Refined professional presence and self-awareness are anchors of your success. This highly interactive training will explore a consideration of self, others, and teams, including how to own your attitude and optimize your impact. One-third of HR and management professionals surveyed believe professionalism has declined, but only half of the participating companies had education programs to address professional behavior (Polk-Lepson Research Group). Professionalism sets equally skilled people apart – it is a distinguishing factor. This workshop will help you refine your professional presence.
