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 last bad day was July 11th, 2001, a day that changed his life in a significant way.

Experiencing a harrowing cycling accident was the catalyst to the seminal shift that changed his perspective, mindset, and actions. Since then, he has been helping leaders make change stick at work and in their lives.

In addition to executive coaching and speaking, he is the best-selling author of “Shift: Creating Better Tomorrows,” and the founder of a leadership academy that helps people become the wealthiest person they know, from the inside out.

Please join me in welcoming Michael O’Brien. 

 

 

In this episode we discuss:

  • his thoughts on leadership: “Leadership is really about knowing your purpose, trying to paint a compelling vision of the future, connecting with others, and then making it about their success.”
  • how baseball coaches shaped his views on leadership from a young age.
  • how his cycling accident changed his life and the significant mindset shifts he went through to start living his life on purpose.
  • the intention he puts into his leadership academy, and how he connects with each and every student.
  • his experience with being a minority at a conference and how that led to him becoming President of a chapter of the Healthcare Businesswomen’s Association.
