Resumes and interviews are the basic foundation of a job search. The quality of your resume will make-or-break your chances of getting to the interview stage, and if it doesn’t sizzle, it will be lost in the stacks of resumes on every hiring manager’s desk. Once you’ve created a top-notch resume and land an interview, you need to know how to prepare, make a great first impression, and answer questions effectively. Hear from Danielle Bragge as she shares words of wisdom from her 25+ years in the recruitment industry.

Danielle Bragge has over two decades of experience in recruitment and career development coaching in both South Africa and Canada.

circleArrow 5 Ways To Build Presence: How to Unleash Leadership Confidence, Influence and Performance

Presented by Lisa Martin, Professional Certified Coach (PCC)

WATCH RECORDING

If you’re a leader in any organization, of any industry or size, you need to show up every day confident and decisive—able to build strong relationships, communicate effectively and be graceful under pressure. You need to be able to command the room, leave a lasting impression and inspire a sense of trust in others.

In short? You need leadership presence.

In this webinar you’ll learn:

  • Why presence is the ‘X-Factor’ of the business world (and who’s got it and who doesn’t)
  • How people who exude presence are able to easily influence others and get what they want (including promotions and more pay)
  • A mini assessment to determine if you (and your team) possess a high level of presence OR obnoxiousness (no one wants to believe they’re obnoxious, that’s why they are blind to it)
  • The 5 elements of building presence and why you need to master each one
  • How body language says more about you than you think
  • The most important thing leaders must do support their people to improve their presence
