Damaging Phrases Women Use In The Office

Presenter: Elizabeth Lions
Date: 24 March 2017


IEEE-USA is proud to present a two-part presentation from Elizabeth Lions, specializing in women's professional development topics. Women in technical fields often long for solid advice around the topics of negotiations, how to navigate office politics and how to get noticed in all the right ways to get a promotion. For a women in a male-dominated industry or field like engineering or IT, the office can be a maze.

Elizabeth has coached women that were stuck and unable to get a promotion or who had lost credibility. This presentation covers the things you should never say as a women in a male-dominated field, while teaching how to connect with others in the office. It will teach you how to take a stressful situation and turn it into a powerful learning situation without wrecking your career.

All of Elizabeth's presentations welcome both women and men and are in no way exclusive.

About the Presenter

Prior to becoming an author, professional speaker and coach, Elizabeth started her career as a headhunter on the west coast, where she had the pleasure of working with corporate leaders at companies like IBM, Microsoft, Wells Fargo, EBay, and Intel, to name a few. It was during those private meetings in conference rooms that she was privy to who would be laid off and who would be hired. Little did she know that years later some of those same people would return and go through her job-seeking and leadership programs.

When she isn't working, Elizabeth can be found traveling across state lines with her husband on their Harley Davidson motorcycle, or in the yoga studio twisting for hours on end.
