August 29th - 15th Women's Series: Emotional Self-Defense
We are pleased to invite you to our
15th Women’s Series:
Tuesday, August 29th at 6PM
How Developing Your Basic Human Skills Can Give You The Confidence To Live Your Life To Its Full Potential, Without Unnecessary Fear!
This quarter's event will be hosted by the BABC-Georgia and BDO Atlanta. Jennifer Riis-Poulsen will educate and empower us through her innovative self defense program.
The American Psychologist, Abraham Maslow, provided us with a pyramid of basic human needs. The foundation of this pyramid must be in place in order to fully reach our true potential. Part of the foundation is safety needs, which includes the need to protect ourselves and to be free from fear and chaos. By using POWERHOUSE as an acronym, you will discover how training your skills in Prediction, Recognition, Observation and Intuition can develop your awareness and increase your emotional and social intelligence, giving you the confidence to achieve your goals.
August 31st - What's at the core of your personal brand?
Time to simplify the path to your personal brand. Learn the keys to revealing YOUR brand superpowers and, better yet, make them work for you. In an ultra-connected globalized world, we see and hear others and often compare ourselves to what others do “right”, instead of looking at ourselves and finding our own talent superpowers.
Dr. Martin Luther King and other icons like Warren Buffet and Richard Branson accomplish great things because of the confidence derived from focusing on what they do well. Imagine if Dr. King had said, “I will devote time and energy to being more cautious, analytical, and risk avoidance to be more well-rounded.” Dr. King left a legacy by living boldly in his strengths and our country was forever changed.
Are you missing your calling, and fullest potential, by not knowing and investing in your talents?
Can you connect the dots between your talents and their potential impact? Can you articulate your personal brand? Most people can’t, but it’s become essential in the marketplace and workplace.
Join us if you’re ready for a game changer! You’ll witness Monique Lung's top talents in action as she demonstrates how understanding and applying her talents changed her game. She will share portraits of executives who are building their personal brand. To be successful today, executives and entrepreneurs must be able to clearly communicate their personal brand.
If you’d like to learn:
• how to articulate your differentiator and stand out from the pack
• how to leverage the power of a personal brand
• how your brand does the heavy lifting for you (and highlights your natural strengths)
then this presentation is for you!
