MESSAGE FROM THE CHAIR

JUNE WOOD

Wayne Lowrey Executive Vice President at United Community Bank 2018 Chair of Henry County Chamber of Commerce

Your Chamber at Work…

Partners for Progress.

Happy New Year!!!

port and research for community projects.

I’ve always been one that likes New Year’s Resolutions. I write them down and review them throughout the year. While the Henry County Chamber of Commerce doesn’t make New Year’s Resolutions, we do set goals and review them throughout the year. Recently, we held a Board Planning Session to set goals for 2018. One initiative is to let you, the citizens and businesses in Henry County, hear more about the good things your Chamber is doing. As Chairman, I plan to make that my number one priority.

A perfect example of Your Chamber at Work has been the successful effort to bring a campus of Southern Crescent Technical College to Henry County. We now are looking forward to the completion of the second building on the Southern Crescent Technical School campus in McDonough, with plans for an eight building campus when fully developed. The chamber was an integral part of the process facilitating discussions among our state legislative leaders, local government, education and business leaders in completing this project.

Your Chamber at Work… Do you know that Your Chamber of Commerce is at work… for you? The chamber represents its members every day working as an advocate for the business community. It is the one organization in the county that is able to connect government, industry, education, individuals, businesses and faith-based organizations. Beyond that, the Chamber has access to regional and state organizations that can provide sup-

The Chamber of Commerce works closely with the Convention and Visitors Bureau, marketing Henry County and its local businesses and helping to attract tourism to the county. Your Chamber also works very closely with the Development Authority, seeking new business opportunities to bring new jobs to our county. This joint effort was successful in bringing approximately 1,500 new jobs to Henry County in 2017.

Currently, the Chamber of Commerce is very involved with the One Henry Initiative, a project that was born out of a Chamber of Commerce Intergovernmental retreat a couple of years ago. The One Henry Initiative has several goals including workforce development and the formation of Community Improvement Districts (CIDs). These goals when met will enable Henry County to meet the work force needs now and in the future. The formation of CIDs will support traffic relief, advocating for an additional interchange along I-75.

Partners for Progress. If you are already a member of the Henry County Chamber of Commerce, thank you for being a part of the team. We have over 720 members, many of whom devote time to our various committees to help support many worthwhile initiatives. If you are not a member, please consider joining. I’m confident you and your business will benefit. At the Henry County Chamber of Commerce, it’s not just a membership, it’s a partnership… for progress.

Gezzo’s Surf & Grille 1866 Jonesboro Road McDonough, GA 30253 (770) 954-9992 http://www.gezzos.com

Howard Hsu & Anita Hsu Founders Gezzo’s Surf & Grille

About the Founders Gezzo’s Surf & Grille is where your taste buds take a vacation! That is what brother, sister co-founders Anita Hsu and Howard Hsu aimed at creating when they started Henry County’s first west-coast burrito shop. Taking inspiration from their roots in California and Hawaii, they wanted to create a place where beach culture, art, healthy eating and a concern for the environment was a part of everyday life. The menu is focused on fresh ingredients and daily-prepared meats and vegetables, so that you feel good after you eat! The flavors are eclectic with the menu ranging from Spicy jerk Chicken Burritos and Chipotle Chicken Eggrolls to Fish Tacos and Baja Veggie Quesadillas.

About Gezzo’s Surf & Grille Be fresh and unique is their motto! From their 4 different salsas to the grilled chicken and skirt steak, Gezzo’s food is made in house daily. Gezzo’s Surf & Grille offers over 30 different entrees and 12 different toppings, so you can customize your meal to be different 365 days a year. Unlike the average burrito shop, they offer freshly grilled shrimp and fish for a taste of the sea! There is something for everyone. Gezzo’s Surf & Grille also has a food truck and offers catering.

Community Support Gezzo’s Surf & Grille is a contributor to Taste of Henry. They also sponsor several Henry County Schools. Gezzo’s Surf & Grille continues to support as a contributor to National Night Out (a community-police awareness-raising event in the United States).

Chamber Involvement The Chamber has been a great way to network with other local business leaders. It is also a way to learn more about community events, infrastructure growth, and business practice strategies.

How to Overcome Imposter Syndrome Judiffier Pearson, Business Consultant The University of Georgia SBDC at Clayton State University Approximately 70% of CEOs and executive teams have admitted to feeling like a fake or fraud at some point during their leadership tenure. This phenomenon is called ‘Imposter Syndrome’ and is common in high-achievers and people in high-profile authority positions. People like Facebook’s Sheryl Sandberg, actress Kate Winslett, Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor, actor Tom Hanks, and author Seth Godin have all admitted to feeling like frauds. The Imposter Syndrome is characterized by chronic self-doubt and feelings of inadequacy, even when there is a track record that proves otherwise. You and your executive team may find yourselves struggling

with similar doubts and fears: you don’t have enough experience to lead your organization; you’re not the expert that everyone thinks you are; luck, not talent, has brought you this far; etc. These fears and insecurities can lead to dysfunctional behavior, such as: not wanting to appear vulnerable; a lack of honest communication; and failure to build a collaborative culture… all the things that will stagnate corporate growth. Here are three things that you can do to overcome the fear: 1. Assemble a braintrust. If you’re the smartest person in your circle, get a new circle or add smarter people. As you grow in leadership and in-

fluence, it becomes even more vital that you seek out counsel, mentorship, and coaching. You don’t feel like an imposter when you readily admit what you don’t know, then put a braintrust around you that can help you navigate the unknowns. Being around the right people can put 360-degree genius at your disposal. 2. Be brave. Leaders often have to make choices about an uncertain future... choices that may impact everyone around them. Uncertainty and ambiguity require creativity and courage. Be brave in your workplace and make the best decisions that you can with the best information that’s available to you at the time. It’s all you can do. Release yourself from the pressures of pursuing perfection. 3. Remember it’s not about you. Take the focus off yourself and focus on creating

value for your customers and your community. Businesses solve problems with goods, services, job creation, philanthropy, mentoring, and advocacy. When you’re trying to make the world a little bit better, you fuel your cause with your strengths. This leaves little time to focus on perceived weaknesses. To learn more about how you can grow as a business leader and develop your organization, contact The Small Business Development Center (SBDC) at morrow@georgiasbdc.org, or call 678-466-5100.

CHAMBER BRIEFS Leadership Henry attends Education Day Learn about the great things that are happening in our community…

About 30 helpers keep more than 2,000 pounds of trash and debris from a watershed leading to the Tussahaw reservoir in Locust Grove during the annual Rivers Alive cleanup.

Speedway Motorsports, Inc. officials have named Ed Clark, Atlanta Motor Speedway president and general manager, as the ‘Speedway Motorsports’ Promoter of the Year. If you are a Chamber member with good news to share, send your logo and/or photo and information to lpierre@ henrycounty.com and let us spread the word!

The 2017-18 Leadership Henry class went back to school for Education Day in November. The state of education in Henry County was the program for the day, and the class went from one end of the county to the other learning about how we are preparing our students for life after graduation. The morning kicked off with a visit to Eagle’s Landing Christian Academy beginning with breakfast and a theatrical performance by the school’s drama department. Class members also had the opportunity to tour the school’s facilities and hear presentations from administrators, athletics and fine arts departments. Next, the class visited Rock Springs Elementary where they learned how the school has implemented personalized learning this year. School leaders shared with the class how the school embraces a personalized approach to education that allows students to learn at their own pace through a variety of methods. Student ambassadors led Leadership Henry participants on tours of the school and classrooms, observing personalized learning in action. The Academy for Advanced Studies adjacent to Henry County High School was the next stop for the class. The Academy is a charter school available to all high school students that expands educational opportunities in secondary and post-

secondary course work.   Through partnerships within the local community, the goal of the Academy for Advanced Studies is to ensure the seamless transition for students to college and/or careers while developing a viable future workforce. A phenomenal lunch prepared by students from the Academy’s Culinary Arts program was enjoyed while school administrators shared some of the initiatives and vision

for the Academy. Leadership Henry got a tour of the state-of-the art facility that includes over twenty career pathways including supply chain management, engineering, healthcare, and energy and power. The program day concluded at Southern Crescent Technical College’s Henry County campus in McDonough where their leadership team shared about the school and plans for the future. Leadership Hen-

ry had the opportunity to tour the building and learn about the current state of post-secondary education in the county, as well as future plans for expansion for the SCTC campus. Education Day concluded with an Energy Bus session, where the class discussed their reading and how it applies to their business and personal lives. The December program for Leadership Henry will focus on Healthcare in Henry County.

a degree or getting an additional credential to enhance their employability. For their last stop, the Youth Leadership Henry class visited the Henry Campus of Southern Crescent Technical College. They discussed some of the opportunities available to Henry students at that facility and the plans for its eventual expansion to an eight building campus. The real focus of the stop was an amazing presentation on Leadership by Dr. Scott Ross. The class members remarked that the session was awesome, and totally

not what they were expecting. The class had a great day learning about education in our community, and are looking forward to their visit to Piedmont Henry Hospital in January! If you want to keep up with class events and programs, we encourage you to “like” the Youth Leadership Henry Facebook page and follow them on Twitter @YLHenry. Many of the day’s presentations were recorded on video, and available for view on their Facebook page.

Youth Leadership Henry gets educated on education The Youth Leadership Henry Class of 2018 met at the Henry Schools Academy for Advanced Studies (AAS) campus in McDonough on the morning of Saturday December 2 to learn about many of the educational opportunities in our community and their impact on the community as a whole. AAS Chief Executive Oficer John Uesseler welcomed them to the facility and got them assembled in the Media Center, where the class began punctually at 8:30. The students were joined by Mrs. Holly Cobb, the School Board member serving District Three, who started the day with a description of her role on the school board. They learned about the importance of it being an elected position as well as their role in setting the mission and vision that the Superintendent and her staff are then tasked with implementing.

Assistant Superintendent for Learning and Leadership, Aaryn Schmuhl, introduced himself to the class and engaged with them about the school system and where it is going with its “2020 Vision” for systemwide personalized learning by the year 2020. In doing so, he led them through several fun team tasks that illustrated the way that, just like functional teams collaborate in the “real world”, the Academy fosters learning experiences that will prepare them for that. He did a Q&A with the class that was very comprehensive, and showed that the class was very interested in both the Academy and the mission and vision of the school system, especially personalized learning. Founding member of the Youth Leadership Henry board, Mrs. Susan Howington, lead the class through the “attitude” segment of our Work Ethics monthly

focus. Each month the students are working with the class to help foster and develop the 21st Century skills that employers are clamoring for. The class realized that this is a vital component of workforce development in the community, and these 45 young leaders will be great “missionaries” to re-deliver these important concepts to their peers when they return to school each month after their meetings. Mr. Uesseler then described the variety of offerings at the Academy for Advanced Studies, and a little of its history; including the importance of the collaboration between business, community, education, and political leaders and the One Henry initiative that identified a College & Career Academy as a priority and leveraged the resources necessary to make it happen. They then took a tour of the Academy and learned

about the myriad opportunities for preparation for post-secondary success that are offered there. The Youth Leadership Henry Class enjoyed a lunch of spaghetti, chicken alfredo, salad, Italian bread, and cookies; all prepared from scratch and served by the Academy’s culinary arts students and their chef. After leaving the Academy, they boarded the bus and headed to Mercer University’s Henry Regional Academic Center. The class had a great discussion about the variety of programs offered at the various campuses of Mercer University, and learned about the Henry center, which is geared more to adults that are finishing

NOVEMBER

BUSINESS BOOSTERS LUNCHEON RECAP “Show and Tell” was one of the earliest games you may have played in kindergarten. You loved it so much you still remember it half a lifetime later. Your teacher had you play it so you could learn how to share with others, and how to speak in public, which are essential skills that still serve you today. Those in attendance got the opportunity to bring out their inner child in their business and enthusiastically sell what they love to do in a fun and creative way. If you’re a self-employed entrepreneur, it’s your task to work with others. The act of telling them about your craft is what we call sales. When you played “Show and Tell” in kindergarten, you inspired many people to want what you had. At this luncheon, the attendees did just that. Special thanks to all who brought Door Prizes!
