Learning Outcome
After participating in this two-hour workshop, you will be able to develop strategies in 4 key areas that will help you reduce the need to be liked by others and focus on building positive relationships with yourself and others.    Overview
Have you ever been labeled as “bossy, bitchy, or brazen” simply because you’re a woman with ideas and a voice that needs to be heard? Do you ever feel yourself holding back because you’re worried about what others will think about you? Cultural pressures often cause women to focus on being likeable. Although there’s nothing wrong with wanting to be liked, this need can limit a woman’s personal and professional growth.

Learn how to take back control of the need to be liked. You will discuss and reflect on the social, economic, and political impact that likeability has on your career. You will brainstorm and develop strategies that will help you turn other people’s labels such as “bossy, bitchy, and brazen” into career-boosting descriptors such as “confident, credible, and competent.” You’ll walk away with a greater understanding of how to nurture your relationships so that your voice is respected and you can be in better possession of yourself as a leader.

Who Should Attend
This webcast is designed for women of all leadership levels who want to explore the connection between a woman’s likeability and her leadership.

If you find yourself giving in to others in order to be liked or you feel that others perceive you in ways that tarnish your reputation, come to this virtual training to learn strategies to take back control of your reputation and ensure that your voice is listened to.
