For ambitious Women in Design.
Say Goodbye to Imposter Syndrome.
Learn the must-have skills of a truly inspirational, influential and transformational leader.

 

Executive Presence has long been acknowledged as a critical factor in leadership. However, its definition is often mysterious, people struggle to capture what it really means and the default assumption is to equate presence with appearance and presentation skills. While these factors are important, they make up only a small piece of the “executive presence puzzle” that helps leaders achieve sustained levels of success.

 

The main characteristics that differentiate True Leaders from the average executive are the ability to really engage, inspire and move people to act. How can you master these leadership must-have skills to further your own success?

Geared specifically at ambitious, talented women in senior roles in the design industry, this workshop will provide you with insights and practical tools that will support you to elevate your career to where you want it to go – whether that is a more senior position in your current agency or organisation, engaging new or higher profile clients, selecting the highest value work, starting/growing your own design or creative business or even saying “no” more often.

Executive and Communications coach, Paula Mullin, has carefully combined the two worlds of Executive and Communications coaching to facilitate individuals to recognise their own unique talents and allow them to show up authentically and get the results they want.

She will introduce you to the Bates ExPi model of Executive Presence, which provides valuable strategies that can support women in elevating their own level of presence, helping them engage with a wide range of stakeholders.

Using the Bates ExPI model, the session will look at the three dimensions of Executive Presence:

1) Character, 2) Substance and 3) Style.

      1. Character – The dimension that focuses on building trust. Exploring the facet of authenticity and how you can connect more with people by sharing relevant personal stories.
      2. Substance – This is the dimension that builds credibility, the importance of demonstrating practical wisdom and communicating your vision with your key stakeholders. Confidence will be a key priority in the Substance dimension, overcoming “imposter syndrome” and showing up to make strong and timely decisions that deliver results.
      3. Style – The dimension that inspires action, learning how to have much more impact when communicating in boardrooms or when presenting by making subtle but significant changes.

Who should attend?

This workshop is aimed at mid and senior-level women working in Design who are keen to take the next step in their careers.

 

You will come away with:

Clarity, confidence and empowerment to make the necessary behavioural changes to progress in your career.

 

Join expert facilitator and coach Paula Mullin to explore the dimensions of Executive Presence and how you can develop and harness it in your career as a woman in Design.
