What if every day could be easier?

You are faced with challenging situations every day from communication and relationship issues to conflict and change management. What if every day could be easier? It can be. Simply start here.

Elevating Your Professional Presence is a deep dive into developing your leadership skills. We first heighten your self-awareness, followed by application in your firm. We explore your natural style and develop understanding how to advance change. Additional modules uncover your core values and examine your emotional intelligence.

Here’s what people are saying about Elevate Your Professional Presence:

“Judy has the ability to continue to stretch the thoughts of a seasoned administrator. She teaches relevant, forward thinking subjects in an engaging manner.”

“Many of us, like me, have never had a mentor and this is a good way to obtain some of the benefits without the mentor.”

“The exercise and particularly the individual homework assignments helped me to better understand my personal style and identify where I needed to make changes. The personal coaching sessions were eye opening and extremely effective.”

“This course really made me think about what I am doing and how I am doing it. I gained some insight into things I need to do differently and how to approach them. Having a partner for homework really makes me responsible for keeping up my end of the bargain.”
