Todd is also a TEDx speaker and the author of "VisuaLeadership: Leveraging the Power of Visual Thinking in Leadership and in Life.

Today Todd joins me to share his journey. He talks about his experiences as an extreme introvert and what pushed him to speak up and speak out. He explains what visual leadership is and how it can have an impact on exchanging ideas. He talks about how storytelling can have an impact in technical and financial fields. He also asks us to think about how our stories and metaphors can relate to our audiences.

“Storytelling is inbred in us. Stories are motivational. They are human. They make you vulnerable.”

“If you're not willing to toot your own horn or raise your hand or speak up and speak out, our organizations miss out, our teams miss out, and we miss out.”
