$75.00 (USD)

Building credibility is a fundamental requirement for success in any role. Credibility is intentional, not a random process that “just happens.” You build credibility by delivering value to others and helping them solve their problems, not by being the smartest person in the room. Native intelligence and experience only get you so far. Without credibility, people stagnate in their careers. They become frustrated. They get passed over for promotions.

This workshop will describe how to build credibility and develop the emotional intelligence you need for professional success and greater impact on your organization or business.
