EDI’s "Be Inspired" series Presents: Dynamic Speaker Carla Harris - Tools for Maximizing Your Success

As part of EDI’s "Be Inspired" series, we aim to highlight remarkable women who continue to defy the odds, shatter glass ceilings, and influence others to maximize their potential.

We are delighted to host dynamic speaker, Carla Harris - Morgan Stanley’s Vice Chairman, Global Wealth Management and Senior Client Advisor, as she shares her "Tools for Maximizing Your Success."

As a respected thought leader and author, Carla has shared her professional tools on several television shows including the Today Show, Kathy & Hoda with strategies on how to “win” in the workplace. She was also recently featured on CNBC discussing the importance of diversity in business. Carla’s extensive list of accomplishments include; Magna Cum Laude Harvard Business School Alum, the Chairman of a leading global financial organization, the accomplished author of “Strategize to Win”, as well gifted Carnegie Hall gospel singer. Notably, in 2013, President Barack Obama appointed Carla as the Chair to the National Women’s Business Council.

Carla’s engaging and powerful teaching provides practical and insightful advice on communication strategies, bouncing back after a misstep, and building up “relationship currency”. If you are thinking about repositioning yourself in the work place, whether new in your career, looking to move up or move on, or somewhere in between, most professionals will be able to find something of value in her talk.

Some key points to be addressed will be:

  • Understanding the difference between advisors, mentors, and sponsors
  • Owning your power
  • Facing your fears
  • Becoming a more confident leader
  • What it means to have performance and relationship currency

EDI hopes "Carla’s Pearls" will encourage you to "Be Inspired" as we welcome her September 7th at 10:00 am in Building 10, Lipsett Auditorium, or watch live at videocast.nih.gov.
