+ Follow

Which skills and competencies do you need most for advancing your career?

In this episode host Jim Karrh talks with executive coach and writer Anne Sugar. Anne has advised top leaders at companies including TripAdvisor, Sanofi Genzyme, and Havas. She’s an executive coach for Harvard Business School Executive Education and has guest lectured at MIT. She is also a frequent contributor for Inc. magazine and Harvard Business Review.

Among the topics that Jim discusses with Anne are:

  • Where most executives have—and lack—confidence in their technical versus “soft” skills
  • How someone can best embrace the role of a message leader in their organization
  • The importance of using different modes of communication for greater influence
  • What a “stakeholder communication scenario” is, and how it helps leaders in times of change
  • How leaders can best demonstrate empathy and understanding (without making it all about themselves)
