April 6 | Learn to Own Your Voice with Assertive Communications with WCSA & GlobalWin
Being assertive is essential for leadership. We know this! The data reveals the same conclusions: assertive communicators are more likely to be seen as leaders, are more sure of themselves, and are more often promoted.
Join Bossed Up Founder & CEO Emilie Aries and the Women’s Congressional Staff Association, and GlobalWIN to learn how to own your voice with assertive communication like a boss!
Emilie will unpack the nuanced differences between assertive and aggressive behavior and the many benefits of asserting yourself (strategically) and advocating for yourself at work. Participants will hone best practices for assertive communication through verbal, visual, and vocal mediums as a way to better understand the messages they are sending.
Connect with the women paving the path to female leadership in Washington as you join our growing community of courageous, ambitious women crafting their careers with passion and purpose.
