Power of Communicating Your Expectations - International Association of Women

Tuesday, July 30 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm • Organized By International Association of Women - Kansas City
11900 Metcalf Avenue, Overland Park, KS 66213


Join IAW Kansas City on Tuesday, July 30th for Power of Communicating Your Expectations!




About This Event




"Unspoken expectations lead to one place, and that's resentment." - Charles J. Orlando

Women are faced with many opportunities to be disappointed because something didn't live up to our expectations; but, how often is it that we don't fully communicate what that expectation is. Maybe it's because we think it's common sense or because we know how we'd do something; it's important to remember that it's nearly impossible for someone or something to live up to your expectations if they don't know what those are.

Join IAW Kansas City on Tuesday, July 30th as we host Guest Speaker, Dr. Raina Knox. She will dive into why it's important to communicate our expectations, how it can make a big impact on our professional and personal lives, and where we are missing opportunities to adequately communicate those expectations.

You'll also have time to network with like-minded businesswomen from the Kansas City area and the opportunity to share more about yourself and what would help you reach your professional goals.

IAW is a membership based organization. You can attend one event prior to signing up. Your first drink is included with your RSVP and dinner is available for purchase. Each person is responsible for any purchases beyond their first drink.
