Ep 74: Leadership Lessons that Make You a Better Speaker
When you hear the word “leader”, do you get excited and empowered to make a difference or is that a word that makes you question your value or feel inferior? When we look at speaking and leading from the stage, the term leader is not about authority, seniority or recognition. Leading from the stage is all about service! It's the act of guiding your audience on a clear journey to help them achieve a result. Today I want to have an honest chat about what leadership really means within your business, particularly when it comes to speaking.
