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’s mission is to gently eradicate small talk from the planet.  He is the co-founder and Chief Experience Officer of We!, an organization whose mission is to create conversations that matter.

Leaders call him when they want to amplify connection, belonging, and trust within their organizations. He created We! Connect Cards, a tool being used in 50+ countries to build stronger connections.

He has spoken at TEDx, is the author of the Pocket Guide to Facilitating Human Connections, and with his business partner wrote Ask Powerful Questions: Create Conversations that Matter.

He has led workshops, trainings, and interactive keynotes for a wide array of companies including JetBlue, Starbucks, Johnson & Johnson, Penn State, and Goodwill.

Please join me in welcoming Chad Littlefield.

In this episode we discuss:

  • his thoughts on leadership: “My most simple perspective of leadership is being able to create some possibility that otherwise would not have happened without you.”
  • how he transformed into a leader when he learned the powerful art of asking questions.
  • his experience giving a unique TEDx talk about positive social interactions.
  • how he learned the importance of recognizing that no one else is an object on the stage of his life, and how he uses that mindset to truly value others.
  • how he uses an app to create video conversations to connect with people he has just met.
  • his mindset shift away from apologizing for bugging others to offering himself as a service to them.
