Listen, Learn, Lead! Teleclass, Podcast & Radio Roundup

Want to smarten up, expand your thinking, and procrastinate a bit longer on that tedious project you’ve been dreading?!? Get ready to listen, learn and lead!

Be Leaderly’s Selena Rezvani has been making the rounds on some great podcasts and radio shows—sharing her insights and thought leadership on some of the most cutting-edge topics affecting professional women today.

Here are three awesome podcasts, two radio interviews, and even a free teleclass that Selena has recently recorded. I think you’ll really enjoy all of them.


Listen to: Selena’s Free Teleclass on Pushing Back for The Massachusetts Conference for Women

What’s great about it: The Massachusetts Conference for Women and its sister conferences, the Texas Conference for Women, Pennsylvania Conference for Women, and Watermark Conference for Women offer up a monthly, incredible educational resource just for women. In a crisp, 30-minute teleclass format, they invite leadership experts like Lisa Nichols, Nilofer Merchant, and Marshall Goldsmith to offer their best, bite-sized learning so you can put it to use right away.
Why this episode: With 4,000 people registered, Selena delivered one of the most popular classes of the year on The Art of Pushing Back: Advocate for Yourself Successfully. Based on her acclaimed book, Amazon.com: Pushback, Selena offers ninja tips for amplifying your voice at work and seizing on those informal opportunities to self-advocate.


Listen to: Mary Lou Kayser’s Play Your Position

What’s great about it: The Play Your Position Podcast is as fast-moving as it is enlightening, entertaining, and uplifting. I know because Play Your Position Podcast: Jo Miller! Thanks to host Mary Lou Kayser, this fun, un-boring series helps you navigate an increasingly chaotic and busy world—and still fiercely meet your goals.
Why this episode: Selena and Mary Lou talk about the roles of men, women, and employers in promoting gender diversity, including the urgent need of organizations to disinfect their workplaces with more good old-fashioned transparency.


Listen to: Born to Thrive with Jamie Lee

What’s great about it: A negotiation thought leader, Jamie Lee started the Born to Thrive podcast as a forum for ideas, tips and tools to help women become bolder, braver and better paid. Talk about an idea we can get behind here at Be Leaderly! Convening a scary-smart group of experts, Jamie has a knack for getting right to the heart of where negotiation is often stickiest for women, and at the same time, most needed.
Why this episode: Selena and Jamie forge new territory in how to navigate everyday meeting culture norms at work – including how women can *interrupt interruptions* in meetings!


Listen to: SAP Coffee Break with Game-Changers, presented by SAP with Bonnie D. Graham – Part I

What’s great about it: Bonnie D. Graham gives a master class in how to curate and facilitate conversations about all things disruptive and transformational. Bringing together a diverse panel to shake up the status quo, this weekly “breakfast” with game-changers delivers new food for thought and inspiration–guaranteed.
Why this episode: Selena breaks down stretch assignments and mansplaining(!) along with her whip smart co-panelists, Robert F. Solomon Jr., Director of Talent Development of the Network of Executive Women (NEW), and Shuchi Sharma, Global VP and Leader of Gender Intelligence at SAP.


Listen to: SAP Coffee Break with Game-Changers, presented by SAP with Bonnie D. Graham – Part II

What’s great about it: If a conversation is really meaty – and I mean really meaty – Bonnie will invite guests on the spot to come back to her series. Not only did she extend this conversation into a second round (this episode), she extended this panel discussion again for a third round (coming soon in August)!
Why this episode: The willingness to stretch at work can mean the difference between getting the plum job or losing out on it to someone else. Along with Bonnie, Selena, Robert and Shuchi discuss the roles of individuals in being ready to stretch—and distinctly, the job of companies in building environments where people want to stretch.


Listen to: Your Working Life with Caroline Down-Higgins

What’s great about it: Caroline’s goal is a bold one: to help women own their self-confidence, so they can literally walk taller and embrace their untapped potential. How awesome a mission is that?! Through her engaging podcast, Caroline brings together leaders like Dr. Lois Frankel, Marci Shimoff, and Sally Helgeson to name a few, all of whom empower and energize people to achieve their personal goals.
Why this episode: Selena and Caroline get to the heart of the little and big ways that women can overcome negotiation barriers to advance their careers, not just for the once a year performance review, but on a daily basis.
