Embody, Exude & Embrace Gravitas - The X Factor of Leadership

Take back control & build confidence as a woman in leadership

Dr Mahler believes that confidence is competence and that confidence lies in building the practical, highly effective and immediately applicable skills as practised by the Ancient Romans to achieve Gravitas –  the manner of trust and respect. These skills involve the use of the body, gestures, as well as the voice, with solid frameworks of engagement. So, let’s look at what you are doing now, what you could be doing and get practising right away.

Do any of these scenarios ring true as a woman in leadership?

  • Not being able to communicate or get your message through, feeling that you just can’t think. Over time you realise you’re losing influence and confidence.
  • When attending meetings, feeling like, when you do speak, you are just rambling? You don’t want to dominate the room, but you do have a message to get through and yet can’t seem to find it amongst the noise in the group.
  • Sometimes, you’re put on the spot and have to think on your feet. Getting your mind and voice to work in sync to get a message across under pressure can be a challenge that impacts your ability to influence or your credibility as a leader.

In this unmissable seminar, Dr Louise Mahler will share how to shed the burden of self-doubt, and say hello to unshakable confidence! Learn how to command respect, project your intentions effectively, and navigate the workplace with certainty and authority.
