Ask for What You Want Advocacy featuring Heather Hansen with David Dye

How to Ask for What You Need (and get it) featuring Heather Hansen

by | May 14, 2021 | Podcast, Winning Well

A good leader knows how to advocate for their team, their ideas, and the resources they need. No matter what you do, you’re an advocate and you’ll love this episode. Award-winning attorney Heather Hansen has spent over twenty years fighting on the battlefields of the courts—but even in her fiercest clashes, she’s remained true to herself and her principles. She shares her journey to becoming an Elegant Warrior, and imparts the wisdom she’s learned from her decades on the bar to help you know how to ask for what you need.

In this episode, Hansen shares the tools and techniques she’s honed in the courtroom and makes the case that anyone can become an Elegant Warrior: someone who fights adversity with grace and compassion; and battles without losing respect for themselves and their adversaries.
