Often called a digital Dale Carnegie and the Tony Robbins of tech, Erik Qualman is a #1 Best-selling author and motivational Keynote Speaker that has spoken in 44 countries – and on the podcast – he offers both motivation and tactical tips as a leader in the digital age. We cover content from his most recent book, How to Sell on LinkedIn: 30 Tips in 30 Days as well as one of my favorite that inspired my own research, Digital Leader: 5 Habits Simple Keys for Success and Influence. In our conversation, we also discover how we were both walk-on college athletes, and share the hard work it took on and off the court. Erik and I also discuss the attention on college athletes’ social media platforms. Throughout the podcast, we explore skills for digital leaders that include posting it forward, finding the balance between on and offline and actively producing your digital reputation.

Leading With Hard Work and Heart Work with Shea Kidd Brown

It is so difficult to be mindful online these days. The apps and algorithms are just not designed to keep us in the present. And with so much curation necessary to create our idea of a “perfect profile,”  how can we make sure we are showing up in our digital accounts and profiles in a heartful way?

My guest today has mastered the art and science of being her whole self online. Whether she is weaving the values her grandmother taught her into presentations or sharing the intimacies of her adoption journey on social media, Dr. Shea Kidd Brown consistently stays true to her commitment to sharing both her personal and professional journeys openly and genuinely.

Shea has enjoyed a long career in college administration at a number of institutions of higher education in the southeastern region and now serves as the Vice President for Campus Life at Wake Forest University. 

In this episode, Shea discusses her perspective on storytelling, congruency and the importance of bringing humanity into digital spaces. We’ll also dive into how balancing personal and professional narratives is essential for creating an impactful online presence and how Shea uses these platforms to create active, mindful connections for her campus community.
