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 leader in the fields of executive communications, leadership development, and talent management.

She began her career in retail and import industries, which included working extensively in Asia, Latin America, and Africa to negotiate with manufacturers and inspect factories for U.N. Health and Safety violations. She also led customer service for over twenty domestic and international member stores and ran a multi-million dollar warehousing service.

Her international experience provided the foundation for her subsequent leadership development work, helping senior executives communicate more effectively across cultural, generational, functional, and regional boundaries. She shows her coaching clients how to communicate with greater impact and increase their leadership presence. She has overseen organizational effectiveness for a Fortune 500 company and consulted with numerous corporations in the pharmaceutical, advertising, publishing, and financial services industries.

Combining pragmatism with customized solutions, she brings authenticity, determination, humor, and insight to everything she does. A frequent blogger, she has been quoted extensively in Fast Company, Forbes, Fortune and numerous other publications.

Please join me in welcoming Nancy Halpern.

In this episode we explore:

  • how she views leadership: “Leadership is like being a duck. Ducks glide effortlessly across the pond and yet underneath the water, where no one can see, they are pedaling furiously to not even go very quickly. I think that people rely on leaders to have that sort of calmness but also to be these engines that drive everything forward.”
  • lessons learned early on when she was trying to prove her worth as a new manager are now the lessons she teaches her clients.
  • young managers should take advantage of being young by seeking mentors, doing so will make you seem open to feedback and learning.
  • strategies to broaden her professional network includes hosting a variety of events at her home. “I’m better at being a host than a guest.”
