If you’ve ever traveled for an extensive period of time, you know the stress of making sure your household continues to run smoothly while you are gone. Whether it’s arranging for care of your pets, ensuring your kiddos get to all of their events on time, or simply finding somebody to put the trash out while you are away, it feels good to know that your home life is running efficiently in your absence.
In an odd sort of way, we bloggers feel the same about our blogs when we don’t write for a few weeks. We care for our readers; and some of us even worry that you just might miss us when we’re gone! In that spirit, blogger Karin Hurt of the Let’s Grow Leaders blog has devised a clever way to “keep the home fires burning” on her blog while she travels with her writing partner David Dye to southeast Asia on their Winning Well tour.
Karin and David are the co-authors of Winning Well: A Manager’s Guide to Getting Results—Without Losing Your Soul, a book dedicated to helping leaders blend the bottom line with the human spirit. While she’s away, Karin has lined up several authors and thought-leaders to stop by the Let’s Grow Leaders blog to offer up original blog posts and video content. Each author has been personally vetted by Karin to ensure their worked is aligned with the four components of the Winning Well model: Confidence, Humility, Results and Relationships.
Karin’s idea has morphed into the “Winning Well International Leadership Symposium.” She told me, “We are striving to share the insight of thought leaders we deeply respect so that we can serve more leaders around the world—and have a broader impact on organizations globally who are working to Win Well.” Guest contributors include experts from Canada, Germany, England, Malaysia, Australia, and the United States.
How does the Symposium work? Starting April 21, 2017 a new blog post will appear daily, Monday – Friday. The Symposium will run for four weeks. Each post will have a brief opener by Karin or David sharing the connection they have with that writer. You’ll also get snippets from Karin and David as they tour Asia—including an interview with Brian Tracy and a post from Marshall Goldsmith.
So go on over to Let’s Grow Leaders to check out the Winning Well International Leadership Symposium. Look for the Symposium section in the upper right hand side of the screen; you can subscribe to receive updates.
