In the past decade, the changes in the workplace have been nothing short of radical:
An economic boom . . . and then, a major downturn.
The worldwide adoption of internet technologies. . . and then, the world wide web's reinvention with Web 2.0 in less than a decade.
Mergers and acquisitions.
The explosion of outsourcing.
Downsizing & rightsizing.
The reduction or elimination of retirement funds.
The vast array of definitions of "business casual" and its (mis)application on Fridays.
Additionally, for the first time, we have the presence of FOUR generations in the workplace, representing a full spectrum of paradigms. Each age group comes with its own expectations, strengths, qualities, and challenges.
Now more than ever, companies are recognizing the need to invest in the grooming and retention of their top talent. With the day-to-day changes, the generational differences amid employees, and the need to be able to deliver and relate, both virtually and in person, relationship management skills boost ROI.
And perhaps you have noticed that we are in the midst of a revival. Professionals everywhere are starting to put a premium on developing a polished executive presence. The high standards of acumen, etiquette, and conversation are being looked at more closely. We are already seeing it: Professionals who demonstrate these skills are in demand and the trend is just beginning. Today, we need much more than our technical skills to get noticed and move ahead . . . it's all about building and strengthening successful relationships, expanding our networks, and ultimately re-inventing ourselves.
At Pur*sue, we call it relationship management. Your visual presentation, handshake, demeanor, confidence, interpersonal communications, and personal branding are just a few of the elements that form an impression on those you interact with. They are a few of the foundational elements in your relationship management toolkit, and we dig far deeper.
EVERYONE can learn to develop an executive presence that will have employees and management at their professional best in business and social settings.
Executive presence becomes second nature through coaching, mentoring, practice, and role-play. Pur*sue will guide you in decoding the elements of relationship management.
Pur*sue partners with professionals like you to drive the revolution of relationship management.
As a professional development trainer and career coach, I routinely refer clients to Susan because of her ability to help people transform in two important areas: executive presence and working relationships. Whenever I meet a client who is dealing with difficult personalities at work, I always refer them to Susan for coaching and guidance. She is one of those rare coaches who can give you the un-sugarcoated truth in a way that leaves you feeling grateful for her honesty, candor, and insight. More importantly, you leave feeling empowered to make whatever changes she recommends.
