I think working women in all stages of their career from entry level to senior executives could benefit from Monique's message.

Monique Tallon provided our recent record-setting Groundbreaking Women in Construction conference with a compelling and enthusiastically delivered presentation that resonated with our nearly 400 attendees to find that “inner cheerleader”in building needed career confidence in an often challenging industry environment. Monique indeed showed GWIC conferees, by her own example, how to “lead gracefully.”

I knew the workshops Monique led were effective when we got feedback from the members that they were practicing the Feminine Leadership Model she introduced and they were feeling more authentic, centered, and respected in their groups at work. She brought out the best in our group and her leadership has helped many women in sustainability, construction, and design. She gives great real-life examples and connects to her audience deeply."

The techniques and philosophy as captured in her amazing book, Leading Gracefully, applies to women in all lines of work and careers but I found her catching the ear of the women in the audience who are mid-career level wanting to get ahead or a promotion, but are lacking the self-confidence and leadership skills necessary to get there. Almost everyone in the audience left with a copy of her book.

“Monique was invited to speak on Leading Gracefully at the annual Texas Library Association Conference at the Henry B. Gonzalez Conference Center in San Antonio, Texas on April 20, 2017.

The Leading Gracefully program, and her book on the topic, provided an insightful and knowledgeable approach to authentic leadership for women. The audience was engaged, responsive and enthusiastic to hear about the feminine leadership model, which she developed. In a field where women are in the majority, many librarians are reaching out for a modern leadership model which allows them to utilize their natural strengths. Monique’s seminar revealed that the skills women bring to leadership are in demand and she provided a balanced and complimentary approach to developing a whole-self leadership style. She is a warm, funny and insightful speaker and her program is highly recommended to anyone who wants to learn to be a better leader.”
