Do you struggle to sell yourself?
Do you find managing up, frustrating?
Is leading meetings outside your comfort zone?
Impromptu speaking something you dread?
Is networking awkward?
𝗬𝗼𝘂 𝗮𝗿𝗲 𝗻𝗼𝘁 𝗮𝗹𝗼𝗻𝗲 - 𝗶𝗻𝘁𝗿𝗼𝘃𝗲𝗿𝘁𝘀 𝗿𝗲𝗽𝗿𝗲𝘀𝗲𝗻𝘁 𝗮 𝗺𝗮𝗷𝗼𝗿𝗶𝘁𝘆 𝗶𝗻 𝗺𝗮𝗻𝘆 𝗼𝗰𝗰𝘂𝗽𝗮𝘁𝗶𝗼𝗻𝘀 𝘀𝘂𝗰𝗵 𝗮𝘀 𝗶𝗻𝗳𝗼𝗿𝗺𝗮𝘁𝗶𝗼𝗻 𝘁𝗲𝗰𝗵𝗻𝗼𝗹𝗼𝗴𝘆, 𝗲𝗻𝗴𝗶𝗻𝗲𝗲𝗿𝗶𝗻𝗴, 𝗳𝗶𝗻𝗮𝗻𝗰𝗲, 𝗮𝗻𝗱 𝗼𝗽𝗲𝗿𝗮𝘁𝗶𝗼𝗻𝘀.
Wouldn't it be fantastic if you could:
✅Lead meetings with confidence, managing participants with ease
✅Manage up and down the organization, clearly communicating your needs
✅Network authentically, connecting with intention and driving desirable outcomes
✅Self-promote to obtain the positions you deserve and have earned

I grew up a reserved, humble, lonely and overweight nerd. In high school, I had a small circle of friends and lacked self-confidence. Without telling you my entire life story: I know what it feels like to sit in a meeting full of great ideas, but afraid to speak out. I know what it feels like to stand in front of executives and become tongue tied. I know what it feels like to know what I want but be afraid to ask for it.

✅ I’ve changed the course of the quality philosophy of a multi-billion dollar company.
✅ I’ve brought reliability testing capabilities to facilities that never had them before.
✅ I’ve created training courses and convinced management to deploy to the leadership.
As I looked back on all of those - I found was none of it was part of my technical knowledge.
