How Two Great Bosses Helped Me Find My Voice and Strengthen It
Show Notes Chapter Markers

You’ve had the opportunity to work with people who’ve had a profound influence on who you are and what you do. Recently, I received a text from a former boss that just made my day. I remember how much I enjoyed working with him and how much I learned from him. 

 

In this episode, I’m sharing some stories about two outstanding leaders I’ve had the honor to work with and how they impacted my life and career at a point in my mid-career journey when I needed them the most. 

 

Which leader impacts you the most? Make sure you take some time to thank them for what they’ve done for you and your career.
