When you hear the word “diversity,” what do you think of? Race? Religion? Age? Gender? On today’s episode, we’re framing diversity as those special ingredients that make you who you are. It’s those ingredients that also help you to connect with others in various environments and groups and make you a dynamic speaker. My guest today is a leader, speaker, author, and coach. Amy C. Waninger is the Founder and CEO of Lead at Any Level LLC, which helps busy professionals develop skills in leadership, diversity and inclusion, and career management. She is the author of Network Beyond Bias: Making Diversity a Competitive Advantage for Your Career. When speaking to audiences, how do you deal with people who are different than you? How do you relate to them? How do you use your special ingredients to build a connection? We cover all this and more on today’s show.
Also mentioned on the show, I share that I am taking the summer off from the podcast and will be back with new episodes in September. If you have any episode or guest ideas, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
