Do you know your leadership communication superpower?

Communicate with Integrity and Model What You’d Like  in Return with Tracy Smith

Welcome to my conversation with Tracy Smith, founder of Kitchen Table CEOs. Tracy is a professional writer and brand strategist who works with women entrepreneurs to tell their brand story in a way that attracts their ideal client and create content that elevates their business to new levels. Her work has graced pages of more than 50 publications, been read by millions worldwide and, most importantly, helped a lot of women “CEOs” achieve their goals and follow their dreams to build a business of their own!

Tracy shared her thoughts on the biggest challenge that leaders face today and a commonly held belief about leaders that she passionately disagrees with.

We dove into the name “Communicate to Lead” and what that means to her as well as talked about how she’s used her communication strengths to lead her clients and even her family.


Here’s what you can expect in the episode:

  • [4:00] If you want to be a really great leader who’s impactful, you must be able to pivot when things aren’t working anymore.

  • [15:01] Tracy shares why she passionately disagrees with the commonly held belief that

    leaders have to work 24/7 to be successful.
