Human Resources Presents Sharí Alexander as Administrative Professionals’ Day Keynote Speaker


In recognition of Administrative Professionals’ Day, Human Resources’ Training and Development is sponsoring persuasiveness coach and speaker Sharí Alexander, who will present “Your Influential Personality Type: How to Be More Persuasive with the People Around You” at 1:30 p.m. Wednesday, April 25, in Glenn Auditorium of Robert A. Dempster Hall.

Have you ever wondered why some people seem to “click” with your ideas, while others just don’t seem to “get it?” Have you ever been confused by how someone falls in love with an idea that you think is terrible? In this presentation, Alexander will present the four different “Influential Personality Types,” including each type’s unique communication style, how to spot the four different types, and how to identify your influential strengths and areas of improvement.

Alexander will also share key phrases that can improve a person’s influential powers with all the “Influential Personality Types.” Participants will learn how to use subtle shifts to incorporate to make their next idea more compelling during a presentation, leading a meeting or talking with a key colleague.

Alexander has made it her mission to bring the “dark arts” of influence into the light. After studying from the world’s best influencers, CIA agents, hostage negotiators, con artists and more, she now teaches positive persuasive tactics to help leaders become the type of person people enjoy following. Her clients include chief operating officers, politicians, professional athletes (NFL, NBA), television and movie producers, news commentators (ESPN, HLN, NBC), and New York Times Bestselling authors. Alexander is also a contributor for Entrepreneur magazine and guest lecturer at the University of Southern California.
