Michael Kithcart on Being Your own Champion

Mar 17, 2021
 

Season 2, Episode 11

Summary:

“Champion is about being a warrior and an advocate. When you break it down, if you’re rallying a team, building a business, working on being the best version of you, how could you be anything other than a champion?” – Michael W Kithcart

The only thing I love more than winning is helping other people win.

Everyone needs a champion in their corner, someone who sees the potential before you do, who believes in your ability when you’re not quite yet there.

At the same time, it’s essential to learn how to champion yourself, make your voice heard, champion your dreams. 

This week’s episode breaks down the many ways champion is not reserved for athletic elites, but rather a movement to bring out the very best in yourself and others.

Jodi Duncan on Women Supporting Women

Mar 10, 2021
 

Season 2, Episode 10

Summary:

Why aren’t women more supportive of other women? For all the women’s organizations, networking groups, and women empowerment programs, so many of us have experienced times when other women didn’t have our back, that we weren’t united or even interested in empowering others. This is a conversation that’s been had by many privately, and we want to change that. On this episode of Champions of RISK, Jodi Duncan and I talk about what’s changed from when we first started our professional careers and the barriers we still witness. Jodi has long championed women in the workplace. She is the President of Flint Communications, a full-service marketing communication agency headquartered in Fargo, ND., and writes about her experiences and observations in her blog series Women in Business.

Is ‘freedom’ really the answer you’ve been searching for?
