Do you sometimes wonder how BOLD you want to be with your thought leadership message?
You know you have something important and impactful to say, but you’re a bit uncertain on how it will be received and if there will be any backlash.
I have definitely experienced this - and the benefits have far outweighed any negativity.

Jodi recently graduated from our Thought Leader Academy, where she worked on her thought leadership message and signature talk.
