Gender Bilingual Communication*
(Half-day Workshop)

Set yourself apart. Clearly communicate your value in terms that can't be misunderstood. Lead with clarity and intention.

Men and women are not from different planets. It's our culture that imparts gender-specific communication styles. Women don't need to become men to succeed in leadership, women (and men) need to communicate effectively with both genders.

This fun, high-energy workshop is rich with new research and practical insights on what effective communication has to do with accelerating women's leadership and what it takes to create a better work environment for all. This course isn't just for women. Men benefit, too.

Negotiate to Close the Gap*
(Half-day Workshop)

Get what you deserve.

This workshop offers valuable skills and tools for participants to negotiate compensations, promotions, and business contracts that measure up to their full value. Participants learn to create personal strategies to achieve their due rewards professionally and personally. Contact us to learn more.

I took your workshop a year ago and articulated that my personal action plan goal was to become a vice president of my firm. I used the Power Tool #3 "Use What You’ve Got" to differentiate myself and demonstrate my value to the company as the co-chair of the African American affinity group, and focused the group on bringing resources to the company. Today, I was informed I am being promoted to vice president.”
