Publisher's Summary

Many women today wonder: What will it take to get that seat at the boardroom table? Earn that coveted promotion? Or simply have their voices heard? Taking the Stage provides a comprehensive, proven approach that enables women to come forward into the spotlight and speak up, stand out, and succeed. Based on a program from the Humphrey Group that has been delivered to over 400,000 women worldwide, Taking the Stage shows women - no matter their age, rank, or profession - how to communicate with courage and confidence in every situation, from formal speeches to brief hallway conversations. Judith Humphrey provides the inspiration and practical advice for women to “take the stage” mentally, verbally, vocally, and physically. Women can make the most of every opportunity by understanding how best to:

  • Speak up confidently, even when others don’t agree
  • Convey their accomplishments without self-doubt
  • Be assertive but not aggressive
  • Deliver clear and convincing messages
  • Move beyond “minimizing” language and apology
  • Find their own powerful and authentic voice
  • Achieve confident body language and a leadership presence

By applying these techniques and others to every communication - whether making a presentation, speaking at meetings, conducting an elevator conversation, or selling themselves in job interviews - women will be recognized as the leaders they are and attain positions of influence. For women at all stages of their career, and for managers and executives committed to supporting and guiding women on their leadership journeys, Taking the Stage is the practical, broad-based solution that will allow women to speak up confidently, gain respect, earn the promotions they deserve, and secure their places at the boardroom table.
