Summary: Volunteer leaders are instrumental in implementing ASHA's strategic focus on diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI). The wide range of perspectives and backgrounds among members of most committees presents a challenge and opportunity for volunteer leaders. Some feel unsure about how to address issues associated with DEI. However, the multitude of voices, perspectives, and experiences can result in highly effective committees and outcomes when managed well. In this webinar, you will gain valuable insights on specific practices you can use as a volunteer to create an inclusive and safe environment to maximize your members’ engagement.

Summary: Leaders play an instrumental role in guiding their organizations through adversity, significant change, and crisis by maintaining their ability to persevere, rebound quickly from setbacks, maintain a positive attitude. The events of the past 18 months associated with the COVID pandemic have underscored how critical it is for leaders to sustain their grit and resilience. If not handled effectively, adversity can result in burnout, turnover, lost productivity, and poor performance. Influential leaders regularly invest in their resilience and support the ability of their followers to cope with tough times.

Summary: Leaders who proactively manage their careers are often the most successful and resilient. Emerging trends in the CSD profession and the healthcare and education sectors are both a blessing and a curse. For proactive leaders, emerging trends are a source of exciting new opportunities. Instead of waiting for their boss to direct them to take a class or enhance their skills, proactive leaders make a conscious effort to assess, refresh and build their capabilities. Further, when faced with a promotion or expansion of their role, visionary leaders prepare for the transition using strategies to prevent derailment.

Summary: Effective communication is a foundational leadership function and a vital characteristic of a competent leader. Given the unique role, leaders play in driving change and leading others through challenges, communication for leaders is much more complicated and nuanced than for individual contributors. Leaders who are skilled communicators create mutual understanding, harmony, and action by adapting their communication styles based on situational factors. Harnessing the power to communicate effectively is one of a leader's most critical skills, especially during crises or significant setbacks.

Summary: Ethical leadership, anchored in transformational leadership theory, forms the basis for civility in the workplace. Embodying ethical leadership, ASHA’s focus on communication has resulted in research on declining civility nationally and its implications for members. This growing awareness has prompted ASHA to develop a suite of tools and resources for building and sustaining civility in the CSD professions. In this one-hour webinar, participants will explore ethical leadership, leadership purpose, and identifying ways to practice civility behaviors in their professional roles.

Summary: This self-study is composed of research presented at the 2017 ASHA Convention Research Symposium, “Advances in Autism Research: From Learning Mechanisms to Novel Interventions.” These journal articles – published as part of a 2018 research forum in the Journal of Speech, Language, and Hearing Research – explore the clinical implications of current research on SLPs’ work with children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD). Specific topics include ways to personalize intervention, the interaction between language and executive functioning, how a child’s ability to interact differently with their environment impacts communication, and factors that may influence the development of shape bias, which is an important factor in vocabulary development.
