Authentic Leadership Series


How to Ask for What You Want... And Get It!


Surprisingly, many people – leaders, managers, and business owners – know what they want of others, yet the request they make is either too fast, unclear, or indirect. This is particularly true for women, many of whom equate “direct” with “not nice.” In this workshop, you will learn the importance of making clear, direct requests so that the right things get done. You will also learn how to communicate your requests so they are clearly understood by the recipient, and how to clarify vague or indirect requests that you receive from others. Lastly, you will have the opportunity to practice making clear requests.

Presenter: Laurie Zuckerman
