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.

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!
Ohio State does a great job of helping motivated staff help themselves through development programs and grant. Two grants are coming up in mid-September that can help academic staff reach their goals, whether your first love is research or education.
Research: Fischer Leadership Research Grant Program.
The Fisher Leadership Initiative at Fisher College of Business is accepting proposals for its second annual Leadership Research Grant Program.

The Fisher Leadership Initiative intends to award $50,000 in grants to eligible projects. The deadline to apply is Friday, Sept. 14.
Teaching and Learning: Affordable Learning Exchange grants
Ohio State has designed ALX grants specifically for instructors who want to transform their courses to increase affordability and accessibility to all students. The Office of Distance Education and eLearning sponsors these grants, because when it comes to lowering student costs, technology is a great way forward. The Affordable Learning Exchange (ALX) is requesting proposals to participate in its next cohort. In sponsoring more than 50 projects, the ALX program has already saved students more than $3 million. ALX projects encourage teaching innovation and fulfill Ohio State’s land-grant mission by creating and sharing open educational resources. The deadline to apply is Wednesday, Sept. 12.
WELD Emerging Professionals' Series - September 5th
Meet 2018 Woman WELDing the Way®, Tasha Booker, Executive Director, City Year Columbus. Join WELD for our September Emerging Professionals' Series featuring Tasha who will speak on Bridging the Generation Gap.
For the first time in our nation's history four generations are working side by side together in the workplace. We are now facing a workplace where many employers could have employees ranging from ages 18-80. This has significant implications for employers in managing the unique needs, expectations, work ethics, perspectives, opportunities and challenges of a multigenerational workforce. Studies have shown that inclusive employers are more profitable and have higher rates of staff satisfaction and retention. As challenging as this may be, many employers in all sectors and industries are finding ways to invest in maintaining a diverse, equitable, and inclusive work environment where everyone regardless of what year they were born can belong, thrive and be successful. Join us to learn how to create, manage and motivate a multigenerational workplace.
