Expert Best Practices from the Career Growth Track at HR Virtual Summit

HR Virtual Summit was two days filled with incredible insights and advice from speakers around the globe. In the Career Growth track, registrants were treated to guidance on personal development, tips for speaking more effectively, and recommendations for career growth.

Check out some of the learnings from the HRVS Career Growth sessions:

Effective leaders use verbal and non-verbal communication skills

In her session, Walk That Walk and Talk That Talk: What the Most Confident Leaders Say and Do, Bridgett McGowen, an award-winning international professional speaker, shared four critical pillars of communication that effective leaders know how to use. These pillars help leaders do as Bridgett’s session’s title—walk the walk and talk the talk.

“How you sound sends a message to people,” and she explained the effect of tone. “When your pitch is too high, you can sound nervous. If your voice is too low, you might sound bored or disinterested.”
