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 helps executives break through the fears that hold them back from being the best leaders, strategists, business developers, and team members they can be.

He knows a thing or two about how to overcome fear based on his first two careers: For twenty-two years, he served as an FBI Special Agent and Hostage Negotiator and prior to that he was an ordained minister for six years. In both cases, he had to deal with people under extreme pressure and he saw how fear affected their ability to think clearly and make good decisions.

Building strong relationships has always been at the core of his work, whether it was a high-stakes interrogation, fugitive apprehension, or counseling a family. He teaches what he’s learned so others can operate from a place of confidence, flow, and connection.

Please join me in welcoming Chip Massey.

In this episode we discuss:

  • his thoughts on leadership: “Leadership is stating where you are right now, the direction you are headed, and then offering others with the same ideas and visions to follow along and travel with you.”
  • how six years in the ministry taught him servant leadership and prepared him for his future.
  • how being a hostage negotiator for 22 years gave him the skills needed to help people work through their fear and anxiety.
  • his experiences as an FBI hostage negotiator.
  • how his desire to help people has always shaped his career choices.
  • how his love of superheroes made a difference in his life.
