    1. "Speaking Up" on September 26-
        Co-presented by the Center for Faculty Development and the Office for Women's Careers

    Seminar for MGH faculty with HMS academic appointments.

    Would you like your ideas to get more recognition? Would you like to have more influence within your team? Would you assert yourself more, if you could do so without damaging relationships? Are you a great advocate for others, but not as good at meeting your own interests?

    Speaking up clearly and effectively is a critical leadership skill. In this fun and interactive session, common roadblocks to effective assertion will be examined and a menu of options to help professionals speak up more effectively will be offered.

    Facilitator: Debbie Goldstein, JD, Lecturer, Tufts University School of Medicine;
                    Principal and Managing Director, Triad Consulting Group
                    Gillien Todd, JD, Lecturer on Law, Harvard Law School;
                    Consultant, Triad Consulting Group
    Date: Thursday, September 26, 2013
    Time: noon to 2 pm
    Location will be sent upon registration.
