Episode 18: Dorie Clark – Stand Out
How can we Stand Out in a noisy world? Knowing what idea to pursue when you have so many is key to success, yet discovering which idea will drive your business to the top can be like throwing spaghetti at the wall. Dorie Clark literally wrote the book on how you can differentiate yourself from the rest. It’s not always the loudest, most popular leader that wins: it’s the leader that is willing to speak truth to power, and put themselves out there in ways others may not expect.
- “I don’t want the loudest voice to always win. I want the best ideas to win.”
- “If you really want to make an impact professionally, to be able to make a difference, you need to speak truth to power.”
- “For anyone who wants to make a contribution but isn’t sure how, or isn’t sure that they can, the answer is yes. You can.”
