Course Description

Presence, Poise, and Polish

You are confident that you have the technical skills required for the job. Yet, you aren’t as certain that you are viewed as "leadership material" or the person who "has what it takes." People with strong presence are able to connect with and inspire those around them – a critical factor in leading others.  During this workshop, we will take a practical, action-oriented approach that can enhance your presence, poise, and polish.
