Ms Moxxie - A Professional Development Program
All Year 1 Ms Moxxie groups have the same curriculum. Each group meets once every three weeks
from 8:00 AM to 9:30 AM. The groups are led by two trained co-mentors who oversee the workshops with 5-10 professional women in their 20's and early 30's. Membership in the group also includes a free full membership into Moxxie Network ($325 value).
Year 1 Curriculum
Month 1 - Getting to Know You — Professional Bio
An introduction of the program will include writing a professional bio and sharing what we hope to get out of the program.
Month 2 - The Art of Networking
Networking has become a critical element for growing a career and/or business. Many are intimidated and challenged with how to make networking a productive effort. In this session, we work with the Mentees to design their own custom commercial and teach effective networking practices.
Month 3 - Understanding and Working with Different Personalities
Understanding how “you are wired’ and what makes others respond to your conversations and actions is a critical skill in the work environment. We examine your personality and provide insight into why some interactions are successful and others struggle, and what you can do about it to insure that an interaction will proceed smoothly.
Month 4 – Attentive Listening
Attentive listening involves listening with all senses. As well as giving full attention to the speaker, it is important that the 'active listener' is also 'seen' to be listening. Learn how to be an active, attentive and reflective listener.
Month 5 - Difficult Conversations
Everyone deals with difficult conversations – whether it's negotiating for a raise, requesting a promotion, resigning your position, or just dealing with a difficult peer or manager. We discuss various scenarios and how to manage those conversations for better outcomes.
Month 6 - Nego-SHE-ate Your Worth — Role Playing Your Way to the Top!
Women are notoriously deficient in this skill. During this workshop we role-play in order to see how we react to certain negotiating tactics, and how to develop a few of our own.
Month 7 — Stand & Deliver: Define and Refine Your Presentation Skills
Every successful professional has to make a presentation at some time in their careers. We take some of the fear out by practicing our skills in front of each other, and then giving and taking friendly critiques.
Workshop 8 - Personal Branding
The term branding has long been relegated to companies, but today almost every individual has a personal brand. Not many of us have consciously cultivated these brands, but they exist nonetheless. Learn how to brand yourself in a positive, professional way,
Workshop 9 -Leadership
There are so many characteristics of leadership - but not all great leaders encompass them all. Learn which traits you can cultivate within yourself so others view you as a leader.

Year 2 Curriculum
This program is very different than Year 1. Each workshop focuses on one specific mentee who is asked to present her long and short-term personal and professional goals. The group discusses the goals and assists that individual mentee on how best to achieve her goals. By helping your fellow mentees, you will develop problem-solving skills, strategic thinking and goal-setting abilities for yourself.
You must complete Year 1 before advancing to Year 2.
Year 3 Curriculum
This year is a combination of workshops and mentoring. We will provide industry-expert guest speakers as well as joint events with our Jr Moxxie college mentees where the Ms Moxxie mentees will act big sisters in business.
You must complete Year 2 before advancing to Year 3.
