    Jan. 24, 2023 – Session 2: Professional Demeanor
    Based on the groundbreaking work of author and revealed leadership expert Dale Carnegie, this seminar aims to help employees project a professional demeanor, stand out from the crowd, get noticed, and get promoted.

    Feb. 7, 2023 – Session 3: Public Speaking
    This session again will channel the methods of Carnegie to help employees become confident, well-spoken presenters.

    The last seminar will show attendees how to transition from employee and contributor to supervisor and leader.
