On the Schmooze

Welcome to On the Schmooze, a weekly podcast that features a mix of interviews and solo shows. My hope is that insights from me and my guests will help you achieve the leadership position you’re seeking, build and sustain your professional network, and find the work/life balance that works best for you. Interviews are with talented people from different fields. We explore how they built strong networks and overcame challenges on their way to becoming successful leaders. I identify a key take-away from each interview, something you can put into action that week that you’ll benefit from for years to come. In the show notes I provide resources to help you get started. Solo shows are shorter episodes where I share practical networking tips and techniques you can put into practice right away. Podcast inspired by Dorie Clark, Pat Flynn, Jonny Nastor, Dale Carnegie.

Today’s guest is a leading expert on real estate damage and has consulted on major catastrophes around the globe. He consulted on the World Trade Center, the Flight 93 Crash Sites, the BP Oil Spill, Hurricane Katrina, and several tragedies including Jon Benet Ramsey, OJ Simpson, and the Heaven’s Gate mass suicide mansion. Earning him the nickname “Master of Disaster.”

Currently, he leads Landmark Research Group. Prior to this, he led a national practice at PricewaterhouseCoopers, the world’s largest consulting firm. His extensive research has taken him to all 50 states and the seven continents. He is known for his ability to gather complex information and present his findings in a straight-forward, intelligent way.

His book “Me We Do Be” shares principles that are the result of his research at the intersection of sociology and economics. He interweaves classic behavioral research with his own work on high-profile cases―to reveal why some dive, some survive, and others thrive.

Please join me in welcoming Dr. Randall Bell.

In this episode we explore:

  • how he defines leadership: “The greatest myth out there is that leadership is some kind of position, title, or degree. Leadership has nothing to do with any of that. Leadership is essentially doing things in a way that others will want to follow.”
  • his journey over 25 years that resulted in the creation of his Me We Do Be principles.
  • how he maintains relationships across vast geography and disciplines with the help of technology you have in your pocket.
  • the simple truth that building great relationships is based on kindness and empathy.
  • the power of the phone calls in an age of digital connection

Stay tuned until the end of the episode to hear what I thought were the key takeaways you could put into practice this week and benefit from for years to come.
