Her first book, Say Something Real, walks the reader through the drivers of authentic and inauthentic communication. The book also features captivating stories told by two dozen individuals who’ve come through the doors of Interact Studio over the years.
A member of the adjunct faculty at the McColl School of Business at Queens University of Charlotte, Lou is the co-founder of the school’s annual TWIST Conference for Women. Her articles and insights have been published by Fast Company, Entrepreneur, and HBR. Her research, conducted in collaboration with Harris Interactive, sheds light on the communication practices that keep leaders from engaging the people who report to them.
Lou has just published her second book, Freeing Your Radical Hero: Fighting the Impostor Mindset, which is a little book about a very big topic. Inspired by Lou’s TEDx Talk, “The Surprising Solution to the Impostor Syndrome” (approaching 100,000 views to date), the book is filled with honesty, answers, and exercises. Her purpose, in an accessible, down-to-earth way, is to help others fight the inner critic and the impostor mindset – a journey that can be both humbling and exhilarating.
For a personal learning experience that will enable you to leverage your own story, Lou invites you to join her for “Storylines That Connect,” a special course offered twice a year at Interact Studio. If you want to be the communicator you were meant to be, owning your story is nonnegotiable.
