    Inclusive Leadership with Heather Hansen

    Inclusive Leadership with Heather Hansen

    Today’s conversation is with Heather Hansen, Global Communication Consultant, TEDx Speaker, Trainer and Author.

    Heather helps top global leaders show up, speak up, and inspire action in a changing world. She focuses on fostering unmuted communication cultures where every voice is heard, resulting in greater inclusion, innovation and efficiency across remote and global teams.

    Along with private leadership communication coaching, Heather facilitates group training courses and consults on a number of topics related to global communication.

    Heather is also an External Industry Expert for NUS Business School’s Executive Education programs where she runs modules on communication, presentation, and storytelling skills.

    I invited Heather to the show because we’ve had some great conversations about inclusive leadership and I thought my listeners would enjoy hearing her perspective.

    We talk about communication’s role in leadership (hint, it’s everything), language, accents, bias, racism, sexism, stereotypes, belonging, and trust — and how language is at the heart of it all. It was a fascinating conversation. I hope you find it helpful.

    Sleep Well to Lead Well with Dr. Phil Gehrman

    On the next episode of The Leadership Communication Show, I speak with Dr. Phil Gehrman, clinical psychologist at the Philadelphia VA Medical Center and Associate Professor of Clinical Psychology in Psychiatry at the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania.

    Phil is an expert in sleep disorders and is on a mission to advance the understanding of the links between sleep and mental health. He directs the Sleep, Neurobiology and Psychopathology lab at Penn and has an active research program exploring the mechanisms and treatment of insomnia, circadian rhythm disorders, and other sleep disorders.

    We met a few years back and recently reconnected because Phil has been lending his expertise to the business community through speaking and consulting programs that help business leaders understand the connection between good sleep, and good leadership.

    So, I invited him to the show to talk about the connection between sleep and leadership performance. It’s a fascinating conversation where Phil shares a lot of great advice for understanding how we sleep, and what you can do to improve your sleep quality. I hope you enjoy it.

    Communicating and Leading Across Cultures with Gilda D’Incerti

    On the next episode of The Leadership Communication Show, I speak with Gilda D’Incerti, CEO & Founder of PQE Group who joined me in my virtual studio all the way from Florence, Italy!

    Gilda is recognized as an international expert in the field of IT system validation in life sciences. And her company is known for helping pharmaceutical and life sciences companies of all sizes achieve, maintain, and even exceed compliance with the latest regulations — contributing to a safer pharmaceutical environment.

    Her company has more than 1500 employees located all over the world, with local subsidiaries in regions ranging from the US to Australia. Gilda founded PQE group in 1998, and now has a truly diverse workforce that represents more than 40 nationalities.

    She’s also a writer who has published articles about leadership, inclusion, diversity, and global business practices for major publications including Forbes.

    Can you see why she’s a great guest for a conversation about communicating across cultures?

    We talk about language, meaning, valuing otherness, and examples of cultural differences that can cause communication breakdowns even with the best intent of all parties. Gilda also shares specific experiences (both achievements and missteps) she has had as a leader when opening offices in new parts of the world.

    Leading Creative Teams with Dan Nestle

    Leading Creative Teams with Dan Nestle

    On the next episode of The Leadership Communication Show, I speak with Dan Nestle about leading creative teams. Dan’s a communicator, storyteller, marketer, team leader, and former teacher — which is something we share in our career paths. And he’s a creator. He writes, he podcasts and he’s a seasoned marketer and leader who currently leads communications for LIXIL Americas — a company that makes water and housing products you likely have in your home or office right now.

    I invited Dan to be on the show because his passion for communications and creativity are very much aligned with mine. We’ve had some great conversations over the past year or so, and I thought a conversation with him about nurturing creativity in teams would be fun.

    We talk about collaboration, creating safe spaces to share ideas, game-changing ideas, authentic relationships, and the importance of communication when balancing creativity and business goals. My conversations with Dan are always fun and insightful — I hope you enjoy listening to this one.

    Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion with Kecia Carroll

    Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion with Kecia Carroll

    On this episode of The Leadership Communication Show, I speak with my colleague and friend Kecia Carroll. Kecia is a communication strategist who partners with organizations doing meaningful work — and her company, KC Roberg, helps small and mid-size businesses and nonprofits elevate their brands and achieve their business goals.

    I invited Kecia to the show today because she has helped many organizations explore the right way to create and incorporate Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion programs. I know a lot of companies and organizations struggle to do it right, so I think a conversation with Kecia will help.

    We talk about culture, purpose, listening, bias, inclusive language, and the critical role of leadership in successful initiatives. Kecia also shares a lot of tips and advice for organizations who are looking to get started on, or improve, their DE&I programs. It was a great conversation and I hope you enjoy it.

Mr._T ,

Helps me grow as a leader

I've taken away something specific from each episode that enables me to be a better leader at work. So far, my favorites are "Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion with Kecia Carroll" and "Productive Conflict with Dr. Robyn."

Jason D. Cochran ,

Incredible show and host!

I had the pleasure of joining Michael to do an episode on burnout and communication around mental health in the workplace.

Michael was highly organized, knowledgeable, and made the conversation very fun.

Definitely one of my favorite podcasts to follow and one of the best guest experiences I’ve had as well.

HeatherFL20 ,

Actionable insights, excellent topics

I always learn something new, interesting, actionable and brilliant when I listen to the Leadership Communication Show — and I’ve been in this business for a few decades. Michael is an informed, thoughtful and engaging host, and he creates a dialogue with each guest that produces inspiration, ideas and practical knowledge that listeners can apply to their own work. This is a great podcast for all marketing communications pros and their teams.
