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 her clients make wise decisions, prioritize leadership actions, and prepare for higher level responsibilities through customized executive education and coaching. She shows senior corporate, military, government, and nonprofit leaders how to create cultures that grow leaders, build organizations, and deliver dynamic organizational results.

As a clinical psychologist and former active duty Army officer, she brings her unique experiences and perspectives to the leadership conversation. She shares her insights in her book, “Lead Yourself First! The Senior Leaders Guide to Engaging Your People for Greater Performance and Impact.” As she says, “You are the instrument of your leadership, so tune up and play the music only you can play.”

Please join me in welcoming Dr. Karen Wilson-Starks.

In this episode we discuss:

  • her thoughts on leadership: “Leadership is about building influence. It is about influencing people around you to move or act.”
  • how her leadership qualities existed from a very young age, beginning with her teaching her younger brother how to break out of his crib as a toddler.
  • her deep appreciation for seeing leaders and teams discover their unique gifts and learn to leverage them in their business.
  • how her mom’s illness and her husband’s out-of-state work gave her the final push to leave the corporate world and start her own business, and how she has grown since then.
  • her method for ensuring she has plenty of self-care and travel, no matter how busy her work-life is.
  • how she has worked to always continue learning, growing, and exploring the world and different cultures, and how that desire led her to a living room in Saudi Arabia.
