Pre-Conference Workshop: Seven Steps to Reach Your Potential as a Confident, Respected Leader

7 steps to reach your potential as a confident, respected leader starts with the first and often the most omitted step: knowing yourself. The things we often think we are either are not actually the strengths that we possess or are not how the world sees us. Throughout this workshop we are going to explore some of the most often used tests to learn about our personal strengths and weaknesses, how we can leverage those to build an effective team around us, and how we can skew the various situations we face to lean into those strengths and minimize those weaknesses. I often had to do this in the male dominated environment I was required to operate in, but I did it daily, still do, and I thrive. These tools will enable you to lead a harmonious, productive, and inclusive team which respects and yearns for your direction and leadership.

About the Speaker

Can a woman that walked as Miss California in 4” heels command an aircraft in combat? You bet!!

LTCol. Patricia Murray has been speaking to audiences of all ages for over 26 years about how the most ordinary ideas can be extraordinary successes. She has often been told how “lucky” she has been in her life to have achieved so much, but once you listen to her speak, you will learn that it is simply turning life’s normal rejections and failures to her advantage and being ready to seize opportunities when they appear. She is an expert on leadership in high stress and dynamic situations, breaking the glass ceiling and developing positive harmonious relationships between men and women in the workplace and finding a way to win the race of life when the world is convinced you are the underdog.
