Spring Workshop: "Coaching Strong Women in the Art of Strategic Persuasion"
Friday, March 28, 2008
1:30 p.m. to 5:00 p.m.
USC Davidson Conference Center, Club Room
This workshop is designed to provide powerful women with skills to succeed in accomplishing their goals in negotiations and meetings. Participants will be introduced to techniques that people in the theater and in leadership training understand about how to be effective. They will learn how to articulate a clear purpose, land their message, be heard, enhance personal presence, depersonalize attacks, and manage hot moments.
Participants are asked to bring examples of past challenging negotiations or meetings. These moments are examined in the workshop, through the use of role plays. Discussion, coaching, and the replay of scenarios creates a highly interactive, personal and powerful learning of the wide range of tactics available for success. Participants will leave with a superior sense of how to think strategically about their professional challenges and leadership opportunities.
The facilitators, Nancy Houfek and Lee Warren (Harvard University), are experienced professionals in human resources, leadership training, teaching, and higher education administration, with successful presentations in many venues including academia. Participants are encouraged to wear comfortable clothes.
