Taking the Stage Seminar. Taking the Stage® is a course developed specifically to provide women with communication skills that they can put to immediate use to increase their effectiveness in their careers. Women are participating in the professions in increasing numbers, but are often not seen as leaders. That's because they have been taught to listen and respond, rather than to take the stage and speak so others listen and follow them. This intensive one-day seminar will show you how to be recognized for your views. You will learn how to develop a clear message, create a persuasive structure, and communicate it in a way that allows you to be heard the first time you speak. In the seminar, we will also look at physical presence. You will learn to be aware of your physical presence and what it is saying to others. Through a series of exercises, you will learn to project a confident presence that engages and inspires your audience, no matter how large or how small.
