Chantal Capodicasa of TD Bank: Speak Up!

View descriptionShare

Laura welcomes Senior Vice President of TD Bank, Chantal Capodicasa, to talk about how she found the courage to speak up in defense of her team and challenge a directive in a time of crisis.

In this episode you will learn:

  • How Chantal challenges the misconceptions about ‘lenders’ at banks, and illustrates how they are more ‘relationship managers’ for bank clients.
  • How Chantal’s family’s battle with cancer showed her how being vulnerable can leave space for her team to show up for her in ways she didn’t realize she needed
  • How speaking up in a meeting, even when it’s just to ask a question or gain clarity, can benefit you and your team
  • How storytelling in an interview can show you have the ‘It’ factor employers are looking for

24 Hour Challenge:

In your next meeting, if you’re usually one of the quiet participants, speak up! Ask a question, share a best practice, or encourage participation from other teammates.
