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 a social entrepreneur committed to guiding leaders and organizations to create healthier workplace cultures that resonate with current and incoming leaders.

She is an award-winning entrepreneur, dynamic speaker, and diversity and inclusion expert. She founded a strategic leadership and diversity consulting firm that coaches business leaders worldwide on the critical issues surrounding talent and workplace strategy.

She is a passionate advocate for social equality and works to help businesses foster healthier and more productive workplace cultures. Her book “Inclusion: Diversity, the New Workplace & the Will to Change” inspires leadership to embrace the opportunities that diversity represents and to empower advocates to drive changes that resonate in today’s world.

You’ll find her sharing more on this topic on her podcast, The Will to Change: True Stories of Diversity and Inclusion.

Please join me in welcoming Jennifer Brown.

In this episode we discuss:

  • her thoughts on leadership: “Leadership is environmental. Sometimes you have to be the charismatic leader and sometimes you need to step back and support others and their voices.”
  • how growing up with a theatre mom shaped her comfort with leading others.
  • her understanding of privilege and how everyone has some sort of privilege and it is important to understand and work around.
  • how it bothers her to not remember every person and their story and the methods she uses to overcome that.
  • what she is learning about finding the balance between self-care and being an empathic leader who wants to change the world.
  • how she has learned to utilize the art of powerful questions for relationship building.
