Leslie Ehm— Unlocking the Swagger of Leaders from Some of the World's Biggest Brands (#33)
ABOUT TODAY'S EPISODE
What do YOU call that X-Factor, that when you have it— creates influence, connection, and an unwavering belief in what you’re saying or asking for?
Is it influence? Confidence? Authenticity?
Leslie Ehm calls it Swagger.
A former TV host and professional singer, Leslie spent decades traveling the globe with her award-winning company Combustion, training leaders from places like Google, Disney, Pepsico, Uber, HBO, and more. Her workshops have turned technologists into creative forces, bankers into incredible storytellers, and has created serious levels of discomfort, disruption, and breakthroughs into boardrooms everywhere.
Leslie has a fierce passion for human potential. She’s the author of the brand-new book Swagger – Unleash Everything You Are and Become Everything You Want.
She has been called “better than therapy”, “a rock star”, “ass-kicking”, “a force of nature” and even “a witch”.
This conversation was a blast. We talk about her truly legendary Mom who created a global movement around female solo travel.
We get into the connection between extreme discomfort and personal transformation. Leslie also details the specifics about how to tap into your own Swagger, and how to leverage it as fuel for your personal brand.
She also covers everything she learned from stepping into the boxing ring, and why her walk-on song is “Momma Said Knock You Out” by LL Cool J.
I mean, who couldn’t use a little more Swagger? Enjoy this far-ranging conversation on tapping into your authentic voice with Leslie Ehm.
