In the new year, NAWBO Richmond will continue its "How She Built It" series featuring NAWBO Richmond member Dr. Natasha Knight, owner of Taking It Pro and recent Women of Excellence 2020 "Student Entrepreneur of the Year" winner. Natasha recently co-founded Taking It Pro LLC, a career and professional development services firm focused on helping women of color be energized, bold, and relentless in achieving career success on their own terms. She is a certified YouMap® coach and uses that framework to help women discover and learn how to talk about their strengths in a way that helps them create successful and fulfilling careers. Natasha is also a social scientist at Altria, where she provides public health expertise for underage tobacco prevention initiatives and scientific advocacy activities. We will learn about our fellow NAWBO Richmond member and her journey as a researcher, author, and multi-passionate entrepreneur. Thereafter, members will be led through a discussion to network and learn about each other’s challenges in the same capacity.
***This is a members only event***
Love to read or want to socialize with others about great books? Then this opportunity is for you. Get inspired and expand your knowledge on business-related topics while also meeting and learning from other NAWBO members via our brand new book club!
We'll be reading books written by female authors, then gather to virtually discuss and share our own insights and related stories. We'll meet for book discussions every 6 weeks or so, and there is no commitment to being part of the club. Simply pop in and participate whenever the book topic or the timing works for you.
This month's book is Captivate: The Science of Succeeding with People by Vanessa Van Edwards.
Do you feel awkward at networking events? Do you wonder what your date really thinks of you? Do you wish you could decode people? You need to learn the science of people.
As a human behavior hacker, Vanessa Van Edwards created a research lab to study the hidden forces that drive us. And she’s cracked the code. In Captivate, she shares shortcuts, systems, and secrets for taking charge of your interactions at work, at home, and in any social situation. These aren’t the people skills you learned in school. This is the first comprehensive, science backed, real life manual on how to captivate anyone—and a completely new approach to building connections.
Just like knowing the formulas to use in a chemistry lab, or the right programming language to build an app, Captivate provides simple ways to solve people problems. You’ll learn, for example…
· How to work a room: Every party, networking event, and social situation has a predictable map. Discover the sweet spot for making the most connections.
· How to read faces: It’s easier than you think to speed-read facial expressions and use them to predict people’s emotions.
· How to talk to anyone: Every conversation can be memorable—once you learn how certain words generate the pleasure hormone dopamine in listeners.
When you understand the laws of human behavior, your influence, impact, and income will increase significantly. What’s more, you will improve your interpersonal intelligence, make a killer first impression, and build rapport quickly and authentically in any situation—negotiations, interviews, parties, and pitches. You’ll never interact the same way again.
