The Confidence Myth

Supported by in-depth interviews and survey responses from more than 500 women, Helene Lerner makes important observations about women and confidence — key among them that women need to shift their thinking about the role of confidence. Too many women feel they need to have additional skills in place and be more confident in their abilities before venturing out. Real confidence is moving forward when you think you can make a difference, even with shaky knees.

Lerner will offer viewers practical strategies for crushing the confidence myth and supporting their efforts to reach even bigger goals NOW.

Who should attend: HR practitioners involved in diversity and inclusion and women's leadership development issues, along with any professional seeking new career opportunities.
