As a featured panelist at the Connected Women of Influence (CWI) CEO / Executive Panel Forum, I was asked to speak and share my views on the topic of Charisma: The “It” Factor, Who Has It, Who Doesn't and Why You Should Want This in Your Business. http://youtu.be/_mIuOH50v-4 In this post-CEO Panel Forum video, I share some highlights and lowlights of Charisma and Charisma killers. While I am an expert in the art of Personal Brand and Brand Management; we’ve all made mistakes and here I dish on myself---total candor and I hope other women don't make this mistake. I talk about the impact of your personal brand, reputation and how to gain credibility after a poor first impression. - The Definition of Charisma - Who Has It and Who Doesn’t - How You Dress Impacts Your Personal Brand - Mistakes Women Make and How to Avoid Them - The Art of Being a Great Listener - Creating Your Personal Brand - First Impressions - Executive Women
Several weeks ago I was the keynote speaker at the Commercial Real Estate Women (CREW) Board Retreat. These wildly savvy executive women were on fire and were there to step up their game! No subjects were off limits and beyond the laughter, we had some important dialogue that every woman in the business world needs to know. In the video below, you will see that our time together sparked an entirely new video series that is fun, funny and most definitely candid. My presentation covered these hot topics: Cleavage - How and When or EVER! Employee Dress Codes and Ramifications of Not Following Company Dress Code Policies Feeling too Tall or too Petite When Working with Men Body Language and How it can Work for or Against You The Art of Eye Contact How to Go From the Board Room to a Construction Site and Still Look Professional Age Appropriate Hair Length - When to Cut or Not to Cut Accessories Being an Asset or Distraction If you would like to hire Melissa to speak at your upcoming event, click here.
