Communicating Your Vision and Values to Your Team with Amber De La Garza: Podcast Ep. 222


Subscribe to the podcast!

I’ve always thought of “Speaking Your Brand” as not only how you communicate externally to audiences, whether it’s at conferences and events, on webinars, or on podcasts.

It’s also how you communicate internally with your team members, your clients, and your vendors.

How can you best share your vision and values with your team?

I invited my friend Amber De La Garza onto the podcast to talk about how she has done this with her team members as her business has grown.

Amber and I talk about:

  • The team retreats we held for our respective teams
  • What content we included in those retreats to help our team members better understand our businesses
  • The 3 questions Amber asks her team as well as her clients as part of the feedback loop
  • Speaking Your Brand’s QBR (Queen Bee Role) and how that informs what we do
  • The importance of decision-making filters
  • The nuances of word choice and specific examples regarding words we don’t use with our clients and why
