Maximize Your Seat at the Table with Kim Meninger

A wise woman once said, “What difference does it make if you have a seat at the table if you don’t effectively use it?” The literal and proverbial “seat at the table” represents your ability to have a voice in your organization and successfully influence others.

Some women struggle to get to the table. Others experience challenges maximizing their seat when they get there. To expand your influence, make a bigger impact and more effectively achieve your professional goals, you need to make your voice heard. As women, however, many of us struggle to find our voices in the workplace.

With increased confidence, communication skill, and political savvy, you can maximize your seat at the table.

  • Examine key internal and external challenges facing women as they strive to make their voices heard.
  • Explore how to maximize your influence before, during and after presenting your ideas.
  • Discuss actionable strategies to boost your confidence and improve your leadership presence as you engage with others.
