The Science of Being a Superhero
All of us have various titles including functional titles, i.e. CEO, Business Owner, etc., but are those the only defining qualities we have? What superpowers do we possess that we need to capitalize on? By focusing on our strengths (and not on our weaknesses) we can better be prepared to market ourselves to potential clients, our advocates, and other key influencers. During this interactive presentation, attendees will learn how to define their superpowers others see that they don’t.
