Emerging female leaders often find themselves caught in a dilemma. In order to be seen as a leader, an employee must show assertiveness, confidence, and even a bit of self-promotion. Many training programs emphasize that women must be more promotional. However, researchers warn women that due to social norms, promoting yourself, the way men promote themselves, can result in being perceived as less likable. Senior leaders in organizations don’t promote people that they don’t like.
Collaborative promotion is a technique for promoting your work and the work of others in a way that is both likeable and results in leader-bound perceptions. This technique works for men as well as women in improving your promotability. Join us for an hour session where you will learn collaborative promotion. Our session will provide an opportunity to team with other coaches and create effective and likeable promotions.
