, discuss bias-busting “stealth-promotion” tactics for making your leadership brand, value, and accomplishments visible—in a style that’s authentically your own. Identify ways to contribute to a culture in which all achievements are recognized.
You don’t need a title to be a leader or to accomplish amazing things. Your leadership presence—how others experience you as a leader—is being shaped in every interaction you have. Discover five key shifts in mindset and behavior that will help you lift your head up, shift your focus, and rebalance your approach in favor of more leading, and less doing. Leave with a practical plan to “get your shift together” and become the powerhouse leader you were meant to be.
Is there a closed door between you and your next career breakthrough? Kick it down with the backing of influential sponsors. In this session, you’ll get clear on the difference between mentors and sponsors. Understand what sponsorship is, why you’re underestimating its value, and why you can’t ask for it—but you can up your chances to earn it. Learn what sponsors expect from you and six steps for attracting a sponsor’s advocacy. Discuss ways to be an effective sponsor to others.
