Product description

From the Inside Flap

Based on a program from the Humphrey Group that has been delivered to over 400,000 women worldwide, Taking the Stage shows women—no matter their age, rank, or profession—how to communicate with courage and confidence in every situation, from formal speeches to brief hallway conversations. Judith Humphrey provides the inspiration and practical advice for women to "take the stage" mentally, verbally, vocally, and physically. Women can make the most of every opportunity by understanding how best to:

  • Speak up confidently, even when others don't agree
  • Convey their accomplishments without self-doubt
  • Be assertive but not aggressive
  • Deliver clear and convincing messages
  • Move beyond "minimizing" language and apology
  • Find their own powerful and authentic voice
  • Achieve confident body language and a leadership presence

By applying these techniques and others to every communication—whether making a presentation, speaking at meetings, engaging in an elevator conversation, or selling themselves in job interviews—women will be recognized as the leaders they are and attain positions of influence.

For women at all stages of their career, and for managers and executives committed to supporting and guiding women on their leadership journeys, Taking the Stage is the practical, broad-based solution that will allow women to speak up confidently, gain respect, earn the promotions they deserve, and secure their places at the boardroom table.

From the Back Cover

Praise for Taking the Stage

"Speaking with strength and confidence is a vital skill for both men and women. Judith Humphrey's book, Taking the Stage, is a must-read for women who wish to achieve this goal."
—Elyse Allan, president and CEO, GE Canada

"Judith Humphrey puts forward important ideas that are necessary for women's advancement, and Taking the Stage includes a set of clear guidelines for individual change. This is a welcome first step in the shift from a 'fitting in' male model to an 'organizational fit,' male-and-female model where both leadership styles are valued and rewarded."
—Judy B. Rosener, professor emerita, Paul Merage School of Business, UC Irvine, and author, America's Competitive Secret: Women Managers

"Taking the Stage focuses on one of the most significant skills women can have: the ability to project a strong, clear, and compelling voice. I have found in my career that this ability to speak up confidently, clearly, and with substance has been a defining quality for those who get ahead—both women and men. Judith Humphrey presents a template for doing so."
—Sue Spradley, senior vice president and general manager, network and service enablement, JDSU

"I have brought Judith Humphrey's brilliant program 'Taking the Stage' into three companies on five continents. The results have been extraordinary. Women all over the world have discovered—as readers will—how to express themselves with courage and confidence, whether on the shop floor or in the executive suite."
—Kate Bishop, executive vice president, HR (Europe), CEVA Logistics

"Finally—a book that shows women how to communicate powerfully, persuasively, and with presence. Women at TD have benefited tremendously from the program that inspired Taking the Stage."
—Grace Palombo, executive vice president and head of HR, TD Bank, and member, Catalyst US Advisory Board

"If you manage a business and wish to support women in their pursuit of a successful career, Taking the Stage is an important read. I have seen women come back from the 'Taking the Stage' program and be considerably more confident speaking in front of their peers."
—John Montalbano, CEO, RBC Global Asset Management
