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 is one of the world’s leading experts on business networking. He was called the Father of Modern Networking by CNN and one of the Top Networking Experts by Forbes.

He is a keynote speaker for major corporations and associations around the world and has written 22 books about various topics like networking, marketing, and achieving success in business and life. He has been named Humanitarian of the Year by the Red Cross and was recently the recipient of the John C. Maxwell Leadership Award.

Currently, he is the Founder and Chief Visionary of BNI, the world’s largest business networking organization, which was founded in 1985 and now has 8,350 chapters in 71 countries.

Please join me in welcoming Dr. Ivan Misner.

In this episode we discuss:

  • his thoughts on leadership: “When one person is willing to follow you, you are a leader. A leader’s role is really about encouraging people to achieve goals.”
  • his Emotionally Charged Connection and how it defined his course and influences so much of what he does in business.
  • how seeing the light bulb click on for the audience he is speaking to is one of his favorite things about the work he does.
  • his thoughts on social media, connection with others, and the harmful effects of benign neglect.
  • his belief that diversity is the key to building a powerful personal network.
  • what he means when he says “entrepreneurs are either working in the flame or in the wax”, and what his flames are.
