I just had the true pleasure of delivering a keynote presentation to Securities America’s annual conference. I spoke to their team of Super Women on The Missing Piece of Leadership. After watching their faces light up after owning their stories and finding a connection with each other, here is my call to action to all of you:
- Give yourself permission to take time to work on your story. Make sure it’s working for you and not against you. Tweak it. Practice it. Own it.
- Give yourself permission to show your authentic self. Even if your laugh is loud, laugh out loud.
- Give yourself permission to reach out, find common ground, build bridges. With initial discomfort comes comfort and growth.
Cx (Connection) = Intra (owning your story) + Inter (finding a connection with one another) + Org (building bridges across the organization). Connection is the essence of life. What kind of communicator are you?
