“My best successes came on the heels of failures.”

Barbara Corcoran

What makes a Great Leader? 

Do you consider yourself a leader? Often those who impact our lives the most are ordinary people.

Leadership and Influence

With guest Carol Cox

Mentors, leaders, those who impact and influence our lives can come from the most unexpected place. A coworker, a childhood friend, a chance meeting on an airplane. We don’t always get to chose the moments that steer the direction of our lives or impact our choices, but we can honor them when they come.

Look back, if you want to see those moments and those mentors who have influenced you the most.

When it comes to true leadership, that is something that cannot be taught, it is a  practice. 

In today’s episode, we take a look at how things have changed for women, how the different generations view leadership and some tough choices that Carol and I both made along the way that has impacted our lives. Carol Cox of Speaking your Brand joins me in the podcast studio to talk about influence, leadership, why she chose to take her popular Facebook Group off of the Facebook platform and much more.

What you’ll hear in this podcast:

  • How change that you chose, is different than a change that you didn’t
  • How women from different generations might as well be from different planets
  • Women’s voices need to be heard now more than ever
  • Is Facebook Over?
  • The mega-church mentality is toxic
  • Feminism – what is it good for
