Join my workshop at the New York Public Library, Sunday February 19!

You’ve heard a lot about my book, Leadership Step by Step, its 5-star reviews, and how its exercises change people’s lives. I may have told you about the standing ovation I got at Saturday’s workshop with Marshall Goldsmith.

Now you can see me at a public workshop where I’ll cover one of my book’s most popular (and fun to learn) exercises. Here are the details. Be sure to register!

(You can buy a copy of Leadership Step by Step first to prepare for it and for me to sign there.)

Meaningful Connection: A Workshop

Time: Sunday, February 19, 2017, 2 – 4 p.m.



Meaningful Connection: this workshop practices the skills of creating a meaningful connection with anyone quickly, useful in networking, leading teams, running meetings, one-on-one leadership, negotiation, and more. It’s based on a simple script that removes the challenges of figuring out what to say and allows participants to practice advanced communication techniques, feel and see their effects, and build experience. Participants experience both sides of the interaction.
