November Forum: The Art of Tactful Self-Promotion at Work & in Life

Everyone needs to increase visibility to get the opportunities, recognition and rewards they deserve!

No matter what your life stage, tactful self-promotion is a critical career competency for creating options and remaining marketable. Are you:

  • bookstacknew to a career?
  • planning Act III?
  • starting a business?
  • looking for a job?
  • putting together a portfolio career?
  • trying to make it as a consultant or a contractor in the “gig” economy?

Based on their work with, literally, thousands of people who were interested in advancing their careers, our presenters have created a model, strategies and tactics, that even the most reserved can take to increase their visibility without violating their integrity and values (and without triggering a panic attack!).

This is presented in their newly published book, Power Your Career: The Art of Tactful Self-Promotion at Work. In the book they provide real world examples, practical approaches and immediate tips to help people promote themselves.
