Session I
• Overcoming fear, self-doubt and “imposter syndrome”: Fear drives everything we do; unless we learn how to harness what scares us, we will never fully reach our potential for impact. So many of us struggle with doubting our abilities and focusing on the experience or knowledge we “don’t” have instead of the talents, skills and interests we “do” possess that provide a great deal of value to those we serve. This session is designed to help participants overcome feeling as though they may “not belong at the decision-making table” so they can contribute in a more meaningful way to their own careers and the “impact paths” of others.


Monday, November 25, 11:30 a.m. – 2:00 p.m.
Weinberg Park Heights JCC, Board Room
Session II
• Executive Presence, its role in bridging generations in the workplace and community, and how to “manage up”: There’s never been a more dramatic gap between workforce generations than now, and the struggle for colleagues to understand one another poses a legitimate threat to progress. It often falls to the younger generations to understand the management/work style of their more seasoned colleagues, and to foster meaningful connections it is essential that we are aware of how our physical presence, language, communication skills, self-confidence and management style affect our ability to be impactful. This session will help participants become more aware of how they are perceived by their colleagues and managers so they may be more effective in their endeavors.
