839: Susan M. Barber – Secrets to Becoming More Visible

Today we’re going to be talking about the visibility you need to grow your business…and if you’re uncomfortable with visibility, this episode is especially for you! Today I speak with Susan M. Barber about the subject of visibility, which in my opinion, is one of the biggest challenges that we business owners and subject matter experts face! In our illuminating and practical conversation, Susan and I talk about how you can adapt ‘visibility-increasing’ techniques and methods to your own personal style (even if you consider yourself an introvert!), how to know if you’re actually becoming more visible, and how a good ‘visibility mindset’ can help overcome self-sabotage. We also review Susan’s helpful 4-step process for building visibility.

Susan M. Barber, Author, Podcast Host, Former Fortune 500 IT Director, turned Executive Coach helping business leaders to play bigger, increase their visibility and finally, shine a light on their leadership strengths and elevate their position in the workplace. She brings a depth of business knowledge to her coaching from her 25+ years of experience at Kraft Heinz and is the author of The Visibility Factor. She is creating a visibility movement for leaders to show their value and be seen for their true talent.
