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 was named one of the Top 100 Speakers for 2018 by Inc. Magazine and was selected by Marshall Goldsmith to be in his 100 Coaches project.

She is an executive coach who helps senior executives and high potential leaders create permanent positive shifts in their leadership impact and the results they achieve, and also works with founders and CEOs to help them lead for scale.

She is a member of the Cornell Entrepreneurship Advisory Board, and is on the faculty of the “Runway” program, an accelerator which helps post-docs commercialize their research and build companies. She is an angel investor in and advisor to a number of start-ups in the US and developing countries.

Please join me in welcoming Alisa Cohn.

In this episode we discuss:

  • her thoughts on leadership: “Leadership is all about helping people move forward and create momentum. It is not just about giving them steps toward their goal but also helping them gain the confidence to take those steps.”
  • her strategies for meeting people at conferences, having the confidence to do so, and following up with them afterward.
  • how working with people who are motivated and who learn how to take leaps are what motivates and inspires her.
  • how her belief in herself and her confidence in her ability to figure things out are what guides her.
  • her methods for networking that include listening for ways to help, and then doing the small things that make a huge difference to other people.
  • her thoughts on diversity and the importance of exposing yourself to different mindsets.
