Have you ever been frustrated by the feeling you're not being heard? 


It's a common feeling, especially in schools and at work, and even more so when power plays a role in the relationship dynamic. 


But don't worry, we've got a solution for you!


In this episode, I am joined by the incredible Dr. Teresa Peterson from Sarah Noll Wilson Inc. With her deep roots in education, conflict resolution, and leadership coaching, she sheds light on the invisible forces that keep us from using our voices and offers actionable advice for effective communication.


We delve into the importance of building safe spaces and fostering inclusivity, where every individual feels valued and empowered to speak up. 


She also discusses the relationship between leadership roles and organizational culture, highlighting how leaders can break communication barriers to cultivate an environment that encourages open dialogue and respects diverse perspectives.


Tune in to this fantastic conversation and discover how we can all start listening better and speaking out with confidence! 



Stay empowered,
Jen
