Professional Development Session with Barrhonda White, PCC
Barrhonda White

Barrhonda’s aim as a coach is to multiply greatness one leader, one team, and one life at a time. She recognizes that leaders are constantly on a stage and thus offers a safe and judgment free “backstage” for leaders. She offers a balance of asking insightful questions, exploring values, unpacking beliefs that may be limiting and serving as an accountability partner for impactful transformation. Ultimately, Barrhonda helps leaders prepare to have personal and professional proud moments while yielding significant value for their respective organizations.

Ever feel unsure about how to handle a tough conversation? When communicating a point of view or a concern, are you feeling unheard or misunderstood? Successful influence requires many prerequisites, one of which is having a solid sense of your personality and knowing which aspects may enable and / or hinder your interpersonal interactions.

Leadership Transitions
Consider timing, training, and overlap in this discussion on how to onboard new directors to your board and new committee leaders.

Documenting Processes
Don't reinvent the wheel every year. Document processes and standard operating procedures for the board and committees. Discuss format, training and ideas to hold designated people accountable to update regularly.

Engaging Volunteers
We know that members who are engaged tend to benefit the most from CREW. Share ideas to help busy professionals not feel overwhelmed, yet build awareness of the benefits they will receive by volunteering.

Cultivate Inclusion and Awareness
CREW is a platform in which CRE professionals can learn about other facets of the industry, engage with their peers across the globe and advance their careers leveraging these connections. Discuss deliberate actions that leaders (and members) can take to exemplify the growth and support of fellow CRE professionals with the goal of abolishing other perceptions of the organization. (E.g. get rid of labels: clique-ish, women's group, etc.)
