October 2022



ICAA Virtual Fall Power Hour Workshop!

Wednesday, December 7 at Noon, EST, one hour
Via Zoom

Here is little about our exciting presentation:

How aware are we of our circles of influence? We recommend pet groomers, movies and dining establishments to friends; we give “suggestions” to our children, parents, employees; and we make decisions and provide input on matters in our careers and communities constantly. While the boundaries for spreading influence seem to be limitless, what messages are we sending? How can we be more mindful in our communication? This session will focus on becoming intentional leaders through effective communication, optimism, and positive perspective. Intentional leadership involves being conscious of the types of influence we have and can grow, how and when to utilize our influence, and how our own values, beliefs, and programming affect our communication and ultimately our leadership styles. In this session, we will be discussing ways in which all of this plus an optimistic outlook and positive perspective enhance our ability to become intentional leaders.
