Yesterday on Smashing The Plateau, Dr. Laura Sicola discussed how to master the 3Cs of Executive Vocal Presence.
Here are some of her biggest influences:
1) JV Crum III
Fantastic business coach. He has helped me restructure my business for greater profitability. The Conscious Millionaireis a great book.
2) Jonah Berger
His book, Contagious: Why Things Catch Onis a great marketing resource.
3) Grace Killelea
She was the first person who viewed my work in Vocal Executive Presence as a “game changer,” and gave me a platform to share it.
4) The Go-Giver
This book by Bob Berg and John David Mann is incredible. I love their positive, proactive, and long-term take on networking and relationships.
5) Chris Caine
When I was finishing my PhD, he invited me to do a project for his team when he was at IBM (which was my first “entrepreneurial” endeavor), and I was hooked. I left my tenure-track goals and started my own business. Since then he has also built his own global consulting firm, Mercator XXI, LLC, and we’ve continued to do projects together. He has remained a friend, colleague and mentor.
