In a perfect world, women would be able to fully and freely be themselves in the workplace. In reality, though, they are met with societal pressures, gender expectations and racial stereotypes that challenge their ability to be true to who they are. And, it can be easy to magnify fear of rejection and failure and to play small in order to keep external peace. But, doing so hurts them and the organizations they work for. In this captivating keynote, composed with the perfect blend of storytelling and research, Candace Doby teaches audiences a three-part process to help them manage fear, activate personal courage, and take risks so that they can spend less time and energy censoring or hiding themselves and more time demonstrating their value, promise and power.
This presentation is appropriate for organizations that want to unlock the potential of its leaders who identify as female, retain happier leaders, and help employees develop personally and professionally.
Leaders within your organization possess a unique set of skills and qualities capable of distinguishing them from others and creating distinctive value for clients and teammates. But when they become burdened by perfectionism, self-doubt and imposture syndrome, they make it impossible to own and demonstrate their brilliance, which is necessary to help the company reach its highest level of greatness. Instead, these leaders lose focus, diminish their productivity and weaken their ability to perform to their potential. In this presentation, speaker and author Candace Doby gives leaders the strategies they need to courageously own their brilliance, manage self-doubt and make a bigger impact on their companies.
This presentation is appropriate for companies that want to help boost their employees’ productivity and creativity by helping them conjure the courage to own and demonstrate their unique talents and skills, even when times are uncertain or challenging.
