Hi, everybody. I’m back from my crazy trip to Istanbul via London. I had a great time, but I’m exhausted. I went with my friend, Jennifer McClure. We have so many absurd stories that I’ll share next week.
But right now I wanted to tell you that Jennifer is reading Thrive by Arianna Huffington. Have you read it? I haven’t, but it looks good. I know this because the book was on her bedside table as I was rummaging through her stuff, and I read the jacket.
Jennifer is a busy speaker who travels, and Arianna’s book speaks to people who are driven to succeed and struggle to find balance. A healthy business requires a healthy lifestyle, and I can tell you that it’s not easy to make good choices about rest and nutrition when you’re knocked over by work.
Arianna spoke at last year’s WorkHuman event, and she had interesting things to say about how HR can add value by slowing things down and asking our leaders to be more mindful when it comes to behaviors and attitudes in the workplace.
So Jennifer’s nighttime reading reminded me to tell you about WorkHuman 2016. My friends at Globoforce host a conference about the future of work. This year’s keynote speaker is Amy Cuddy, and she has a book called Presence. I haven’t read it, yet. Maybe Jen can leave that book on her nightstand on our next trip so I can look at it.
So I’m excited to attend WorkHuman. Full disclosure: they pay me to do behind-the-scenes marketing, but I’m happy to go above and beyond my contract because the conference was personally valuable in 2015. That’s not something I say lightly.
I have high expectations for WorkHuman 2016, and yes, I have a discount code for you. It’s WH16LR300, and I would love to see you there.
