233: Identify Your Thought Leadership Model with Carol Cox
Speaking Your Brand: A Public Speaking Podcast
In this episode, I share 3 types of thought leadership models: personality-driven, research-driven, and mission-driven. A lot of times we see someone who we would categorize as a thought leader and think that we can’t do what they do - and you don’t have to be just like them. You can see which of these 3 types most closely aligns with who you naturally are. Just like your business model influences your customer segments, value proposition, key activities, and channels, your thought leadership model will do the same. Once you have an understanding of which type of thought leader you are, your goals, your message, your content, and your platforms will be much clearer and easier to implement.

213: The V.O.I.C.E. of Thought Leaders with Carol Cox [Big Ideas Series]
Speaking Your Brand: A Public Speaking Podcast
How can you start developing your thought leadership message? In this episode, I walk you through: my V.O.I.C.E. model for thought leadership common fears that keep us as women from speaking up the rewards you get from speaking up 6 steps to position yourself as a thought leader Download our free Thought Leadership workbook that has the V.O.I.C.E. framework, question prompts, and more: https://www.speakingyourbrand.com/guide/. I define a thought leader as someone who has an interesting idea, especially one that hasn’t been talked about a lot in their circle of influence, that challenges the status quo and challenges our assumptions; who communicates it with conviction and boldness; who inspires people to take action; AND who causes people to be self-reflective, to learn more about themselves and how they relate to the world. Thought leaders who gain momentum also have what I call a container or project for their thought leadership message, which you’ll hear more about in this episode. One of my thought leadership containers is this podcast; the other is the Brave. Bold. Beyond. Live Virtual Summit we did last year and that we’re doing again on April 1st.

212: 5 Rules for Being an Excellent Emcee with Carol Cox and Amber Hawley
Speaking Your Brand: A Public Speaking Podcast
Have you been asked to be an emcee for an event or thought about being one? An emcee (or MC, Master of Ceremonies) is the person who is the bridge and what I call the cohesive glue of the event. Being an emcee is harder than it looks! You’re a host, an entertainer, and a representative of the event’s brand. As the emcee, your goal is to make the participants, the event organizer, their brand, and their business look good. I recently was the emcee for a virtual event and wanted to share my experiences and lessons with you. I’m joined in this episode by Amber Hawley, who is the emcee for our Brave. Bold. Beyond. Live Virtual Summit coming up on April 1st and was the emcee for the event we did last year. Amber and I talk about 5 rules we came up with for being an excellent, effective, and engaging emcee. These rules apply whether you’re doing virtual or in-person events. And these rules are helpful for you as a speaker! Be sure to register for our next Brave. Bold. Beyond. LIVE virtual summit to see Amber in action! https://www.speakingyourbrand.com/summit/ About My Guest: Amber Hawley is a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist and owner of a group private practice.
