DESCRIPTION: A lot of people think that the best leaders and the best networkers are extroverts. But according to networking strategy coach and professional speaker Lori Saitz, that’s not true at all. A networking maverick who describes herself as naturally quiet, Lori is firm about her central message that you don’t have to be different than you are to be good at networking. Rather than telling people that success at networking requires becoming more outgoing or gregarious, she prefers to share simple strategies and suggestions that anyone can use to improve their networking game. On today’s episode of the TalentGrow show with Halelly Azulay, Lori shares a tip for how to make connecting with people at networking events less intimidating and warns against a common mistake she sees people make when it comes to thinking about networking. Plus, she explains how to get the most out of the networking you do (and therefore, not have to do as much of it!) and gives specific advice for leaders on how to understand (and nurture) their quiet people.

At the foundation of being a transformational leader is first and foremost being a healthy human being. This is the conclusion Bob Rosen, a Global CEO Advisor and author of Grounded: How Leaders Stay Rooted in an Uncertain World, came to after working with thousands of leaders around the world. According to Bob, every leader—regardless of whether they’re an entrepreneur, a leader in the middle of an organization, or a top executive—has to be personally rooted in 6 areas in order to be successful in our disruptive and constantly-changing world. In today’s episode of the TalentGrow Show, Bob thoroughly explains what these 6 roots are, what the 6 corresponding disruptors every leader has to grapple with are, and provides not one but three actionable leadership tips (with specific examples, too)! This is a great episode for getting a global, 20,000-foot view of what great leadership looks like. We hope you give it a listen—and remember to subscribe and share!

In this episode of the TalentGrow Show, Jessica Kriegel, author of Unfairly Labeled: How Your Workplace Can Benefit From Ditching Generational Stereotypes, explains everything wrong with the idea of generational differences.

Jessica offers actionable advice and calls on us all to completely ditch this type of labeling, suggesting it can be life-changing!

What can you learn from a hostage negotiator about your own day-to-day negotiations? A lot. Halelly’s guest, Chris Voss, co-author of the national business best-seller Never Split the Difference, is a negotiation consultant and award-winning business school professor. After 24 years as an FBI hostage negotiator, Chris founded The Black Swan Group, a firm that solves business communication problems with hostage negotiation strategies. And he’s a funny guy who gets Halelly giggling throughout this episode as they discussed some pretty counterintuitive negotiation tips Chris suggests based on his vast hostage negotiation experience, all of which you can immediately apply to your daily negotiations in business and in life to see a positive impact on your negotiation results. Learn about why Chris says the word “Yes” is useless, the word “No” is freeing, and the phrase “You’re right!” is the kiss of death. Get actionable advice and then apply it and become a master negotiator!
