Claiming Your Seat at the Table & Finding a Mentor with Linda Taliaferro
The Joy to Lead Podcast
This episode of the Joy to Lead Podcast is a powerful one, thanks to my guest Linda Taliaferro. Linda is a career advisor who helps professionals to get unstuck, strengthen key interpersonal relationship skills, and establish executive presence so they can get a seat at the table. Somewhere around her mid-career stage, she realized that even though she didn’t want to play the corporate politics game, she needed to understand it to thrive. And so she did. She found the right people to align with to ask questions and be a champion for her. She discovered that building relationships and having the “secret sauce” is what gets people to the top.

Linda Taliaferro | Vulnerability as a super power and the path to her seat at the table.
Becoming Lit AF
Linda Taliaferro is a successful business woman who has earned a seat at the corporate boardroom tables. But that isn't what makes her remarkable. What makes her remarkable is her dedication to using her heartbreaks, struggles and traumas as an opportunity to expand herself, to embody her own deep strength and find her place and presence in the world. After several decades of climbing the corporate ladder, traveling the world, personal growth and learning the value in vulnerability she has created a side hustle that allows her to invite other women, and some men, to do the same. She is a force. She is a beauty. She is an incredible human.
