Relying on 20 years of research, Cara Hale Alter has a deep understanding of how nonverbal communication shapes the perception of leadership presence. She literally wrote the book on projecting credibility and confidence: the critically acclaimed The Credibility Code. In workshops, she’s known for delivering precision feedback with warmth and humor. On stage, she’s an energetic and compelling presenter, having won numerous national awards for public speaking.
As founder and president of SpeechSkills, Cara has provided training to some of the world’s best-known companies, including Allianz, Caterpillar, eBay, Gap Inc., Google, IDEO, and Williams-Sonoma. A guest lecturer at UC Berkeley, Harvard University, Stanford University, and UC Hastings College of Law, Cara has also worked with numerous top-100 law firms, including DLA Piper, Morgan Lewis, O’Melveny & Myers, and White & Case. She is a frequent media resource, appearing in Forbes.com, The Globe and Mail, USA Today, and countless other media outlets.
With a BA in speech communication and an MFA in theatre, Cara’s early career includes professional work as a voice-over artist and commercial actress. However, perhaps her best preparation for a career as a keynote speaker has been her years spent as a camp counselor for the YMCA.
Cara lives with her husband and two children in San Francisco. Her other loves include yoga, dance, and a good game of charades.
Giving and Receiving Feedback
Using feedback to create strong working relationships
Feedback is a vital component for growth. When delivered safely and with candor, feedback improves performance, builds stronger relationships, and increases collaboration. This workshop expands the concept of feedback from quarterly reviews to an accessible daily tool. We’ve gathered keystone ideas that can be easily applied in both formal and informal settings so that you can deliver, ask for, and receive feedback that is helpful and actionable.
The Credibility Code
Credibility. Leadership presence. Personal power. We know these qualities when we see them, but what are the cues that lead us to these impressions? In her signature presentation, Cara Hale Alter deconstructs what it takes to carry yourself like a leader. Using the criteria laid out in her book The Credibility Code, she emphasizes the power of the “sub-textual” conversation and identifies the specific “codes of conduct”—for posture, gestures, vocal skills, eye contact, and more—that influence the perception of credibility. Individually, these behaviors are easy to implement; together they form a skill set that can transform your career.
