Amplify Your Accomplishments | April 2020

Nora Denzel says, “It’s not what you know and it’s not who you know. It’s who knows what you know.” Your company and colleagues can’t fully appreciate how to leverage you as a resource if they don’t know about your track record and unique talents. Find the approach to amplifying your accomplishments and value that fits your style and is effective in your organization. (Training)

  26. 26. Copyright Be Leaderly 2020Copyright Be Leaderly 2020 The soul-crushing truth about women & self-promotion • Women can elicit negative reactions when demonstrating assertive self-advocacy. • We pay a penalty for failing to show stereotypical “feminine traits” (humble, nurturing, collaborative…) • As a result, some women miss out on leadership opportunities.

  27. 27. Copyright Be Leaderly 2020 The exasperating double-bind: Self-promote & be sidelined for lacking social skills. Fail to self-promote & have your competence questioned.
  28. 28. Copyright Be Leaderly 2020Copyright Be Leaderly 2020 Be a game-changer • When influential women lead by example, assertively calling attention to high performance, it becomes expected, rewarded, and normalized. • You can make a difference, bust biases, and shift your organization’s culture.
