On Wednesday 17 May, RSM’s Women with SASS hosted an inspiring workshop style lunch for their clients, contacts and team members. A Canberra-born initiative and now a whole of firm approach driving diversity of ideas through quarterly networking opportunities and coaching events.
Launched by RSM Australia in November 2016, ‘Women with SASS’ stands for Strength, Ambition, Sophistication and Smarts. The vision is to empower women to move forward with confidence, whether it be in business or government, and drive diversity of thought through the provision of networking and workshop opportunities.
The May workshop, facilitated by Arabella Macpherson, Director of Resonate Communications, was designed to coach and empower women in our capital on Leading with Influence.
Tip: Match and use 8 words sentences! Clear, short, and honest.
Participants were encouraged to practice these strategies in the relationships that mattered to them outside the workplace, such as their partner, children or friends.
Preparation is key! Mindfulness and positive psychology can be used to ensure you are operating at an optimal mental state. This results in being present and becoming a powerful communicator.
Arabella’s fundamental message was:
Our thoughts influence our words,
Our words influence our actions,
Our actions influence others!
You see the connection?
