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 globally recognized expert on executive presence and communicative leadership.

During her first career as an award-winning broadcast journalist, she interviewed top influencers and developed a keen interest in discovering the qualities of successful leaders. She channeled that energy to bring together a team that today is at the forefront of innovation in executive and leadership development.

Her firm is distinguished for its ground breaking research and model of executive presence, which global organizations use to help leaders make a bigger impact.

She is the author of several books, including her bestselling business book “Speak Like a CEO: Secrets for Commanding Attention and Getting Results.” She is the past president of the New England Chapter of the National Speakers Association and a Certified Speaking Professional, a professional designation held by fewer than 12 percent of speakers worldwide.

Please join me in welcoming Suzanne Bates.

In this episode we discuss:

  • her thoughts on leadership: “Leadership is rallying people to achieve a vision.”
  • how her leadership skills began with admiration of her dad and his ability to lead as a community leader, especially during hard times.
  • how she learned it was time to leave journalism and how she found the courage to start her own career.
  • her belief that people are only capable of growing to the place they believe they can be, and how she helps people go from where they are to where they believe they can be.
  • her first experience teaching a class in person, after twenty years behind a camera, and how she learned to challenge herself to grow.
  • how she has learned her own biorhythm and has learned to utilize it to shape how she spends her personal and professional time.
