Lead With Confidence

Desiree Petrich

Welcome to ’Lead with Confidence,’ the podcast where we explore the journeys of leaders who inspire, empower, and believe in others. Join me to discover your self-confidence and happiness in love, life and leadership! This isn’t your typical leadership podcast; we’re here to celebrate leaders who aren’t defined by titles or corner offices. Instead, they’re defined by their unwavering commitment to becoming better versions of themselves every single day, and never stopping in their desire to add value to others. My mission is to uncover the stories of these remarkable individuals who lead by example, to learn what their formula is for success, because guess what… The formula is different for everyone! Take what you want and leave what you don’t. we’re here to learn and grow together. I’m Desiree Petrich, owner of Intentional Action, motivation speaker, and executive coach. I can’t wait to join your journey to learning to ‘lead with confidence’. Connect with me on Linkedin and Instagram @desireepetrich read less
