Summary: This webinar will boldly address why women are not received favorably or promoted in male-dominated industries, and offers practical suggestions for advancing. The webinar will look at how communication, confidence and managing perceptions are critical to working your way to the top of the ladder. Elizabeth will also addresses other specific workplace issues, such as how to work with another woman that you don’t like in the office, and why it’s important to your career. Elizabeth believes in identifying other women for promotions and promoting women into key leadership positions. This talk will leave you feeling reflective as well as inspired. Participants will learn:
— What to say and what not to say in meetings and email
— How confidence is built over time and how to develop confidence
— Data around why women aren’t promoted — and how to turn it around
— Collaborative and inclusive ways to work in male-dominated fields such as IT, construction or insurance
Bio: Elizabeth Lions is the author of three books, including “Recession Proof Yourself” and “I Quit! Working for You Isn’t Working For Me.” Her third book will be released on leadership and is entitled, “Hear Us Roar: Unapologetic Women Leading in Corporate America.” She has designed and developed leadership, career courses, webinars and even a radio show entitled “Leadership Lessons from the Lioness,” featured on Plaid for Women. Over the course of her career, Elizabeth estimates she has read more than 100,000 resumes and hired thousands of professionals in some of America’s top organization, including Intel, Fiserv, Wells Fargo, Microsoft, Precision Castparts and AT&T, to name a few. An expert adviser on career conundrums, Elizabeth has been quoted in Yahoo, The Ladders, and Dice job boards. Her words have reached as far as the front page of the Philadelphia Tribune, PBS, CBS Money Watch, Dale Carnegie and John Tesh’s blog. In 2014, she took her leadership courses to Dubai and the Middle East. Bottom line: Elizabeth knows why someone is hired, fired or promoted — often before they do.
Today, Elizabeth can be found writing, coaching and collaborating with the who’s who of the Corporate America. When she isn’t working, Elizabeth can be found traveling across state lines with her husband on their Harley Davidson motorcycle or in the yoga studio twisting for hours on end.
