Amii Barnard-Bahn: How to enhance your promotability

What does it take to promote yourself in the best possible way? And how do you do it in a non-obnoxious way? Work on your self-awareness — explore your values, preferences and motivations. Get some insightful feedback (not forgetting your peers) on how you show up and understand what’s valued by people who matter. Develop your executive presence and your voice on topics that matter. And supercharge your strategic thinking. These are the elements of the promotability approach pioneered by Amii Barnard-Bahn we talk through in this podcast. We also talk about the representation, inclusion and belonging of women and people with disabilities.

The best bits of these conversations are captured in my newsletter Flashes+Sparks.
