How To Find Your Leadership Voice

In my time working with leaders across dozens of industries, I’ve discovered one key factor that often determines their success or failure: whether or not their team actually believes what they are saying.

You can have a phenomenal vision, maintain mastery of your industry, and command complete respect from your peers, but if your team doesn’t fully believe you when you speak, they’re unlikely to put it on the line at critical moments. This can mean all the difference between a successful project and a failure.


Episode 08: Your Team’s Voice

In today’s marketplace, no one works in a vacuum. We all have to do our work in the company of others, and for many of us, we also have to lead others in doing great work every day. The leader is the chief “dot connector” for the team. This means that you are constantly looking for patterns and helping everyone else see the opportunities in front of them, even before they can see them on their own.

You have to help everyone around you develop their collective voice as a team. That’s what we’re going to talk about today, as we cover chapter eight of Louder Than Words.


Episode 06: Mastery

You can have a great sense of who you are and what you’re doing in the world, and a sharp sense of vision, but if you lack mastery of the skills necessary to bring that vision into the world, you will not be effective. No one will listen to you, because you will lack credibility. If you want others to listen to you, and better yet, to act on your ideas or respond to your work, then you need to achieve mastery of a few key things: timing, and skills. That’s what we’re going to talk about on today’s episode of the bookcast, with insights from Chapter Six of Louder Than Words.


Episode 05: Vision

You don’t do your work in a vacuum. Whatever kind of work you do, you probably have to collaborate with others, serve customers, and regularly explain why your idea is the best one in the bunch. But in order to do that effectively, you have to have a vision for the outcome you’re trying to achieve. In today’s episode of the bookcast, we discuss how to define your Intended Audience, and how to make your idea precise and consonant.
