Today, we’re chatting with Sherhara Downing, the founder and master trainer at Level Comm. Sherhara shares a little about how she built her role for herself, some really good points about how to get collaboration right, how to start focusing on grace over grind, and then we take some time to nerd out about Marvel movies. 



Some things we talk about in this episode:

  • Transitioning from talent to leader
  • Being consistent vs being persistent “how you go at it”
  • Having authority over how you do business
