ASFW invites members to join us in October for a members-only Lunch & Learn on Tuesday, October 16, 11 a.m.-12:30 p.m. in room 150 of the Younkin Success Center.

Tuesday, October 16, 11 a.m.-12:30 p.m.
Trusting in Your Value. Dealing with the "Impostor Syndrome”
Presented by Dr. Melissa Briggs-Phillips
Location: Younkin Success Center, Room 150
Some of the most gifted, successful and talented people we know secretly suffer from the Impostor Syndrome, which is described as the inability to internalize one’s successes and count them all as “luck.” Some very successful professionals view themselves as incompetent and a fraud “who will soon be found out.” Successfully overcoming the impostor syndrome can lead to greater professional fulfillment and confidence and alleviate stress. Learn to recognize the symptoms and begin to build your confidence, trust in your own value and deal with your “inner critic.”
Dr. Briggs-Phillips is Founder and Owner of Next Generation Behavioral Health, LLC. She describes her executive coaching work as “an accident of history.” She has been providing training experiences for a wide variety of organizations, non-profits and companies for many years.
“I tend to resist the moniker of ‘motivational speaker,’ she says, “I do, however, understand the power of a well-timed presentation of concepts to groups and teams. I strive to create something meaningful for anyone that trusts me with those precious stage minutes at their conferences and retreats.”
Join us in October to learn more! There is no charge for this event, but registration is required for planning purposes.
ASFW welcomed more than 40 guests, who helped us kick off the new year in September with a relaxed networking event at Woodland’s Backyard in Grandview. In addition to catching up with longtime friends, we were pleased to see many new faces. Some lucky winners went home with fabulous raffle prizes and everyone enjoyed an appetizer buffet. The atmosphere was lively, allowing attendees to get to know each other while learning more about ASFW and about upcoming events.
Special thanks to ASFW Friends who provided raffle giveaways -- Moo Moo Car Wash, Chipotle, Graeter’s, Aura Spa, Relaxing Now Massage and Z Cucina -- as well as the ASFW Programming team for planning a fun event. We hope you will join us for more events in the coming months!
