Bold Business Podcast

Our roles as leaders constantly evolve, as does our business – whether from changes in the market, adjusting course to stay on the company vision or even to the number of hats worn. Problems reveal themselves when we understand people and read situations well. However, sometimes the chatter within our own mind, expectations of others and our own limiting thoughts … add complexity. Here on the Voice of Bold Business Radio we talk about skills to ask better questions, solve problems and take action. The result is effectively handling: tough situations; changing culture; adding new products or markets; setting goals; reviewing people; evaluating business; setting priorities; building strategy; and more. You will find reflections on what worked within real situations … and what didn’t. You will find ideas discussed that apply to your situation and spark curiosity. These conversations deliver possibility. In every program, we acknowledge there is more than one way to reach the end goal. Action matters. Bold Business includes strategy, ideas, leadership, promotion, operations, prioritizing, confidence, problem-solving, solutions, communication, marketing, values, goals, efficiency, responsibility, sustainability, accountability, manners, rules of engagement, vision, mission, business, transitions, management, crisis management, character, soft skills, core competencies, tactical skills, what works (and doesn’t) – all from Business Advocate Jessica Dewell. Transcripts, highlights and immediately useful show notes are available for each episode. Go to VoiceOfBoldBusiness.com for show archives. The Voice of Bold Business is brought to you by Red Direction.
