Every single person has the innate ability to become a good leader, and the only thing you have to do is tap this power deep within you.
Every single person has the innate ability to become a good leader, and the only thing you have to do is tap this power deep within you. If you can embrace an executive mindset, you can rise to the challenge - right now. You don't have to wait for someone else to acknowledge your talents. April Armstrong, a certified expert facilitator and master executive coach, is a strong believer in this concept. She wrote all about it in her book, The Day One Executive. She joins Dom Brightmon to discuss how to behave and perform like a high-level executive on the go. April discusses the best ways to make yourself feel seen, be heard, and recognized as the skilled leader you truly are.
