Leveraging Voice with Lori Walsh

Deb SoholtBlog, Influential She Podcast

This episode features the High Leverage Practice of Voice with Lori Walsh.  As a radio host who has interviewed more than 6000 guests on-air, Lori claims she found her voice by being a ‘pro-eavesdropper’.  In this not-to-miss podcast, she shares the incredible influence of deep listening where we can discover the similarities of humanity that exist between us.  Lori’s wisdom of “You’re never going to be ready to fully use your voice” will inspire all to want to do exactly that.
