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 passionate about helping others realize their full potential at work. As the founder and CEO of Lead at Any Level, she helps busy professionals develop skills in leadership, diversity, inclusion and career management.

She is the author of “Network Beyond Bias: Making Diversity a Competitive Advantage for Your Career,” is a Prosci Certified Change Practitioner, and a Professional Member of the National Speakers Association.

She began her career as a software developer, later moving into business analysis, systems design, consulting, and management. She has worked at small software companies, multinational corporations, and many stops in between.  She is a versatile manager; having led cross-functional and global teams in both the technology and insurance industries.

Please join me in welcoming Amy C. Waninger.

In this episode we discuss:

  • her thoughts on leadership: “the most important aspect of leadership is courage. It is the courage to do what is right, even in the face of not being popular, and it is the courage to stand up for others and make things right.”
  • how she grew from being a self-proclaimed bossy child into the dynamic and appreciative leader she is today.
  • how she views successful leadership as being able to project where the future is going and meeting people there instead of waiting for the future to happen.
  • her thoughts on connection being the new currency, over knowledge.
  • her C-H-A-M-P and I-G-G-N-O-R-E framework for connecting with others.
  • how she supports people who are vastly different from her on Twitter.
