Moving Up the Career Ladder: 3 Skills to Stand-Out & Get Promoted

Join SOM Yale Alumni and YaleWomen for an interactive workshop with networking to help you stand out and catapult your career. Master the skills to skyrocket your influence and project executive presence in the workplace

The SOM Yale Alumni, YaleWomen of Northern California, and YCSF invite you to an engaging & highly interactive workshop designed to catapult your career.

Your next promotion isn’t going to be about you; it’s going to be about what you inspire in others. Join Jo Ilfeld, (YC '96) for a refreshing and frank workshop about the leadership skills you need to use for your next promotion - even if you’re in or have gone to business school.
Have you ever wondered why certain people stand-out and are on everyone’s radar? There’s one skill that gets talked about in corporate circles more than anything else. A skill that separates individual contributors from the influencers and impact players. A skill that sets top performers apart from the pack. And that skill is leadership.
But the truth is, there’s no such thing as leadership -- it’s actually a collection of skills, relationships, and abilities a person needs to rise up the ranks in their organization.
There’s just one catch. A person working alone--even if they work hard-- is not a leader. Leaders rise to the top because they know how to confidently and effectively influence other people -- whether they are direct reports, collaborators, or bosses. The good news is, this can be learned.
Here’s what you’ll learn:

  • The simple key to quickly build influence that produces stellar results
  • The most common communication mistake that people make -- and what to do instead so things go your way (no matter what)
  • How to achieve the outcome you want at ANY meeting without coming off as an unlikeable -- or a know it all
  • The importance of mastering executive presence and how to use subtle body language cues to your advantage no matter the situation
  • and so much more…

You’ll walk away from this workshop with practical strategies to use right away to shift the way colleagues, managers and direct reports respond to you. You’ll understand how to quickly build influence and master the subtle signals of executive presence. You’ll leave with how-to strategies for creating and standing-out on strong, high-performing teams. Structured networking is incorporated into the workshop so you’ll leave with some great new Yale & Yelp connections.


  • Wed Nov 11, 6:15pm - 8:15pm
  • Yelp HQ, 140 Montgomery Street, San Francisco, CA 94105
