Do you ever say yes to a project you don’t have time for because you’re worried that others might be mad if you say no? Or wonder if traditionally female strengths like relationship-building and compassion will serve you in leadership? How important is it to be perceived as likable anyway, vs. confident, creative, passionate, intelligent and inspiring?

Leadership Coach Jennifer Davis, along with industry leaders Shelly Bayne and Andrea Jomides, will help you explore how you can step away from the desire to be “liked” and into your most powerful, confident self.

Join us for WICT NY’s Let’s Talk Tuesday and learn new tools for amplifying personal growth, increasing professional impact, and connecting with your inner Super Hero.


Jennifer Davis likes to introduce women to themselves at their absolute best: strong, smart, empowered, and ready to take their lives and careers by storm. She’s a (mostly) recovered perfectionist whose passion is connecting highly ambitious people to the awareness, motivation and energy to become even more amazing than they already are.

Jennifer has helped many individuals and groups—from entrepreneurs to Fortune 500 executives to attorneys to architects to artists to coaches—find the inspiration to achieve meaningful personal growth. Her areas of specialty include maximizing leadership effectiveness, building resilience and inner strength, improving work relationships and productivity, and attaining inner
peace through mindfulness, emotional processing, and energy work.

Jennifer received an MBA from the Stanford Graduate School of Business (where she’s on the alumni preferred executive coach registry), a BA from Tufts University and trained at the Coaches Training Institute. She is certified as an ACC, CPCC, and as a practitioner for The Leadership Circle Profile 360 Assessment and Leadership Culture Survey. She also provides pro
bono coaching for United Nations executives and works with several start-ups who are bringing executive coaching to all levels of the organization. Her core values of authenticity, creativity and fun are always at play in her work, and she loves dance parties.
