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 learned through a family health crisis how crucial human connection is and became an expert on how effective leaders can boost human connection in cultures to improve the health and performance of individuals and organizations.

For more than a decade, he and his colleagues have worked with a wide variety of business, government, healthcare and education organizations to boost connections in their culture. They share best practice attitudes, language and behavior to create what he calls “Connection Cultures” that have propelled the success of teams and organizations including the rock band U2, Costco, the U.S. Navy, NASA, and Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center. His message resonated so strongly that Texas Christian University founded the TCU Center for Connection Culture based on his work.

He is the author of two books, “Connection Culture” and “Fired Up or Burned Out.”

Please join me in welcoming Michael Lee Stallard.

In this episode we discuss:

  • his thoughts on leadership: “Leadership comes out of a leader who cares about both people and results. It is deeply rooted in a person’s care for others, and those leaders are the ones people follow.”
  • the role sports played in his life and how he learned about leadership from the action of different coaches he admired.
  • how his wife’s cancer battles changed his life and further developed his views on connection.
  • his knowledge about loneliness and its harmful effects on health, as well as his methods for overcoming loneliness to truly connect with others.
  • his view on cell phones and the importance of putting them away during meetings to help increase connectivity.
  • the culture framework he created and follows to encourage people to be leaders who help others feel connected instead of controlled.
