Title: How to communicate your value at work.
ENCORE Episode 254
Guest: Dr. Laura Camacho, communications coach, author, and host of “Speak Up with Laura” podcast
THIS WEEK’S TOPIC: Tell me if this sounds anything like you: You put your head down and work, work, work. But, all that work, work, work hasn’t necessarily led to big promotions for you. What gives? Or maybe you were laid off, and your boss explained that it was because the company wasn’t clear what you actually do all day and how you add value.
These challenges may boil down to how effectively you are communicating not just the work itself, but the value you are providing, and how you are able to think about and communicate your value not only to the team, but more broadly.
If you are a regular listener to She Said/She Said Podcast, you know that a particularly important dimension needed to build and sustain influence is story. The power of story applies in how we think about our value and how we communicate it, and how it helps us create more visibility for the value we are already providing.
Today’s encore conversation dives into this topic and gives you lots to think about and some great tools for communicating your value so that you can build more visibility, and ultimately more influence!
EDITORIAL NOTE: Episode 254 is an encore episode and part of a podcast exchange with fellow podcast host Dr. Laura Camacho. Next week, I’ll be sharing the conversation Laura and I had on her podcast where we talk more about influence and the influence framework I’ve developed and how it can help you navigate and better utilize whatever life throws your way!
ABOUT THIS WEEK’S GUEST: Dr. Laura Camacho is a communications coach, the author of “The Practical Guide to Effective Communications,” and the host of “Speak Up with Laura” podcast. One of Laura’s particular specialties is helping those who might identify as introverts to more effectively communicate their contribution, and the value of their work.
