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 unleashes human potential through mindfulness techniques. Known as the C-Suite Network Advisor on Mindfulness in the Workplace, she helps stressed-out leaders find and sustain greater focus, clarity, and inner peace, resulting in a more grounded and powerful presence and enhanced profits.

She began her career in the world of nonprofits and volunteer leadership, teaching thousands of association staff and volunteers how to reboot for success. Today, she takes the best of her strategic vision expertise, blends it with mindful leadership practices and her event background to curate experiential events that change hearts, minds, and companies.

She is the author of several books, her latest “Everyday Mindfulness: From Chaos to Calm in a Crazy Work” was an Amazon top new release in 2018. She has received numerous awards and is the producer and host of the Everyday Mindfulness Show.

Please join me in welcoming Holly Duckworth.

 

In this episode we discuss:

  • her thoughts on leadership: “Leadership is the combination of skills, characteristics, and abilities that fit into the idea of the position. It’s important to understand that everyone is a leader because everything we do begins with leading ourselves first.”
  • how leadership came naturally to her but how she didn’t consider herself a leader until other people pointed it out to her.
  • her journey from being a meteorology major to mindfulness coaching.
  • how she works for organizations to help them develop a practice around being present in the moment and mindful.
  • the seven components to being a mindful leader and how to implement them.
  • the specific mantra that she says every day to help manifest her desires into her life.
