“The ABCs of Leadership” Jim Carty July 18th
Leadership – the art of guiding or directing people to perform at a higher level of excellence than they would on their own. While distilling leadership down to a few letters or words may seem improbable, once you understand the ABCs you will never lead in the same direction again.

Learn / Practice

Come and see how much fun learning to speak in public can be. Sure it can be hard – we all want to be perfect each time we speak and it doesn’t always work out like that.

By learning and practicing to effectively formulate and express your ideas, you open an entirely new world of possibilities. You’ll be more persuasive and confident when giving presentations, and you’ll improve your one-on-one dealings with others.

Come to our next meeting!
Our theme will be: “Keeping Cool” As the weather gets hotter and hotter, how will you stay cool this summer?

Practice – that’s the secret. And support. And helpful feedback. Yes – you can do it.
