Building Presence: How you want to feel and how you want to be perceived

We all have an idea of how we want to feel when we're at our best — we know who we can be, because we've already experienced it! (Sometimes serendipitously, and sometimes through a lot of effort.) Likewise, we know how we want others to perceive us in our ideal world. But how can we turn our sometimes-best versions of ourselves into more-often-than-not best versions?

Cultivating personal presence can feel hit-or-miss when that process isn't paired with intentional investment in behavioral, physical, and verbal techniques to build the characteristics that matter to us. In this workshop, we'll brainstorm how you want to feel and be perceived when you're at the top of your game. Then we'll identify and practice some actionable techniques you can use to make progress on these qualities so you feel and do your best more often.

PLEASE NOTE: Space is limited to 12 attendees; sign up early, and please do your fellow Rubies the courtesy of canceling early if you cannot make the workshop!
