You intend to stay poised—not react—in difficult interactions, but then you end up emotionally hijacked. You approach situations with confidence only to find the tables turned on you. You radiate confidence on the outside, but inside you’re in knots, worrying what others actually think of you. You’re exhausted.
These all-too-common scenarios happen when you are not in your power—reacting instead of responding. What if you could stay centered and act to improve outcomes for everyone, including yourself? What if you could quiet the internal noise and channel your energy into having big impact—and inner peace? What if you could turn people who seem like adversaries into advocates for your ideas? That’s being in your power!
In this presentation, Sharon Melnick, PhD shares actionable tools for being ‘in your power’ so you can recoup wasted energy. Drawing on 10 years of psychology research at Harvard Medical School and experience coaching 35,000 women, Dr. Melnick will share 3 essential practices to give you mental space, set up your next level advancement, and be the role model who creates a culture in which everyone thrives.
Learn how to:
- Avoid getting emotionally hijacked by difficult people so you can stay calm and create the “weather” around you
- Show up as the best version of yourself to turn around situations in which you don’t feel ‘in control’
- Use the power you already have to make a bigger impact with less effort
Every woman has much more power than she thinks. This session will help you own it and use it to elevate your income and influence. Every woman in her power is a Change Agent!
