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 believes that everyone should have access to equal opportunities and wants to see talented professionals succeed in their career. To achieve this, she helps organizations be more diverse and inclusive so that everyone’s talents are utilized and valued.

She is an author, keynote speaker, and organizational consultant. She also serves as a business school adjunct professor teaching courses about Women in Leadership, Organizational Behavior, Diversity in Organizations, and Leadership and Ethics.

She was the 2017 Diversity & Inclusion columnist for Training Industry Magazine and is the author of “The Power of Perceptions: Leadership, Emotional Intelligence, and the Gender Divide.”

Please join me in welcoming Dr. Shawn Andrews.

In this episode we discuss:

  • her thoughts on leadership: “I see a true leader as being someone who inspires others to follow them based on their respect for that person, or their admiration of them.”
  • how her older sister was a role model and an influence on the career paths she has taken.
  • how her journey took her away from 22 years in the corporate world, to the entrepreneurial world she has embraced since 2015.
  • her thoughts on diversity, inclusion, women, and leadership and how she developed those passions through research for her dissertation.
  • what she has learned about EQ and IQ and how EQ is a stronger determining factor of success over IQ.
  • different mindset shifts she has experienced as she left the corporate world and joined the entrepreneurial world.
  • how her networking styles changed when she left corporate, and what she does to nurture relationships now.
