I would like to say what an honor it is to be your 2021 Women’s Council of Realtors Flagler County President and how excited I am to make this a successful year and to be able to lead you all in our pursuit of Authentic Leadership! I’ve been active in Women’s Council for about 4 years now and every year I learn more and more about the value it provides to me and the abundance of resources at my fingertip.
Authentic Leadership is our theme for this year -- what exactly is Authentic Leadership? Well it “is an approach to leadership that emphasizes building the leader’s legitimacy through honest relationships with followers which value their input and are built on an ethical foundation”.
My personal goal for all of you this year is to identify what your leadership skills are already, you might not even be aware of your existing skills (ie: parent, charity work or even just balancing your personal budget) and emphasize your accomplishments and then provide you with the education and networking needed to enhance those skills to be a leader in your association, and more importantly to your buyers and sellers.
2020 was a year of learning how to Pivot, and we learned quite a bit about how to work and spend time with family and friends. Not in the way we are used to, but we did it and we made it to 2021. However, we need to remember those who lost their lives to this Pandemic and vow to take the necessary measure to keep everyone safe so no one else is a victim to COVID 19.
With that being said, I have learned how to Pivot (my new favorite word). We will now be offering all events live, with an option to go 100% virtual (if needed) or if you are not comfortable yet attending events there will be a virtual option to participate as well.
My goal for this year is to expand our membership by showing value to you and your pursuit of Authentic Leadership. In return I hope to grow our Partners who support us and make it possible to provide you all the beneficial events and training. If you know of a local business that could benefit from some exposure, give me their name and email or phone number so we can connect with them.
I am inviting anyone interested in becoming a member or anyone who is a member and would like to learn more about what benefits there are as a member to attend our Kickoff Orientation at FCAR, come anytime between 9-11, January 6th. I can’t wait to meet you and share in this journey.
Kathleen (Kathy) Davis-Carlton, 2021 President
