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 both analytical and creative in nature and enjoys blending the art and science of marketing to tell stories to the right people, at the right time, and in the right places. She’s excited by work where human interactions meet digital experiences — especially when driven by data.

Decades ago, she helped create the (then) fastest growing company in American history: Compaq Computer. After working at Compaq for fourteen years, she left to start Oneteam, a consulting firm that helps senior leaders create internal strategies that support their organization’s external growth.

As the president and principal consultant at Oneteam, she serves as an executive advisor and consultant to CEOs and senior organization leaders to grow their companies with outcomes including IPOs, acquisitions, market share increases, and dramatic leadership development. Her work has enabled sustained growth in a multitude of companies, from startups to Fortune 500 firms, including Aetna and BMC Software.

Please join me in welcoming Karen Walker

In this episode we discuss:

  • Karen’s views on leadership: “Leaders help create a vision and hold everyone accountable to do their highest and best work, a process I call No Dumbing Down”
  • Her process of learning that everyone can create and achieve more if they work together as a team.
  • Karen’s views on networking: “There is no such thing as a steady state of business, you are either growing or falling behind.”
  • How she has worked to centralize what she needs to do and what she needs to delegate to others.
  • Her way of staying present by remembering the quote, “be where your feet are.”
  • How she believes networking is an opportunity to help other people as much as it is an opportunity to have others help you.
