Marketing Me, My Career, My Ideas!

November 17, 2010

Speaker: Jean Caton
 
Too many women believe the myth that excellent work and long hours are the answer to landing top jobs and being enormously successful when they do. The reality is career success takes much more.

The Women's Leadership and Mentoring Alliance (WLMA) enjoyed a dynamic presentation by Jean Caton , "The Business Woman's Coach." Jean offered simple, practical advice to market your strengths and skills. Her presentations are based on her personal career working for over 20 years in Fortune 500 companies as well as her experience coaching women at mid and senior levels in diverse industries.

Jean mapped out the essential strategies and tactics to use to get recognized and be successful at every level by marketing and promoting your strengths, skills, ideas, projects, and programs... your products!

Running for Office: Getting Yourself Elected to the Career You Really Want

October 28, 2010

Speaker: Mary Anne Gale, retired Procter & Gamble executive and Author

Ms. Gale shared that many professionals fail to achieve the success they believe they earned because they don't understand the dynamics of the workplace.  Mary Anne Gale helped us to see the workplace as a democracy, where top performers get 'elected' to roles based on their relationships with decision-makers who advocate for them and 'vote' on their behalf.  She discussed her book which explains why senior leaders view these relationships as beneficial, and argues that relationship building requires the same level of strategic focus as developing skills and experiences, and delivering great results.
