We have the opportunity to get to know a lot of amazing leaders, coaches, and authors through our work at Weaving Influence. Since I started with Becky in 2012, I’ve learned a lot – not just about the business, but about myself. No matter what the project or who we are serving, I have walked away with some new piece of knowledge to use again in the future.
My role with Weaving Influence has shifted many times over the last 27 months, but has most recently landed me in more of an oversight and training position. At times I feel like I’m just trying to stay afloat, which is usually when I recall some piece of wisdom from a client’s book. Though I will never have “CEO” after my name (I know my own limitations), I found that reading through Success in the C-Suite provided a number of encouraging ideas, which is one of the many reasons why I am so thrilled to introduce today’s focus of Featured on Friday.
