When you talk about what’s important to you and your industry, people will listen. Especially when the message is tied to your mission and vision and it’s something that fills a gap. (No matter what you think about the online space, there will always be gaps. There’s room for us all.)
And while it’s important to do some work to decide what that message is and where you’ll share it, the most important thing is to just start sharing it. It doesn’t have to be perfect and it’s okay if it shifts and changes over time.
This week on the podcast, Carol Cox is sharing how to develop your own thought leadership through the four layers of thought leadership. She talks about her own experience in losing her voice and confidence when she was front and center and how that story connects the personal and connection…which is exactly how to approach thought leadership.
We need more women to be thought leaders and to step up to put themselves out there. And you don’t need to be degreed and credentialed to be an expert at something. One thing that helps? A support system. And the ability to avert your eyes from any comments and criticism you’ll get.
Listen in for more from Carol and how podcasting fits into it all.
