Image is often the subtle difference in your career success.  Taking a strategic, proactive approach to building, managing and refining your image is the key to forward movement in your profession. This Webinar will discuss how to develop your image from the day-to-day behaviors that others notice.  We will also talk about definition and habits that will serve you well while redefining your image. Changing your behaviors for a new role or stronger reputation will be a benchmark discussion item.

By the end of the webinar, participants will be able to:

  • Understand the overall image that you want others to have of you.
  • Outline how to develop the three strongest behaviors you want others to know about your performance.
  • Define and establish goals for the short term to quickly reposition behaviors that might be working against your preferred image.

An added value piece to the webinar will be a discussion on Professional Presence and how your image aligns with your professionalism.
