Bringing Your Worldview Into Your Business Without Polarizing Your Audience with Carol Cox: Mastering Excellence Series
With Carol Cox
Sharing your worldview with the audience of your business means you incorporate the causes and perspectives you value into the parts of the business your audience will interact with.
Your very own Sales Maven, Nikki Rausch, is here to offer tips, techniques, and strategies to master your sales conversations. This is the second episode in the “Mastering Excellence” series. Once you understand the structure of excellence, you can apply it to your life or business to achieve similar results. Today, hear an experienced entrepreneur give advice on how to bring your worldview into your business without polarizing your audience on this episode of the Sales Maven Show.
Carol Cox is the founder of Speaking Your Brand®, a coaching and training company that helps high-performing, purpose-driven women entrepreneurs and professionals create their signature talks and thought leadership platforms. Carol is host of the weekly 5-star rated Speaking Your Brand® podcast and during election seasons serves as a Democratic political analyst on TV news. She was named as one of Orlando's Women of the Year in 2021 and has been featured in Forbes. Through her company and content, her mission is to empower more women to find and use their voice, to tell the stories that need to be told, and to activate ideas for change.
Carol walks her talk, and speaks from a place of credibility, as she transparently infuses her take on the current happenings of the world into her business. She is always in her head reflecting on the thoughts of the different lives people experience. In her eyes, everyone is a role model. Humans have an instinct to mimic actions and mindsets that they find favorable or beneficial.
Carol finds that sharing a worldview can be inspirational, or thought-provoking, to the point that the audience is moved to learn more.
Sometimes when you are silent for so long, speaking about a worldview can catch your audience off guard. Such situations can cause people to be lost on how to react. Carol encourages you to talk about your worldview regularly, so it won’t be as big of a leap for you or your audience. A worldview is not only about politics and strong opinions; your worldview also includes beliefs, passions, and preferences. Carol suggests you start sharing whatever is comfortable for you. Then, step a little past that line to provide value for yourself and your audience.
