I clapped when Kim Blue said this during our interview. 

Kim is a Human Resources Executive and the Global Head of People Experience Partners At Zoom, where she has been leading the company’s worldwide team of HR business partners since October of 2020 (ie: since the middle of the pandemic).

She’s a brilliant executive, an inspiring thought leader, and a master of what she calls ‘executive advocacy.’

Executive advocacy refers to your willingness to advocate for yourself like an executive leader.

It means being confident in your skills and aligned with your leadership values so you can show up powerfully to any interview, meeting, or situation.

In this episode, Kim and I dive into how executive advocacy will help you own your value, step into your next interview with confidence, and excel in whatever role you’re in.
