Partner Event - ACP Philadelphia - May Meeting - Leadership Presence: Portraying Confidence & Courage...Even When You're Neither

  • 10 May 2019
  • 7:45 AM - 11:00 AM
  • The Pyramid Club - 52nd Floor, 1735 Market St, Philadelphia

Program Description

No one is confident and courageous all the time. You may have experienced trepidation about sharing ideas during interviews or meetings, being asked to explain a complex or ambiguous decision/situation or advocating a position. These are just a few situations that can bring out your insecurities. And, if you are an introvert or have a "quiet" demeanor, others may think you lack confidence -- or that you are a pushover.

As experienced professionals, it is essential to project confidence to senior leaders, interviewers, staff, teams and clients. You want people to have no doubt that you can handle their challenges successfully. Additionally, saying what really needs to be said can take courage. When you exude leadership presence, others notice. In fact, lacking these skills can hold back your career -- even if you have great experience, expertise and knowledge.

Learn how to project an air of self-assurance, face your fears, build your career and, if necessary, pick your battles.

Learning Outcomes:

  • Understand what holds people back from being Confident and Courageous
  • Understand the interplay between Confidence and Competence and their impact on taking action and influence
  • Determine what skillful Confidence and Courage look like
  • Learn techniques for portraying Confidence and Courage


Registration includes a light breakfast and an engaging morning of networking with fellow career professionals from throughout the Greater Philadelphia area!
