September Workshop: Amp It Up: How to Build Your Personal Power and Executive Presence

Personal power in the workplace is that intangible something that makes people listen to and respect you – not as a result of intimidation or other negative methods but through positive means.  If you sometimes lack confidence or feel invisible, talked over, or marginalized, it is time to AMP UP your personal power for increased, constructive impact and influence, regardless of your current job or situation. There may be things you are doing to sabotage your personal power, or you simply may not be fully owning it.  Personal power is more than just being assertive to get the results, credit, and rewards you deserve. It is also an attitude, a presence, and a demeanor.  You have seen it in others.  Some people, even when in more junior positions, just seem to have a way about them that commands respect.  Some people, even when not in leadership positions, seem to have a strong executive presence.  You, too, can have this while still being the real you.
