Megan Cleghorn, JD, MBA is the President of Cleghorn Performance Elevation LLC (“CPE”), a private-client, leadership development, executive coaching and communication consultancy, servicing organizations internationally in numerous industries. Megan marries her many years of operational and financial expertise with her passion for empowering leaders with the insights and behavioral skills to position themselves and their teams for optimal performance. Previously, Megan served as CEO of Request For Relief LLC (“RFR”), a national organizational-wellness consultancy dedicated to increasing resilience and enhancing performance in high stress work environments. Prior to leading CPE and RFR, Megan spent nearly fourteen years at the premier global law firm, Skadden, Arps LLP, as a corporate restructuring attorney, advising companies in distressed situations on navigating transformational change legally, operationally, financially and structurally. Currently, Megan speaks internationally on many leadership topics, including Transformational Change, Leadership Empowerment, Advancement of Female Leaders, EQ As Table Stakes and Inclusivity As A Corporate Imperative. Megan is also an instructor in the MBA Program at The Wharton School of Business at the University of Pennsylvania where she teaches on topics of Advanced Persuasion, Executive Communication and Crisis Communication. Megan obtained her B.S. and her J.D. at Duquesne University in Pittsburgh, PA and her M.B.A. at The Wharton School of Business at the University of Pennsylvania. To give you a glimpse into her perspective and passions: Although Megan has lost her affinity for refrigerator magnets, she nevertheless keeps one prominently featured front and center that cultivates a mindset of courage – a quote by Eleanor Roosevelt: “Do One Thing Every Day That Scares You.” And to enrich the soil from which all of her relationships grow, she heeds the wisdom reflected on her desktop plaque: “Take care of your thoughts when you are alone and take care of your words when you are with people.”

Professional confidence is not a fixed destination but rather an ongoing dynamic journey of development. As your trust in your own capacity grows, so does your confidence, resulting in a noticeable decline in self-doubt and performance fear. The standard to which you hold yourself and your own perception of your personal brand fuel your professional confidence. For many of us, those standards and those self-perceptions warrant reexamination and refreshing. Participants will: ● Conduct an honest self-assessment of your professional confidence. ● Reorient your perception of your skills and abilities; redefine your professional identity and brand; and quiet your self-doubt. ● Embrace challenges despite your reticence. ● Hold yourself to increasingly higher standards (reorienting a perfectionist orientation). ● Understand your value and identify your individual strategic differentiators - shifting from "how do I compare" to "how do my unique talents position me to add value."
