Maintain Your Place at the Table

 

I've been speaking to a number of Human Resources professionals groups lately and sharing my speech: How Does HR Get A Respected Seat at the Strategic Planning Table? As I contemplated what to blog about today, I thought I'd keep it simple and share advice from my book Don't Let 'Em Treat You Like a Girl®: A Woman's Guide to Leadership Success that links to ideas shared in my speech. In a nutshell, if you're at the table: Demonstrate you belong at the table!

Confidence is the ability to take a stance and defend a position. To be able to project confidence:

  • Convince, don't cave: Confidence resides in those who show conviction and "sell" their ideas rather than backing away from them when challenged.
  • Don't explain. Don't defend: When you make a decision and you're willing to "bet the farm," go with it. You don't have to defend your views every time you're challenged.
  • Realize confidence doesn't equate to witchiness - and if people call you a witch - so what.

When people resort to name-calling, it's usually because you've backed them into a corner and they don't have solid information to get themselves out.
