Ellevate Boulder's Press Play Series: TEDx Talk, Don't Let Your Words Sabotage Your Career

Online • Boulder

Press Play: A monthly series designed to help you press play in a paused world. Join us to hear Boulder Ellevate President, Julie Holunga, speak about the words we use which undermine our careers.


Wed, May 19, 2021 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM MDT


We cannot sustain a positive professional image when we use weak language. Weak language plants seeds of doubt in the minds of others regarding our leadership, authority, and capability. However, when we are deliberate and strategic with our words and our tone, we align our intentions with our impact, becoming professionals of influence and unquestioned authority. In this talk, you will learn 3 tactics to communicate powerfully. 

Ellevate Boulder President, Julie Holunga, is a leadership trainer and coach developing professionals to lead with authority and influence, with an expertise in the careers of female leaders. Her focus is in the professional services industries, honing skills leaders didn’t previously learn in school. 

This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community.
