CR303: Quit apologizing, justifying, and over-explaining!

11:30 am - 12:30 pm
Hyatt Orlando Ballroom L

Objective: Guidance
Audience Level: Mid-career
Session Type: Workshop

In this session, identical twins Josie and Laurel will reveal why women can hold themselves back, by constantly apologizing, justifying, or over-explaining. This is usually because they are concerned about offending or being pushy. The audience will learn how widespread and damaging this is, how much they do it personally, and how they can increase their impact without sounding rude.
