Welcome to judySpeaks!

This website is for people who consider themselves formal leaders, emerging leaders, and individual contributors who aspire to influence others in greater ways.

I love developing and coaching leaders to be the best they can be.  I believe it is critical for leaders to be different, to stand out in their organizations and model the qualities necessary to be an influential leader for their direct reports and others.  They need to be courageous and willing to speak up and stand up.  Leaders should be ‘real’. They must be intentional about looking for opportunities to develop others and help them achieve their goals.  A true leader will keep growing and learning themselves. They believe that feedback is a gift.  Otherwise, they limit their success.

The leadership journey is not easy, but it is rewarding.

What do you wish you had known starting out as a leader?  If you would like to follow my blog, ‘Straight talk for Emerging Leaders‘, please sign up below.  We’ll share straight talk with you about being a leader, the importance of coaching, using influence (and what destroys your influence!), how to communicate effectively, establishing credibility, and a bunch of other topics.  If you have a topic you would like to learn more about, please email me at judy@judyspeaks.com.
