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 believes we are all connected and can achieve more significant results when we learn how to build relationships with all people, regardless of their packaging.

She is a diversity and inclusion strategist who specializes in helping organizations make diversity and inclusion a competitive advantage. She is the author of two books and was included among the top 100 Global Thought Leaders on Diversity and Inclusion by The Society of Human Resource Management (SHRM)

She is a past president of the Global Speakers Federation and was recently inducted into the Speaker Hall of Fame.

She has presented to audiences on six continents and in thirty-seven countries, plus in the middle of the Atlantic and Pacific oceans.

Please join me in welcoming Lenora Billings-Harris.

 

In this episode we discuss:

  • her thoughts on leadership: “True leaders have a vision with clarity of outcomes. They inspire others by the way they carry themselves and have the ability to direct, guide, and listen.”
  • how her leadership skills first showed up in elementary school when other students would go to her when something needed to be taken to a teacher or the principal.
  • how her grandparents and her dad helped develop her leadership skills.
  • the most rewarding part of her work today, when she sees people globally realizing that peace is the way.
  • her methods for helping businesses create a culture of inclusion and diversity.
  • the significance of her trips to Africa, and how that love started when she was in third grade.
