(Cancelled) Getting Ahead at Any Level: What Your Boss Wishes You Knew – April 21, 2016

career-advancementWhen it comes to taking the next step in your career – regardless of your current level of expertise or years in the biz – do you understand the skills needed to truly stand out among your peers? Despite having a strong foothold in core PR competencies – both traditional and emerging – strategic thinking and soft skills differentiate those who advance and excel, allowing you to be more influential, interesting and memorable.

In this session, you’ll hear personal accounts from PR and communications professionals at varying levels and in several disciplines to gain deeper insight on what supervisors expect from managers – green or seasoned – as well as lessons learned while reaching for new career goals. You will also learn actionable insights including:

  • Tips for thinking and speaking more strategically to an executive audience
  • Re-framing how you measure success at a managerial level and beyond, e.g., shifting from personal achievements to team achievements
  • Navigating difficult conversations to enhance your role as a strategic adviser
  • Learning how to delegate tasks more effectively and productively
  • Avoiding the most common errors that drive bosses crazy
