About this event

Communication and leadership skills are some of the most important skills we need to succeed in all areas of our lives. Do you struggle to define your goals and bring them to fruition? Do you sometimes feel your decisions don't represent what's most important to you? Do you find it challenging to connect with people? Then these workshops can help.

The workshops will be hybrid so you can attend in person or online. All attendees must be 18 years of age or older.

These three workshops are being presented by members of Hershaw Toastmasters - a club that focuses its efforts on helping our members become better communicators and leaders. Registration is required but attendance is free. All workshops will be presented as part of the regular club meeting.

January 19. 2023 - Goal Setting

Antoine de Saint-Exupery said, "a goal without a plan is just a wish." In this workshop, you'll learn, not just how to set a goal with intent, but also the skills to follow through, create a plan and make that goal a reality.

February 2, 2023 - Values

Values are a basic set of beliefs and ideas held by an individual, a group or a society. Can you define yours? Which ones are most important and why? Do they align with how you make decisions in your life? In this workshop, we'll explore values and guide you through the process of answering those questions.

February 16, 2023 - Storytelling

Have you ever heard someone else's story and felt emotion rising in you? If you did, then they made a connection with you. It's through storytelling that we connect with others. In this workshop, you'll learn how to tell your stories in a way that will help you build those connections with others.
