5 Chamber Works September 2013 Page 5 Leadership Communication Understanding different leadership and communication styles was the focus of Leadership Washington County s August session. Dick Hammond from Leadership on the Move led the day-long workshop. The day was full of activities to teach effective leadership and communication skills. The class was led through several exercises to determine their current styles of leadership and areas in which they wanted to focus on for growth. Throughout the day class members were reminded that leadership is proactive and effective leaders challenge the process, inspire a shared vision, enable others to act, model the way, and encourage the heart. Chamber-CVB staff member Judy Hyman is part of the new Leadership class. She stated that her favorite part of this session was when everyone stood in a circle with a rope on the floor that was tied end-to-end and coiled into itself so several circles were formed. Then one by one each participant stepped forward and grabbed a piece of the rope that was across from where they were standing. As everyone stepped back to reform the circle, the rope became more and more tangled. The challenge was to keep your hand on the rope all times and untangle the rope so a large circle was formed. As she explained, Almost immediately, about 5 class members emerged as the person giving directions. That was too many people to follow, so some members decided to let only 2 class members give directions. This exercise also reminded me that each of us give and receive instructions differently and that what a person hears is not necessarily what is always intended, so we definitely need to remember that when trying to communicate with others. Leadership Washington County is a program of the Washington County Chamber aimed at educating and motivating current and future leaders. The next session will be a Team- Building Retreat on Sept. 26th and will be facilitated by Camp For All Director Kurt Podeszwa. Class members Sassy Susan Myers and Kindness Kelvin Raven write notes of encouragement on cards that are taped to each other s back. Jumping James Meyer, Courageous Kelli Shomaker, Helpful Harris Kubos, Sassy Susan Myers and Enthusiastic Emily Bolenbarr concentrate during a team building exercise. The marbles represented wisdom and the exercise illustrated how giving others wisdom is more rewarding than imparting it to yourself. Leadership participants Daytime David Eldridge and Smiling Sam Sommer introduce each other to the class. The group works together to untangle a rope so that it becomes a circle while keeping one hand on the rope at all times. The group works together to build a star out of the rope. Success!

The Chamber s Business After Hours networking events have always been outstanding events each month. Chances are if you want to see someone from the local business community, you will find them at Business After Hours. Many know the social benefits of attending. Many more are discovering the business benefits of attending. If you are not yet taking advantage of these networking opportunities, you should. Here are some tips for making the most of the opportunity: - Wear a name tag. If you don t have one from your place of business, the Chamber will have some blanks at the event for you to fill in and wear. Name tags help people to remember your name and the business you represent. (And some of us need more help than others in the memory department!) - Bring your business cards. Give one to everyone you meet. This gives people your direct contact information, so they can do business with you after the event. - Talk to people. Don t be shy! Initiate conversations with people you don t recognize. Let that be your conversation starter, Hello, I don t believe we ve met. Most people who attend are Chamber members, so you already have something in common. And most will be very willing to tell you about their business, so start by asking them what they do. - Donate a door prize. Another way to get recognition at the event is to contribute a door prize to be given away. Bring it to the Chamber before the event, or bring it with you tha night. Everyone loves to win some thing, and this is a great way to make a connection with others. - Get to know the host. Meet the business owner(s). Be sure to find the host and say hello. Take the tour o the property, if offered. Thank them for hosting the event. - Come early and stay late. The longer you are there, the more people you will get to meet and the more who will meet you. - Have fun! There is always grea food and drinks. Everyone has a good time at the Chamber s Business Afte Hours events. Make it a point to at tend. It may be your most importan business meeting of the month! Chamber News & Notes Get Noticed The ChamberWorks newsletter is published inside The Banner-Press on the first Thursday of the month. Chamber members have the opportunity to advertise in this newsletter. Rates start at only $25 per month.

(979) or The Real Value of Joining the Chamber A recent national study reveals that membership in a local Chamber of Commerce can significantly boost a business image among consumers, as well as among other businesses. In a scientific survey of two thousand U.S. adults, The Shapiro Group, an Atlanta-based strategic consulting firm, found positive perceptions of Chamber members in a number of areas, including overall favorability, consumer awareness and reputation, and likelihood of future patronage. The study also showed that when respondents were told that a particular small business was a member of its local Chamber, they were 44 percent more likely to rate it favorably than study respondents who were not told of the Chamber affiliation. Respondents were also 63 percent more likely to want to purchase goods or services from a small business that is a Chamber member. Alex Trouteaud, Ph.D., senior strategist for The Schapiro Group, said There clearly is a feeling by respondents that Chamber membership is synonymous with quality and desirability. The positive impact of perceived Chamber membership is felt by big businesses too. For example, when consumers believed that a restaurant chain was a member of the local Chamber of Commerce, they were 40 percent more likely to eat at the franchise in the future. Jim Blasingame, small business expert and president of Small Business Network, said, Join your local Chamber, be an active participant in your Chamber s programs and be sure to let your customers and prospects know you re a proud Chamber supporter when they come in your business and when they see your marketing material.
