About this event

Professional Presence: How to Assert and Promote Yourself for Positive Outcomes, with Shelagh Donnelly - 75 minutes

Assistants often excel at advocating for others and taking care of their colleagues’ needs. Many are not as comfortable, though, when it comes to asserting themselves or negotiating on their own behalf. Whether you're an introvert, extrovert or ambivert (with qualities of both introversion and extroversion), you can impact your career satisfaction, performance and progress by asserting yourself with executive presence.

Whether it’s a matter of negotiating deliverables and deadlines, or saying “no” when that’s the appropriate response, you need to draw on communication skills. The same is true when it comes to effectively articulating your needs and wants, and the value you add to your organisation. Developing and honing these skills can benefit both you and your employer. When you effectively assert and advocate for yourself, that can result in greater clarity of communications and reduce misunderstandings and frustrations.

If you’re ready to enhance your ability to speak up for yourself and refine your negotiating skills, join Shelagh in this session. Plan to explore why and how self-promotion needn’t be an unwelcome concept. We’ll also look at visibility and recognition, and how to achieve these for all the right reasons.

Key learning objectives

1. Why and how to assert and even promote yourself

2. Elevating career satisfaction, performance and progress and others' awareness of the value you bring to the organisation, whether you're an introvert, extrovert or ambivert (who has qualities of both introversion and extroversion)

3. Using body language and executive presence to underscore your value

Organizer Shelagh Donnelly, Exceptional EA

Organizer of Professional Presence: How to Assert & Promote Yourself, w/Shelagh Donnelly

The best assistants are always learning, through experience and by engaging in professional development. While plans for a number of conferences and other in-person learning opportunities have been postponed, that needn’t put a pause on your professional growth.

In fact, given the way 2020 continues to unfold, it may be more critical than ever to continue to connect, learn and adapt. Shelagh's adapting as well, and is offering webinars focused on how to navigate and succeed during these interesting times.

Investments in quality and yourself

When you attend Shelagh's webinars, you’re investing in quality and in yourself.

It’s astute to take advantage of complimentary webinars you may find helpful; Shelagh has delivered and attended some herself. There are limitations, though, on the depth of professional development that can be acquired without financial investment.

That’s why it’s also astute, given post-pandemic changes and challenges ahead, to invest in learning from someone who’s walked the walk for decades, and done so during times of not only growth, but also upheaval and recession. Someone who knows what it’s like to be an on-call employee as well as having been a direct report to four CEOs and having supported board chairs, which was Shelagh's last role before turning to speaking and writing full time in 2019.


Post-event access to webinar recording

You’ll have access to a recording of the webinar for a 30-day period after the live event. This can come in handy if you’d like to review a concept, and if time zones or people throw your schedule for a loop the day of a webinar.


Certificates of attendance

After attending, you’ll receive a certificate of attendance to add to your portfolio and help track your professional development. Such records are also useful when preparing for performance reviews/evaluations.
