Gravitas has become the newest “it” factor in separating oneself from the pack. People with gravitas stand up, stand out and simply STAND when others may crumble or hide. 

As you take stock of your professional brand, ask yourself, “do people take me seriously or do I sabotage myself?” Do you need to bump-up your “cred” in order to move things forward in your professional life? 

On Wednesday, May 31 at 1pm ET #WorkTrends host Meghan M. Biro and special guest Deborah Thomas will be discussing what distinguishes someone with gravitas from someone who lacks it.

Here are a few key points Shane shared:
<ul>

</ul>
