Many women apologize incessantly. In fact, we apologize far more than men do and we apologize for things that aren’t our fault and for things over which we have no control. Frequent and reflexive apologies build one of two perceptions: you truly are a sorry character because you mess things up so often or you have delusions of grandeur and think you are in charge of everything. Not good. Not powerful. Not true. Learn when an apology is due and how to replace the automatic “I’m sorry” with words that improve and reinforce your standing in the workplace.
This presentation will be a guided conversation that invites, but does not require, the audience participation. Handouts will include 1-3 supplemental reading selections and a self-assessment tool.
