Whether preparing a resume, sitting for an interview/performance review, addressing your team or presenting to the Board of Directors… it’s not about you!! Simply being good – or great – at your role is not enough. In fact it often hinders one’s growth because they approach life with a ‘Look what I can do’ and/or ‘I want… I deserve… I’m entitled to…’ attitude.

At some point in our lives, MOST of us realized that the world did not revolve around us… and what WE wanted. When the shock of this realization wore off most learned to accept this truth and still reach for our goals, albeit hampered by this restricting reality. However, some see the beauty of this arrangement as the ultimate “We all can win” approach to life including work, relationships and personal achievements.

This session's objective is to provide the innovative with specific tools to be used across life’s spectrum: from preparing resumes, conducting performance reviews, dealing with suppliers/customers, addressing top management, and asking for a raise/promotion to courting, marriage and rearing children.
