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 helps people develop the insights and courage necessary to act outside their personal and cultural comfort zones when doing important, but challenging, tasks in work and life.

He is a professor of international management and organizational behavior at Brandeis University and award-winning author of “Global Dexterity: How to Adapt Behavior Across Cultures Without Losing Yourself in the Process” and his more recently published book “Reach: A New Strategy to Help You Step Outside Your Comfort Zone, Rise to the Challenge and Build Confidence.”

His research has explored the dynamics of psychologically demanding tasks, including necessary evils and organizational change. He writes regularly for Harvard Business Review, Psychology Today, and Inc.com, and consults and speaks widely to corporate audiences.

Currently, his work focuses on the challenges people face when adapting behavior in foreign cultural settings.

Please join me in welcoming Andy Molinsky.

In this episode we explore:

  • his thoughts on leadership: “Leadership is having the ability to create a compelling, conclusive, and bold vision, and to inspire people to go with that vision.”
  • how his love of helping people transpired to his career, where he helps people overcome the things they are scared or uncomfortable with, but is necessary for their business.
  • how he has worked to move from writing academic papers to giving speeches and coaching.
  • his ability to switch gears between work and family multiple times a day because he loves what he does.
  • his method for enriching and engaging his current connections, while networking to grow his circle.
  • his unique views on how anyone can be a leader while also being exactly who they are.
