Episode 40: Finding Your Voice: Strategies to Own Your Own Narrative

In today’s episode, we’re diving into the importance of owning your own narrative and speaking up for yourself. Co-host, Tywauna Wilson shares practical strategies and tips to help you assert yourself with grace and confidence. This episode was inspired by a question sparked during a recent emerging leaders panel discussion, that asked… “What advice would you give your younger self ?” It became clear that speaking up for ourselves is a fundamental skill that many struggle with. This episode will cover the reasons behind this struggle and how we can overcome them. 

Here are a few of the strategies to help you own your own narrative with grace and assertiveness but you have to listen to the whole episode to get all of them 🎙️

  • Understand your worth: Believe in your unique value and let it empower you.
  • Identify your needs and desires: Reflect on what truly matters to you.
  • Develop assertive skills: Learn to express yourself while respecting others.
  • Choose the right moment: Timing is crucial when speaking up.
  • Use clear and concise language: Communicate your thoughts effectively.

Having the confidence to assert yourself is crucial for your personal growth and for a healthy communication.

Don’t let others create your narrative – take control and own it.  Let’s dive in and start speaking up!
