How to Project Confidence with Demanding People

Price: $149


Powerful tactics help you communicate naturally yet assertively

Self-confidence is extremely important in almost every aspect of our lives, yet even people who are generally confident can buckle when facing powerful or demanding people. 

The truth is that many who appear self-confident often aren't. The difference is that they possess a set of skills they can use when needed.

The good news is that you can come across as more self-assured in these situations, too.

In this webinar, you’ll discover techniques you can use to project an aura of confidence that works in any circumstance, but especially when you’re in the hot seat with demanding bosses and colleagues.

You signal your level of self-confidence in many ways: Your facial expression, your body language, how you speak, and what you say. This program shows you tactics you can use to get grounded and present yourself naturally, yet assertively, using both verbal and nonverbal techniques.


We have 2 webinar(s) available starting between 5/21/2015 - 10/22/2015
