She Did What She Came For
My client, a young woman of 22, is currently completing International Studies at a Melbourne university. Celine's focus is eventually applying and working for foreign affairs for the Australian government. Her goal in contacting Auersmont was to develop her soft social skills and build her is professional presence. What were her challenges?
What was Celine's challenge?
Lets say her name is Celine*(my client wants to remain anonymous). Celine told me her challenges were anxiety and wanting to know more about presenting as a professional, as she felt there was more to learn. She expressed her desire to know what others knew, so her could be more comfortable and relaxed in official and social capacity. What was Auersmont's solution for Celine?
What was Auersmont approach for Celine?
It was a two pronged approach: we used the professional image in business and being the best version of yourself. This helped her to see what, why and when to network, introducing herself and introducing others, what to wear to business events, tips in using and remembering people's names, understanding body language and sending the right business communications. What were the results for Celine?
Celine some time later told me that she enjoyed her programs and said now she is more productive and confident at work and with other staff. Understanding the finer details of a professional presence and avoiding those awkward moments socially has helped her to level up and move to her long term goals.
"This course was just what I needed. It put me at ease knowing what the expectations of a business professional and what a social presence meant. You put me at ease and understood what I needed. I accomplished so much." - Celine B.
