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 global leaders enhance their ability to adapt, contribute, collaborate, and grow.

A former Financial Times executive, she started out her career working on strategy as a management consultant and as an assistant to Dr. Henry Kissinger at Kissinger Associates in New York.

She is an adjunct professor at Columbia Business School Executive MBA Global Asia and the author of “Future Proof: Reinventing Work in an Age of Acceleration.”

After a diverse global business career spanning over two decades and four continents, her priority now is to help others re-imagine a productive, profitable and exciting future of work for themselves and their companies via teaching, writing and consulting.

Please join me in welcoming Diana Wu David. 

 

In this episode we discuss:

  • her thoughts on leadership: “Leadership is  about stepping up and helping people unlock their potential and accelerate their dreams.”
  • how her leadership journey started when she became a hall director in college.
  • her desire for identifying people’s special talents and helping unleash them for the good of the company.
  • how most of her amazing positions have been the result of a productive accident.
  • how storytelling and active listening have helped her grow in each business endeavor.
  • her method for networking that involves connecting with others who share similar values and interests.
