Expanding the wisdom, visibility, and influence of women in business

November Breakfast - Love the Learning Conversation

Featuring Kim Zabel, Deputy Assistant Secretary, Environmental Public Health Division at Washington State Department of Health
Thursday, November 9, 7:00 - 9:00 AM, Women's University Club

Communication is hard and when it breaks down, we are pushed to find a better way. For Kim Zabel this push came mid-career when she realized she was not the leader she envisioned and her weakness was building effective relationships. Motivated, she sought a Master’s Degree from the Leadership Institute of Seattle and became an internal consultant for the State of Washington teaching transformative techniques to unlock even the most challenged of communicators.  

Join us for breakfast as Kim teaches us the power of her go-to development tool, the Awareness Wheel, a tool she uses across government organizations to help individuals and teams reach positive outcomes. She will detail how to use it as a guide for conversations, especially when we need to: 

- Check our story; is what I am telling myself real? 

- Work through triggers and shut downs.   

- Get past fear and doubt based reactions. 

- Be OK with clumsiness and vulnerability.
