We are launching our second chapter in Lowell, MA. Our launch event will take place on September 24 at 5 pm. The event is generously sponsored by the Manning School of Business, UMass Lowell, and will be introduced by Dean Sandra Richtermeyer. Kim Meninger, our volunteer and an executive, career, and development coach will present on how to use “Self-Promotion Strategies to Raise Your Visibility, Increase Your Influence and Advance Your Career”.
Many women are reluctant to actively promote their value because it feels self-serving or inauthentic. Rather than promote themselves, they prefer to believe that their work will speak for itself. Unfortunately, without the confidence and commitment to share your value with others, you may lose out on important opportunities to raise your visibility, make a bigger impact and advance within your organization.
In this seminar, you’ll learn:
- What it means (and does not mean) to engage in strategic self-promotion
- Why self-promotion is challenging for so many women
- Key benefits to yourself and others when you actively promote your value
- Practical, actionable strategies to help you authentically promote your value across your organization
