I’ve done this many times and I can tell you from personal experience it’s a small thing that makes a big difference, not only in what the audience sees, but in how I see myself that day.

The way you show up matters.
Borrow the TV hack if it works for you, but more importantly find something that allows you to own the arena where ever that is.
You can join the next Learn from a Leader session on June 15. More than a podcast, this is a chance for you to join the conversation and get direct feedback and insights from the featured leader. Click here for more information.
